6903 started in September of that year...I was married and lived in a trailer up on Easter Egg Hill, made 2nd and moved to Navy housing just outside the North gate...I wish I could remember more of the names of guys I went to school with...Actually, a guy that was in Sect. 8 lived right next door to me...I'd know his name if I heard it. There was a guy by the name of Bill, from Washington State, I believe that was in Sect. 8 that I went through ETA and NPS with. We did a bit of fishing together. He was single and drove an International Scout, lived on base just down from the school.

There was so much studying, that I didn't get a chance to hang out too much while in Bainbridge...plus my home was only an hour North, so I spent a lot of time there on weekends.

I got into a pissing match with the command and lost. No drugs, etc....

Not to brag, but I was one of the best EW's in the Navy at that time, young and didn't mind showing everyone I knew how good I was.

I made the ops boss look the JA he was quite a few times, it really made him mad, an MIT grad being made a fool of by a highschool dropout. I think the 2 times on RIMPAC, that I made him look the fool in front of the Commodore was too much.

Anyway, I had a lot more fun as a snipe, and was MMOW of #2MMR as an E-4, second in the history of the ship. Was recommended for EOOW as an E-5, would have been the first, but one of the BTC's didn't like twidgets, former or otherwise. Plus I made him look the fool that he was too.

Getting the picture yet?

Yep, I have a problem with authority. But I did my job better than anyone else, and followed direct and lawful orders at all times.

I trained the MM side of #2 MMR myself and took the team from failing 3 OPPE's in a row to getting the highest readiness score in the PAC fleet at the time.

At that point I left, at a high point with an RE-R1 reenlistment code.

I paid my dues and did my time, and am better for it today.

Was I always right? No, far from it at times. But I stood by my decisions, good or bad.

First in my class EW "A" school
Third in my class EW "C" school, I was coasting through, I already had pulled off a new enlistment contract at this time.

Fully Qualified An/SLQ-32 Operator/tech
Fully Qualified AN/WLR-1 Operator/tech
Passed EW Supervisor school first time through as E-4
Made E-5 first time up (which was really easy considering the empty billets, except I only had a 3.4 eval and barely a command recommendation)
Recorded the signal from a ruskie radar sat with the WLR-1 while underway
memorized all of the known missile threats and their associated radars even if it was not a concern in Pacific waters. Memorized all US missiles I could get the info on.
Memorized all weekly intel traffic dealing with potential threats
Qualified EW sup as E-4
Command authorized to launch chaff without TAO approval.
authored several rewrites of the technical manual set for the AN/SLQ-32
Discovered the first known failure of the AN/UYK-19 computer during a run through the EW range. I was ridiculed and told I was wrong, that the computer never failed, until the top Rayethon engineer on the West Coast arrived and told them the same thing I told them.

I could continue, but most will say I am full of BS, or that it is just another sea story.

It really doesn't matter any more, except for a rant such as this every now and then, I am over it.

I know who and what I was.

Funny thing was, that command was the ruin of a couple EW's careers, good ones at that. The ones that couldn't change a fuse, or identify a signal, made Chief. LOL, they could drink coffee, shine shoes, iron military creases and cut their hair though.

Hey Kilost, I'm also a former HM'er, although quite awhile before you LOL. I was in HM-16 (The Seahawks)the squadron that was decomissioned and became HM-15 when they moved out to Alameda from Norfolk. I was in from '83 to '88 and when I was just an Aviation Electronics Technician Airman (AT/E-3) I was actually the first and then one of only 9 in the entire Navy at the time to be trained on the AN/AQS-14 Search Sonar system. Also worked on the AN/ALQ 141 and a little on the MK-105 "Sled"

Always liked working with the SeaBee's in our squadron. Was good friend's with quite a few of them.

Here's what our squadron Logo/Patch looked like.

http://members.aol.com/helmineron/hm16logo.gif

Pretty close to the HM-15 Logo except your "Hawk" was black and faced the other way and ours was over top of a porcupine mine.

YEAH THEY CALL THEMSELVES THE BLACKHAWKS NOW. YOU KNOW THEY ARE GETTING OUT OF CORPUS CHRISTI AND MOVING WITH THE OTHER SQUADRON HM 14 IN VIRGINIA.(IF THAT STATE DIDN'T LIKE THE NAVY ENOUGH) IT WAS A GOOD TRIP WHILE I WAS THERE BUT MY TIME AND RATE TOLD ME I HAD TO GO! BEE'S BELONG ON THE GROUND NOT IN THE AIR! I WAS MCM SIDE OF THE HOUSE DOING THE GREASE MONKEY WORK FOR THE UNGREATFUL SKIPPER. ALWAYS AFTER THE SEABEES FOR SOME REASON. :) OH WELL I GUESS THATS WHAT WE GET FOR HAVING NOTHING BUT A GOOD TIME NO MATTER WHERE WE WENT.

10-13-2006, 21:44
You're kidding me? You mean after leaving Norfolk in '87 or '88 and going to Alameda, then moving to Corpus Christi, they are going to end up right back in Norfolk again? Well I guess that was a big 18 year waste of money LOL. WE shared a hangar with HM-14...Wonder if they're still in the same spot? They ought to make them change their name back to "Seahawks"....Never did understand a Squadron being called the "Blackhawks" when they weren't flying Blackhawks LOL.

Kilost, I was also attached to the MCM side (Mine Countermeasures for those who don't know what the hell we're talking about)but most of the time I was TAD to AIMD doing the electrical Intermediate maintainance on both "Fish". When we were out on a cruise or a detachment I also flew sometimes as an in air troubleshooter.

