Thank you for the welcome Emmet.  I appreciate it.  Rota was a very good duty station.  My wife and I were active in the Boosters Club supporting the school.  I usually did sliders and she worked in the trailer fixing up hotdogs, etc.  I often think of the setups for the various events and how hungry the Marines were when the 'gator freighters' came into port.  The grills we used (barrel halves) could accommodate 96 sliders at a whack and sometimes we'd sell out a whole grill full to just four or five guys.  Couldn't keep up with the demand the first day or so after those guys came in.  Thanks again for the welcome.  Jim

Thank you for the welcome.  I am interested in shipmates that attended hospital corps school from Nov. 1965 to March 1966.  Also, interested in shipmates that were stationed @ Annapolis Naval Hospital from March 1966 - July 1967 & Wash., D.C. from Aug. thru Nov. 1967.

A day in Bay Hill Galley, Gitmo 1968-1969 Guantanamo Bay Naval Base

Posted on May 16, 2018 at 7:30am 5 Comments

I had the alarm set for 4:00 am to be in the galley for 4:30. It is already hot, as most every day on the island. I fill the big stainless coffee urns and have a cup myself. I drink it black. Then, from the recipe card, which is made for quantities of 200 portions, start the “soup of the day” in one of the big steam kettles. I will work with a wet towel around my neck and swallow the salt tablets from the dispenser that hangs on the wall. If working the grills I make eggs to order for the…

Lazy days off in Gitmo, Guantanamo Bay Naval Base

Posted on May 16, 2018 at 12:30am 3 Comments

Being a cook at Bay Hill Galley, I worked port and starboard, 15 days a month worked with every other Friday, Saturday and Sunday off. There were about six cooks to each watch as I recall, and two night bakers total, who alternated. On an off day I might go lift weights after breakfast, then write a letter to my girl or go to the commissary store. Then perhaps drive to Windmill Beach (we had our own truck) where the iguanas hung out on the cliffs along the beach. I had a mask, snorkel and…

Lambert’s Point Naval Deperming Station, Elizabeth River, Norfolk, Va.

Posted on May 3, 2018 at 4:30pm 0 Comments

Consists of several free standing piers forming 3 Deperming slips, barracks and process control building.

I was here in 1967 wrapping cables around ships for the deperming process and one of two commissarymen on the station. While I was stationed here a fire started in the carpenter shop under the galley that spread to some of the berthing area. I was working on the automatic potato peeler in the galley and smoke started coming up through the deck from below. When I ran down the…

Quarters K Naval Barracks Arlington, Virginia

Posted on April 20, 2018 at 10:00am 2 Comments

A now defunct station that was built sometime during or before World War II. It was my first duty station after leaving Great Lakes Naval Training Center in late 1965. It was located along the Columbia Pike In Arlington, across from the old Navy Annex, Bureau of Naval Personnel and the Marine’s Henderson Hall. Fort Myer, being just down the road, afforded me the opportunity to go to a movie in the evenings and take an occasional stroll through Arlington National Cemetery. The Cemetery, The…
