My first shore duty was Mayport, 63-65, was assighed to Special Services. What a racket, operated the three lane bowling alley , the Basin Bowl located in the theater and snack bar building.
Ron Bereman mention Norberg 's Bar on Mayport Rd, Norbergs is where a bunch of sailors in Special Services spent alot of their spare
time. Cliff Norberg was a great guy, usually he sat in a booth and you would help yourself, if you had a tab, just mark it down.
I wonder how many remember Mary"s on Wonderwood Dr, Screwy Louie's and Uncle John"s on Atlantic Blvd.
My next tour was 72-74 on USS Escape and I finished up at FMAG
74-76. Bach then, Mayport was the best kept secret in th Navy.

David, I served on active duty from 1963 to 1967 and stayed in the active reserves for the remaining two years and you are right, that was a long time ago.
