"I was actually attached to lower base. The HM1 on board at the time I believe his last name was Roberts or may be his first name was Robert. Had lunch on board a couple of times and I think we did one rad con drill on board."

Darrell, this year's Guantanamo Bay reunion will be in Buffalo/Niagara Falls, NY.  I don't know if Garland Summerall will be there or not.  I met him at our Gettysburg reunion in 2009.  Bill Gazar was with us in Branson and I enjoyed the time that we got to spend together.  Try to make it to Buffalo, August 23-26.  You can check out website for further details.
