Looking for stretcher bearers

I am searching for anyone that served as a stretcher bearer at NSA Danang. 1965-66.
I was stationed in the dry goods dept of the hospital, but frequently volunteered to be a stretcher bearer at triage I/ mass casualties. There was a sign up sheet on the wall at the hospital: it was voluntary.
Navy resource center says they have no record of me being a stretcher bearer, so I'm trying to find someone else that can confirm anything to help me.

SALT AND PEPPER UNIFORMS

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…

Smoky Mnt. Submarine Base

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.

Agent Orange/ Asbestosis/Ischemic Heart Disease/TIA"S/PTSD/ Sleep APnea

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…

unearned medals

Why anyone would want to wear unearned medals is beyond me. I don't even wear the ones that I earned. Not that I'm any kind of hero.

The most important thing isn't the medals, or who has them. It's the sacrifice made by much better men than me.

USS Constellation 1964-65 cruise

 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?

Helping Veterans relocate

I am a retired veteran so I know what it is like to move over and over again. I have since become a realtor in Florida and I would like to help veterans with relocating, retiring or just trying to get settled in a new and unfamiliar place. I am able to connect to anyone in the real estate industry in any state. Where are you moving to next?

There are no rules

I don't have to start at the beginning to write my play. Don't have to start with book one, page one, line one. In fact I was thinking of starting with book 3 and see what happens.

Duty in Iceland

My last duty station on active duty was in Grindavic Iceland about 15 miles from the main base at Keflavic. I asked for orders to Iceland because I had 15 months left on my enlistment and people had told me it was great duty! It didn't take me long to find out how wrong that was! Grr! We didn't have the internet in those days so I could not research it.

The barracks I lived in had it's on gally and chowhall and only one good cook. It was that Thanksgiving that I realized what an…
