Hi Ellen, I got over to Roosey from Ft. Allen right after you left and can appreciate everyone's memories. My son was born in the hospital there. If time travel was possible... Hope more of those who were there when you were turn up! - Bob

 I was stationed at Rosy Roads from 59 to 61.I lived in the old barracks for about a year & then moved into the new ones which at the time seemed like condo's to me. I played on the station softball team & had a great time having beach parties & watching the panther jet drones doing loops & rolls & crashing into the sea & on one occasion cartwheeling down the runway. On weekends we would drive to San Juan & visit bars like the sea club & in Santulce there was Al's Little club where the show girls hung out after their gigs were up.That place was so cool, it was upstairs & the ceiling was so low you couldn't stand. There was only one bathroom & there was a traffic light in front of it, red - in use- green- empty. I'm smiling as I write this thinking of those times. I know some of you war vets feel differently about your hitch & I stand & salute all you guys for your service but to this day I feel so lucky to have been a peacetime sailor.

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!
