THANKSGIVING DAY

I was getting ready to make a post wishing everyone a HAPPY THANKSGIVING 2016, when I started thinking of where I celebrated this day during the time I was in the NAVY.

1961 - My RECRUIT TRAINING company had graduation a few day prior so I was able to make it home with the family. Then I reported to USS Rockbridge APA-228 in Little Creek VA.

1962 - I was attending ET/A School in Great Lakes and I never traveled home during my time there.

1963 - I had just reported aboard fro 2 weeks on the SAT before, so I'm pretty sure I ate on the boat. It was a slow week as I recall with all the JFK stuff going on, etc.

1964 - We had just entered into PNSY for overhaul. CS1(SS) Daniels put together a deer hunting party and we drove up near Elsworth ME. He had been stationed at a communication base nearby and knew people there that put us up for a few days while we ran around disturbing the local deer. We ended up returning with a buck and that is another story to be told. Anyway, some of us slept on the floor of a small workshop out back that the owner used to build / repair his lobster pots and his wife cooked dinner for us. It was memorable.

1965 & 1966 - We were in NLON and I was able to make it home to NJ


HAPPY THANKSGIVING to my SHIPMATES and their families. I hope you all have a memorable day.
