This is funny, and unreal at the same time. I am a native Californian, when I decided to go Navy and signed up in 1979, it was because my Father, two Uncles, and my Brother were Navy, and I used to hear all the places they went, and things they did.

I had a buddy who signed up with me and we were to go in on the buddy program, well I ended up going to boot camp, two months later due to graduating High School.

Long story short, I went to boot in San Diego, was T.A.D for 6 months on the USS Dixon sub tender awaiting Hospital Copsman "A" school, then went to "A" school in San Diego @ the Naval Regional Medical Center. After graduation from "A" school, I filled out my dream sheet, my third choice was San Diego, you guessed it, they station me not only in San Diego, but to the Naval Regional Medical center.

That was the extent of my travels in the USN.

LOL, almost never, it was the Dixon and Sperry I believe, we called them the USS never sails. We did do a shake down during my mess tour for about four days, but you're right.

I noticed last year when we were at the point, both ships were gone, and the pier, or at least I think that was the sopt.

I've been on two cruises, one with the OB the other with the Mars, and I will admit that I somewhat missed going on deployments. On the other hand, the BS can be overwhelming.

I'm a SoCal native from Alhambra, and proud to serve and be the first member of my family to have ever served in any branch of the military. I'm part of the first generation of my family to be born in this country so that's a pretty big point of pride for myself.

I'm currently still in South Dakota and on the fence about staying in, applying for retraining status or getting out and taking my AA and finishing my BA to start working on alternative energy.

It's an honor to be among you all. :patriot:

Was there still a bar called Spanky's just outside the main gate?

I remember playing pool there one afternoon and hearing a roar from the bar (out of sight), seeing a long-haired kid come flying backward into view, landing on his ***. A MSG, in uniform, and wearing a cast from his ankle to his hip, came slowly hobbling into view, stood over the kid and bellowed "Well, I'm a soldier in the Army, love it, and, if you have anything more to say, let's take it outside!"

The kid said nary a word and crab-walked out the front door.

I worked with a lot of 97B's in the 527th MI BN (CI) in Germany, then again a number of agents who did non-public stuff based in the D.C. area, but operational worldwide.

Ooh, 96R! They were 96K's when I was there - affectionately called "pop-up targets."

I still love that area. Beautiful mountains, great desert. Fond memories.

She was, but the command sucked. I loved going to work each morning to see how much more they cut away of her during the night.
I was on the decom crew and couldn't wait to get away from there.

She's currently in Bremerton sitting next to the hulls of the Virginia and Long Beach. Lovely barges, eh? :43:

Didn't they change the drinking age around 2000 or 2001? I was there for AIT from Aug. 2001-Jan 2002 for 96B, but I failed a test and had to reclass. They made me a fueler with a TS clearance lol.

I remember them saying that a while before we got there that not only did the drinking age used to be 18, but also that soldiers were allowed to visit Mexico since it was so close, if i remember correctly.

Awesome story. LOL - yep, pop up targets. We got no respect until we were in theater jumping out of choppers with SF and scouts. I loved the area too. I think Spanky's was still there, but we played it safe and went to Tombstone or farther or into Mexico to get ripped.

That's a fact. Got another Ray-O-Vac sailor onboard my current F'ing Fig that was onboard sametime I was. It's a small Navy.

'98, were you on the decomm crew?

No, just missed it. The EW1 that relieved me was though!

This makes 5 out of my 6 ships that have been decommed, scrapped or sold.
:(

I've still got one of those patches/stickers around here somewhere!!

:cheers2:

Don't feel so bad, every command I've been to has been decomm'd or changed into something else and no longer exists. Maybe it's me? :laugh:
