Thank you for the greeting Tom.

Boot camp for me was the Great Lakes in February of 1967 with two foot of snow on the ground.

My first duty station was aboard the USS Raleigh LPD1 out of Norfolk until January of 1969.

Then I was attached to the VQ-4 squadron at Patuxent River Naval Station until my discharge in November of 1970 as an ABH3.

It would great to hear from a shipmate who served at either one of these commands.

USS Raleigh was a great ship with a great crew and also many great Marines aboard as well. The long nights and long days were made more comfortable by the friends you served with. And then there was mid rats. Special!

PAX river was also a great tour of duty with a lot of things to do there.

Also good friends and even good chow.

So I hope more Sailors and Marines come aboard to join this site.
