Honored Military Alumni
Class of 1965
Navy, 20+ Years
Stationed on 5 ships (USS Tutuila ARG-4, USS H.W. Gilmore AS-16, USS LaSalle AGF-3, USS L.Y. Spear AS-16, USS Nimitz CVN-68) 4 overseas stations (Viet Nam 1966 & 1967, Japan 1969-1972, McMurdo, Antarctica 1972 -1973, Sardinia 1973-1976), and 2 stateside shore stations (Fleet Training Center Dam Neck 2 tours, and Naval Air Station Ocean Weapons Dept). I worked in the logistics field (ran warehouses/store rooms, financial, supply support) as well as many collateral duties (leading petty officer, career counselor, ship's armed security, officer of the deck in port, damage control, training petty officer, chief master at arms for a dining facility, and several others). I would have to say my two favorite duty stations were McMurdo, Antarctica and permanent Shore Patrol in Palau, Sardinia. In Antarctica, I was the base newspaper editor/publisher, was a radio DJ on our local station, WASA FM-100, had a band (McMurdo Country Sound), and pressed my divisions uniforms (only starched SeaBee greens around). I picked up several languages enough to get something to eat, shop, get directions and hold a limited conversation. I still keep in loose touch with 3 people I met in my travels (Turkey, Kenya, Italy). When in Israel, I met an Israeli soldier and we wrote for several years, but his sister notified me that he was killed in 1998. I would do my whole career over again if I could. I'd like to go back to Antarctica if not to work, but at least to visit.
Class of 1977
Navy, 20+ Years
I served all over the country, my duties switched me back and forth from Nurclear Submaines to L.M.E.T. Instructor. I served 25 years.
Class of 1963
Navy, 20+ Years
Went into the U.S. Navy to avoid the draft that was sucking people off to Vietnam! Entered in 1965 after working for the Delaware Highway Dept. as a draftsman and since my birthday is at the end of May and notices were coming out for April I beat them to it!
I went to Nuclear Power School, stayed as an instructor the went to the USS Enterprise for 4 years. Reenlisted and went back to the Schenectady N.Y. training site as I had been part of two reactor refueling jobs and another was coming up. After that went to the USS Bainbridge, CGN25, then to USS Truxtun, CGN35 then finally to USS Texas, CGN39 when I got sick with an ulcer and other internal issues so I finally retired with a little over 20+ years.
Used GI Bill to go the college and get a BSCS and MSSE and a California teaching credential (valid for life!!!). Worked as a software engineer and Oracle database admin and retired at the end of 2009. Started teaching evening adult computer classes in 1989 and finally retired from that in April 2017.
Had lots of hobbies: road racing motorcycles, racing bicycles, doing triathlons, racing vintage Porsches, building giant kites (one is in the Smithsonian in DC) and finally building muzzle loading rifles and doing some competitions.
I have 5 daughters, 4 grand children and two great grand children and so far all have become great people!
Wee have lived in Chula Vista, CA since 1969 and have a great view of that Pacific Ocean. Last time we went to visit Delaware was in 2003 for a reunion and some day we might get back there again?
Class of 1998
Army, 7 Years
I served in the Army from September of 99 to June of 06. I went to basic training at Fort Sill OK, then to AIT at Sheppard AFB in Texas for my MOS 91-E (Dental Tech).
