I remember the Post Office and some of the people over there. I agree, we had to have known each other. Who did you remember from Personnel?

Welcome Aboard, Paul!

I'm Bill Karr. My son Doug created this site and I help him out a bit. We hope that you enjoy it.

The following message is from Doug:
1. Be sure to upload an image of yourself. You can add your image on your Footlocker.
2. Click the Commands tab and search for your commands so that you can join them and add them to your page! This is how other shipmates will find you.
3. Invite all your shipmates!
4. Don't hesitate to add an event or a reunion to the Events tab!
5. We've also started Commands for each State. Be sure to join or add your own state!

I give out gifts often for those folks who participate on Navy Vets! Be sure to start up a blog post or two and tell us all about your time in the Navy!

Thanks,
Doug
