Quarters K Naval Barracks Arlington, Virginia

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 Navy 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 Tomb…See More

Hello, My dad is the actual Navy Veteran. I lost him in 2013. He was on the USS BON HOMME CVA- 31 from Dec. 55 to Feb 59. I joined this group to find possible surviving friends of his. I know he was in Japan also. I have looked up his ship. Saw actual footage on YouTube. I desire to travel to California some day & cross the Golden Gate bridge because he went under it on his ship. He was stationed RECSTA, T. I., Sanfransico, California.

Hello Emmet,

 I worked over at the Liquid Oxygen Plant at the Air Station. The plant was at the end of runway overlooking the entrance to the bay. Best duty station I had. Would go to mainside to go to the commissary to stock up the kitchen at the plant. Sometimes we would shoot over to the White Hat or the Copa. We had a nice little EM club over on our side. There were about10 or 12  of us working there. We stayed in Quonset huts along side the plant. No barracks for us. Air conditioned too! Hitched a ride on some of the ships that were headed to port calls in the islands too

   Met one of the guys I was stationed with at the plant on this site. We arrived at GTMO within a month of each other and left a month apart too after a year there. Saw his name and made contact. Got together for lunch and found out we live within 10 miles of each other in NJ. Have stayed in touch. 

   Before GTMO I was on board USS NORTHAMPTON CC-1 from Sept. ‘67 until Feb. ‘69. After GTMO I went to Newport RI on board USS MISSISSINEWA AO-144 in Feb. ‘70 until my discharge in Apr. ‘71.
