Old Sailors Poem



OLD SAILORS SIT AND CHEW THE FAT

IN POORLY LITE BARS SITTING IN THE BACK



THE LIVES THEY LIVED AS THOSE DAYS DON'T LAST

AND ALL THE GOOD TIMES REMEMBERED FROM THE PAST

WITH THOUGHTS OF BELL BOTTOM BLUES

AND THOSE LITTLE WHITE HATS

AS THEY SINGLE UP LINES

BOTH FORE AND AFT



THEY RECALL LONG WATCHES LATE AT NIGHT

WHILE THE STARS AND MOON

WHICH SHINED…

HI John, Been a while since the Yokosuka Sailor days. Not much from here except growing older. After my last duty on the USS Doyle, DMS34, I Went back home to Alabama and was studying refrigeration on the GI Bill. I got a tip that led me to Montgomery, AL, where I went to work with the Associated Press. After about six years I got into the newspaper business, and bounced up and down the eastern states for a while, finally retiring in Harrisburg, PA. Since then I have lived beside the Susquehanna River and probably will be a:River Rat" for the rest of my days. Glad to hear that you are still involved in keeping the old and new Navy experience alive and kicking. R AR

John - might have bumped into you at one time - I was on the Blue Ridge, Midway and Dubuque while they were home ported in Japan - very possible it was the Dubuque (I reported onboard Sep 90 - actually flew out ahead and met the ship in the gulf for Desert Storm/Shield and retired onboard in Jun of 93 I was the only Intel type (ISC) onboard. Blue Ridge was during 83-86 and Midway was 77-80 - Once I got to Japan I was basically there for my career (77-93) - had that end of fiscal year PRD. - Was definitely a Yokosuka Sailor - Westpac all the way. In between the ships I pulled shore duty at CNFJ N-2.

John,

I was stationed at TI during ET 'A' school in 1972-1973.  I wonder just what buildings are still standing.  Is it now state property?
