I was stationed at Rosy Roads from 74-76 and it was a beautiful place to be.I woke the the morning after arriving at night and said to myself, "Yeah, I can stand this military duty!!". Brought my wife came down we lived off base until when moved into base apartments.Loved the place but not the pay, so I got out of the military to make some decent pay.

I was stationed at Roosy from 1/69-12/70 and it was a beautiful place to be. I arrive in ma ind as an E-3 ; the only ame at aimd, made E-4 inn Mav ,became air crewman on the 2  uh-34j helos. Most of our  flight time was spent lighting up targets for the weapons range. Brought my wife and daughter down in J uly and lived off base until Nov. when moved into  base apartments. We spent a lot of time on the beach and loved it. I made E-5 in Nov. 70 just in time to have everything shipped home free. I really miss the time spent there. I left PR. and went to Nas  Oceana Va. attached to  F-4 squadron vf-33 . Made a Med. cruise from Sept. 16- Mar, 16 72.Discharged upon arrival. Probably biggest mistake of my life getting out. Was young and foolish but very proud of my service!

the best time in my life was when my dad was in the navy for 30 years and i was able to travel with him and live on or near naval bases and also when i was in the navy.it gave me an education in and out of the navy that you just cant get as a civilian. now my youngest daughter is joining the navy this summer and she will know what its like. after you i served in the navy  i had a hard time relating to civilian in  the work force.this roosy rds web site is great i was able to link up with a man who knew my dad and had served with him on base security if any one who served at aimd from 74 to 79 i would like to hear from you.

I was stationed there from Jul "84" - Jul "87" at AIMD W/C 400.  My Supervisor was Vic Cora.  Love to get with friends/shipmates during that time frame.
