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.

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…
