David,  I was there from August 1969 until VA-44 was decommissioned in 1970. My best memory there was playing on the base football team with Chief Jackson.  We went on to the 6th fleet east coast championship and was defeated by the Navy Seal team.  What a ride that was.

Thanks, and thank you for your service also.

Thanks for the welcome. I've got some great pics I'd like to add of the ship and her crew. Will add soon.

Thanks for the welcome, David. I need to get my profile squared away, and might have to do it over a few days time. I'm happy to be a part of this with all of y'all.

David, I am also a member of Hull.com. Under that web site I can see various info about the Anchorage's history. I am trying to find out how to get ahold of shipmates that may have info about our trip to Anchorage, AK back in 70 or 71. I happened to be in Anchorage a couple years ago and I visited their historical society and was asking about our visit, they said they had no record of our visit only the newest USS Anchorage a few years back.

Is there anything you can do?

Mess cooking was a blast. Met some of my best friends ever there. We ate well without having to stand in line for hours. Good in-port liberty.

Thanks David .  Looks like some good stories in there. I'll have to look so more tomorrow when I'm not so tired. Been a long day.

I did bootcamp and AT school in Orlando FL December 92-March 93. Reported to the USS Guadalcanal LPH7 April 1st 93. Went on a 6 Med cruise I think in August 93. We got sent to Smalia in October via the Suez Canal, Red Sea, the Gulf of Aden and into the Arabian sea. We floated off the coast of Africa for a little more than a month. We got permission to leave our station temporarily to cross the equator so we could become Shellbacks. Eventually we decommissioned her in Norfolk VA in August of 94. Got set to the USS Connolly DD979 from there. Had so.e medical problems and got processed out in May of 95.
