Served on board Old Pro out on Guam from 84-89.  R-7 Div O/Planning Officer, DCA, and eventually CHENG.  Had a chance to return to Guam various times in the following years.  Other than being in command; nothing in my career topped AS-19 and Guam!

Feels like home, I spent a lot of time on the Big "P".  May -'61 to June '67, then again July '77 til Aug '79. Charleston, Holy Lock, Rota, Guam, and Long Beach.  I met a lot of good people, had a lot of good times.

The old "Pro", R-6 Division. Operation Fiery Vigil. P.I. Did 3 years on her. Worked in the foundry 1988 - 1991. Friends Dan Osborne, Shawn Greene, Rey Pamalo, Dave McKown.
Guam, what a beautiful place to be homeported. Kind of wish that I had never left.
I didn't De-comm. her. All male enlisted.
Lots of plaques and too many wire rope sockets.
