1979-1980 Seeking those who knew my friend AT2 Richard Thomas Able, USN, or may have photos. He was a member of HSL-32 when he was killed in a tragic accident while on liberty in Naples. Ship's name? As I understand he was in town making a phone call home to Norfolk. As he headed back to the ship he fell down a dark stairwell resulting in a fatal head injury. Richard left behind a pregnant wife and infant daughter. Richard and I were fellow barracks rats and classmates in A school. Thank you, Douglas Storie AT1 US Navy (Ret)
yes, I was attached to his squadron out of Norfolk and discovered his body along with our Master Chief in Naples. Our ship was the USS Donald B Beary (FF 1085). George Williams AD2 ( nbstc15 at )
1991-1992, My name is Alton Franco. I am looking for people that was in my squadron. I was in a car accident during the Gulf War and would like to reconnect with some of them ( alton.franco at hotmail com )
