Emmet Molloy replied to Andy Warywoda's discussion black pens with the silver band in the middle
"That was just one example, they came in different colors and with different styles. It may be another brand of pen that you are referring to but the Paper Mate brand had two little hearts on the pocket clip if it had a pocket clip on the pen. "

"Thanks, yes it was very interesting. Only time I ever got to the NAS was coming or going when I first arrived  and when I left to be discharged at the Navy Yard in Philadelphia. Also, when I was on leave either to Pennsylvania or Maryland. "

Emmet, Qtr's K was my 1st Duty Station after Boot Camp. Reported Feb 58 for one year. 

Reported as a FN and changed to SN and became a CS Striker. I went on to make the Navy a career and retired as a CWO4 Supply Warrant Officer. I had a great career. Then worked Navy and Army Civil Service with 2yrs in Sigonella, Sicily and 11 in Germany, what a ride!!!

I now live in Manning, SC with my beautiful wife and 2 Toy Poodles. Howard King

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, Norfolk

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

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 ladder, the shop below was on fire, too much for a fire extinguisher to handle. Efficient damage control by the crew…

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…
