I logged into VR-8 in August 1949 fresh out of AD "A" school. Went to Johnston Island for
6 months tour. Back to Hickam AFB, Worked in nose docks on engine position 2. Worked as
a flight orderly starting in June 1950. Was great duty at Hickam. Went to NAS Hutchinson,
Ks in 1952, then to VR-21 at NAS Barbers Point in late 1954. Worked on the flight line there and flew as FM until receiving orders to report to the USS Lexington (CVA-16) for
duty. Shipboard duty was not for me. Took a discharge in late 1957 and went into the USAF
and retired in late 1968. Hello to anyone out there I may have known.

The better half and I have been to all but the first three reunions, we have enjoyed eaach and every one. Mostly because we enjoy seeing old Navy friends and sometimes meeting new ones who have just joined. Monte had kept this together and has done a hell of a job listening to all of the griping and bitching from the sailors. Stud keeps the web site going and it is all volunteered and doing and outstanding job. I have also come in contact with sailors that I had done duty with before and they were with Mats prior to my duty tourand slso made many friends of people we met at these reunions. I guess it doesn't matter who we are but in the end we are NAVYMATSVR'S

My two tours at Moffett were the best of my career. I loved the Bay area. I cruised the Santa Cruise Mountains on my Harley many weekends in the early fifties. Half Moon Bay was one of my favorite spots. I worked 19 months on graveyard crew in VR3. Also made three embassy runs with VR8. Five years ago I saw a Connie flying at McChord Field near Tacoma. It was the first one I had seen in over thirty years and sure brought back a lot of memories.

This is our new Guestbook. I'm sorry we keep losing them, but maybe this one will last a little longer. Lets get this one off to a bang. Everyone who has previously signed in may re-sign and get this thing up to date again.
