    Nov77, It was my first perminent duty station I was on det 7 we sailed to the Mediterranean and the Indian Ocean. My last cruise was south America. Those were some of the best times of my life you just had to deal with racism I learned that it's just part of our country's way of thinking. Their are people in this world in all races that are haterand I don't think that there is a thing we norMal people can do about it. I learn to out think them and enjoy my time in service I enlisted 2nov1977 and retired 30sep95 early out program
    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 aol.com )
    1981-1983, I was an AW and sat crewman. I was on the USS Clark (FFG-11) for a 6 month deployment. Hopefully of me practicing search and rescue on that deployment
    1984-1989, I was in HSL-32. My name is Barry Loyd. I was on the USS Stark when hit in 1987. I lost all those friends whom I call family. After another duty assignment I went back and decommissioned HSL-32 and 34. The last of the SH-2F. The gulf was of an all new design for the reserves.l retired in 2005
    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 )
