A Social Network for Navy Veterans of the United States of America

I entered the Navy in June of 1968. Boot Camp Co.#511 in San Diego, Ca. Went to VA-22 NAS Lemoore,Ca.attached to USS Bon Homme Richard. I then transfered to B-School in Millington, Tn. Then onto VA-75 NAS Oceana, Va. Beach, Va. & USS Saratoga. I then got sent to NAS Sigonella, Sicily. Then to VR-1 NAS Norfolk, Va. for 6 weeks then reassigned because of personnel cutbacks They gave me orders to Corpus Christie, Tx. but I swapped orders with another E-5 and I went to NAS Key West, Fl. Honorably Discharged in April of 1976. That is it. My time in the Navy were some of the best years of my life and I would never trade them for anything. I met a lot of very nice people while I was in and a lot of them I will remember foreever. I really appreciate what the Navy taught me and I thank them for showing me places that I otherwise would never be able to go. Thanks to all of you vets out there. Kenneth C. Huth ADJ-2.

Hi Joe, In August 1972 I was getting ready to go to NAS Sigonella at Catania, Sicily. Was there for approximately 2 years, then to VR-1 at NAS Norfolk, Va. I was there for about 6 weeks then on a manpower cutback I was sent to NAS Key West, Fl. I really enjoied my time in the Navy but the most fun I hade though was on our WestPac cruises. I enlisted in the Navy on my 18th birthday on April 29 1968 left for Boot Camp in June. I was discharged in April 1972. I had quit school in my junior year and I have never looked back! I never regret my decision to quit school and joined the Navy. I have been to places and seen places most people just read. I also know what it is like to go from a polywog to a shellback. I was able to do it on the USS Saratoga, what a lot of fun that was. I really miss my Navy days at times. Gotta Go Ken Huth.
