I was stationed at Alameda when I was sent to the USS Coral Sea right out of boot. Nice city and had a lot of fun with shipmates and civilians.

I was in the Seabees on the east side of the base.  CBU 409/416, from early 1972 to May 1975.  My worst week was when a fighter jet crashed into an apartment building on the island.  We helped the search for bodies and clean up. When I was on night and weekend duty, I got to shuttle the troops from the EM club to the ships.  More than one fight broke out between members of different ships.  We also had to help the Marines guard the main gate from Vietnam protesters.

I was stationed at NAS Alameda on temporary duty from October 1956 until February 1957.  While at Alameda I worked in the enlisted personnel office.  Mr. Madison, a Warrant Officer, was the officer in charge of the personnel office and Chief Kittrell was the chief in the office.  After I left Alameda I went to AN"P" school at NATTC  Norman, OK and then to NATTC Memphis for AT"A" school.  The only other person I remember after all these years was Delores Corbeil,  I think was a YN3.

Joined VA-216 in A4-F Skyhawk squadron in March of 1969.  Spent my last 6 months in the Navy there at Alameda enjoying all the nightlife around the base at Dale's nightclub just outside the base.  Good times and good year 1969 . . .  ;-)
