I was in the Blue Jacket Choir in August-September 1967 at San Diego. What a privilege this was! It was a fun adventure and, at times, a real challenge. I also was on the whale boat who delivered Coronado to the beach of San Diego so he could "discover" California. The press was waiting for him to be delivered to the shore so the could interview him.
I believe the chief who taught us how to…Continue

Hello to all of my fellow shipmates! I am in need of information, FAST!!!! I am a veteran who served between 1988-1995 as well as a current college student. I am writing a paper on the history of enlisted uniforms and I have some gaps of information that I am having some difficulties in finding answers to. They all deal with the so-called 'Salt and Pepper' uniforms. I have seen pictures of some of those uniforms on Google and Bing but there are still questions left unanswered. The…Continue
If there is anyone who would know how to obtain a list of the personal of a particular unit that you last served-in I would be grateful if you would respond.
The Smoky Mountain USSVI Base in Knoxville, Tn. is currently trying to build a replica submarine to be used as a float in local parades and veteran events. We hope to have it built by May 1 to be used in the Dolly Parton Sevierville, Tn. parade (yes that Dolly). We have set up a gofundme.com/smokymntbasefloat account, please consider donating. Any amount large or small will help us perpetuate the submarine service.

Back in 1978, I received a Letter from, Pa. Senator Arlene Spector, to get a Agent Orange Physical, well I did, plus four more A/O Physical, did not here from the VA, until 1983, I put Claims in for five years, and every time I was denied, so I did not stop there because that is what the VA wants for you to do, so the VA would save money, but I did not stop there, my wife, and my military friends, kept pushing me, so I kept going, always getting denied, so I wrote a letter to my Congressman…Continue

I was with VA144 Roadrunners this deployment. We we involved in the Gulf of Tonkin Incident with the USS Maddox and USS Turner Joy. We lost a couple of pilots. One was LTjg Alvarez who was in our squadron. He was shot down and captured.
We sure spent a lot of time at GQ during this cruise and long times at sea. Our cruise lasted 9-10 months. Anyone else on board then?

Any Veteran that Does not think that the Supreme Courts ruling that wearing of unearned medals is considered free speech is an insult to all of us does not value their service and must consider their time in the military a complete waste of tims, and I feel sorry for them!
