Was stationed there from April 61 to April 63, assigned to AUW unit, and it was the best shore duty ever. Never forget the "Cuban Missile Crisis" and the frantic pace of activity, and watching the training that the UDT guys went thru over on Vieques (before they were called "Seals"). And the Corona beer with the rice & beans in Cieba and weekends in Fajardo and Old San Juan. A lot of good memories!

Assigned to the Security Department from October 1974 till October 1977.  I was one of the base investigators and worked with the patrol dogs.

.As a retiree arrived at Rosy Roads in April 1991 on my own sailboat. Lived at the Marina on base and worked at MOE down on pier #1 as 3M maintenance coordinator of ten Navy owned vessels for a year... the recovery of spent torpedoes on the AFWTF range was our main objective of the GE contractor, over the course of some 8 years of living at the marina I taught 200 people to sail with the Red Cross course so they could rent sailboats from MWR at the Marina. Sailing over to Green Beach on the end of Vieques and going over to Culebra was the way to spend a long week end.
During the 18 months of 1994>95 my wife and I both worked on the construction of the new commissary. she was the office pay clerk and I was maintenance manager for all construction equipment. it was only about 4 years old at the time of the base closing.
Hope some of the people we knew back then find their way to this site for some memory stimulation's.
