Retired to the sticks in Kentucky, and loving it.

After 20 years for me (22 for Scott, AOCS, Ret.), and with the changes that were coming down the pike, we knew it was time to call it quits. We had a double retirement ceremony at Shifting Sands, Dam Neck in fall of 2000, with over 200 friends and relatives in attendance. Was a blast!

The Navy was good to both of us, and we miss the people terribly. However, we still see some good folks every now and then. In fact, the judge from my initiation is only half an hour away (Al Murray, AVCM, Ret.). I miss initiations! We had some great times, and were quite a team, Scotty and I!

If anyone ever longs to see a physical reminder of the beloved "Guppy," we have a tail fin in our yard. Come and see us if you're in the neighborhood!

Hi June,
Thanks for the info. There are several sailors who have gotten in touch with me who also literally saw the sailor, Brian Lightheart, give his life for his country. And I have heard from a couple of sailors who helped pull his remains out of the intake as I observed. I appreciate the help.

Welcome Aboard, June!

I'm Bill Karr. My son Doug created this site and I help him out a bit. We hope that you enjoy it.

The following message is from Doug:
1. Great Photo.
2. Click the Commands tab and search for your commands so that you can join them and add them to your page! This is how other shipmates will find you.
3. Invite all your shipmates!
4. Don't hesitate to add an event or a reunion to the Events tab!
5. We've also started Commands for each State. Be sure to join or add your own state!

I give out gifts often for those folks who participate on Navy Vets! Be sure to start up a blog post or two and tell us all about your time in the Navy!
