Started boot camp in June of 1966.  Company 66 - 332.  Our company commander was, N.O. Bondurant, BM-1. He was a nice guy but tough. I did well in boot camp. Near graduation, when our new duty assignments were posted on the wall; I was the only one out of 76 men that was assigned to the Seabees.  No one knew what the Seabees were!  When I asked Commander Bondurant, he just smiled and said was " All I know is you are going straight to Vietnam"!  I actually went to Builder "A" School in Port Hueneme, CA  and then permanently attached to "Mobil Construction Battalion One" in Davisville, RI.  The next 2.5 years were two tour's in Vietnam based out of Danang with many detachments all throughout the Northern "I Corp" region.  My last year was in NAVFAC Antigua, West Indies.

Was in Company 74-044

Although I arrived from the Midwest (Kansas City), 50 degrees in San Diego in January is cold, especially on "Worm Island!"

Sorry to hear and see this historic Naval Training Center closed!

Imagine all those whom have passed through those gates!

I attended RM "A" school here from Jul 1975 until Oct 1975, then IMCO school until Dec 1975. I had a great time and a lot of fun in San Diego with some great shipmates.

We had a few PBR's and a Swift boat or two alongside just for some stuff.  Had USS Crockett alongside for a couple of days in VungTau, Republic of South Vietnam.   I see Texas has a few PBR's down on the border right now.
