A Social Network for Navy Veterans of the United States of America

Glad to hear from you.  Slowly but surely we make contact with old shipmates.  I am Facebook friends with Kent Garrison from boot campo and with Elaine Carey from Corps School.  I know Ernie Goodwin is on Facebook, I have messaged him a few time with no response.
There are four Facebook pages for RTC Orlando, the largest being Naval Training Center Orlando (NTC) Boot Camp.  There are multiple HM sites and Great Lakes hospital & corps school sites also..
Also FYI, there is a reunion planned for all RTC Orlando alumni this October (Check out RTC Reunion on Facebook).
As you probably know the base in Orlando is gone,but the Central Florida Navy League has erected a Lone Sailor Memorial in the Baldwin Park complex.  They have paver bricks available through their Facebook page.
Glad to hear you and Gloria are doing well and very successful in your careers.  Say "HI" to Gloria for me.
I am working on year 21 of marriage.  I worked full-time EMS qas an EMT-Paramedic in WI for 32 years before I had to retire on disability (Neck and Back).  MY wife and I also did 12 years volunteer work with a K-9 Search and Rescue team covering WI, MN, and IL.  I also did 12 years Naval Reserve in Madison, WI (NRNH 1013 GLAKES).  I was activated for Desert Shield/Storm, went to Great Lakes and worked on of the ER teams and also worked Staff Ed and taught EMT courses.  I also worked part-time with our local tech college teaching and testing BCLS/ACLS, First Responder and EMT classes.
Still live in WI, in fact inherited the house I was raised in, lots of upgrades since you were here.  Currently recovering form neck & back surgery, I now have 2 neck and 2 lumbar fusions.
Again, great to hear from you.