Like I said, I enjoyed working with the SeaBee's in our squadron. Always thought it was an odd place for a Seabee to be attached to though.....You're lucky you were able to get out. Usually because there were so few HM squads, once you got into it it was hard to get out. They didn't like to let go of you once they had you trained.

Ever checked this site out? Lots of nice AMCM and HM Squadron info, including some e-mail contact list for former members.

MCM was a good time went on alot of DETS with the "Kickin Chickens" (lil inside joke about the bus we repainted,Probably the same bus yall had!) Shoot man most of the DETS we were so hung over we'ed beg to go help the AIMD guys cause they were the only guys with Air Conditioning. You know any time the Squadron went any where the MCM cats were the ones that had the pleasure to get there first(just to set everything up), we had to do some thing to make up for being the workhorse.

That is the game plan from what I was told, NORFOLK yeah! They bounce around those guys over there more than an unwanted baby on prom night. I think they are even planning to go back to the same hangars too.


I still talk to some of the guys from there most are gone though. They all went to Virginia on orders thinking they would get AWAY. HA,HA,HA! And that's what makes me laugh! They went so far just to have it back in their face.

No, the supply dept head did not allow me to move from supply even though I struck for ET and Corpsman with the 3&4 courses completed. So I stayed in supply if the dept head gave me another A school. I went from E-3 ET to E-3 SK. Then eventually got E4 SK (storekeeper)

Alot of weird stuff was going on. The Biddle was stationed in Norfolk, VA. We received orders to go to Viet Nam in three days. About 20 of the crew went to Canada, most of the gunnermates left also.

PE, yes. The recruiter screwed me out of OT (Ocean System Tech), which is what I was studying at Oregon State. I dropped out of OSU, then got drafted (lottery)and signed up for the Navy. I did not have time to wait for the OT so I went for the PE, which had an aggrement to extend two years once completing A school at Dam Neck. I played stupid and it took them two months to send me to fleet. There I struck for ET and then Corpsman, but each time the supply dept head would not allow me to continue on the ****. The xo and captain followed suit. It took me all most of the time in VN to do the courses, which at that time, I was on the mess decks 9.5 months. WOW is not the word for it.

I was going to ship my 4X4 up there and I could shoot all I wanted off duty. I wasn't married, and IIRC you could hunt the caribou there too.

OTASAN, Yes, the Noa fished John Glenn out of the drink in 60 or 61. I got off of it in 59. The Noa was a Gearing class destroyer, probably the last of the purely floating gun platforms. She carried no missiles of any kind (in the modern sence of what we call a "missile"). She was eventually given to Spain where she served their Navy under a different name, and eventually scrapped out.
She was very sea-worthy. I was on the helm during some heavy weather and saw the inclinometer swing to 53 degrees. The C.O., Commander Abercrombie skidded accros the bridge on one foot hollering "one hand for the ship boys, and one for yourselves, here we go!" I guess he didn't expect for the ship to right itself.
We used to brag that we had more sea miles backing down than most sailors had going forward! (no flames please.....that was 50 years ago).

OTASAN, the name "Vogelgesang" is familiar. I'm nearly sure we operated with her in the Med. We did a three month Med. cruise in 58 and a seven month cruise in 59.....two round trips through the Suez, Red Sea, Persian Gulf, Tigras-Euphraties river to Basra, down to Bombay. Probably every major port in the Med. Cruised a fair bit in the Caribbean during slack time. (humor) Was to Guantanamo City and Havana a couple months before Fidel took over. A lot of Batisita's army and police patroling the streets at the time. Didn't care....bought a fifth of "something" with a Dominican Republic silver dollar....got snokered!

Were you part of the Cuban Quarantine? That was high drama for sure.

Vogelgesang is German for "bird song".

OTASAN, you do make me feel like an old man...I was married and had I think two kids at the time of the CMC...short answer, no, I was out by then. When the Marines went ashore in Beirut in 58 I think, we were patrolling in the gulf of aquaba hoping our presence would keep the Jews and Arabs from fireing on one another (some of us were half hoping they would toss one at us so we could get in on the action. (ah well....young and foolish.....but we felt all dressed up with no place to go......would you believe us guys on the deck force and gun gang spent a lot of time sitting around and shapening our knives out of frustration?)

I was a projectileman in MT 51 on DD862 a few times in 1978-80. My gun captain was the late Reginald Ziegler, the GMGCS who bought the farm in the BB61 Turret No. 2 disaster in 1989.

Did the Noa still have those great old 3"50-cal twin open mounts, or did you have 40mm's?

My fun and games was the Vietnam Evac on 29-30Apr75, the biggest amphib evac since Dunkirk. I was on DD-782 plainguarding the Midway CV41. Going on 32 years ago!

OB1
02-04-2007, 11:47
OTASAN..Yes, a single 3"50 port and starbord aft of the pilot house and two twin 3"50's on the O1 deck aft of the gun director and after stack, all four were open mounts, plus of course three twin 5"38's.
Those 3" guns had quite a bark! My GQ station was trainer in mount 52.
I wonder, was that blow-up in mount 2 (BB61)ever "repaired", did that gun ever fire again?
OB1

There's a story about a white boy brought up by a Japanese family who became fluent in that language. He was fount painting Jap writing on the roof of mt.52 on his DD and was asked "what the h--- he thought he was doing?" He said it it was a note to kamakazis saying; "is only insignificant destroyer, press onward to find glorious carrier."

The WestPac tin cans could've used those 3"50's during the WWII kamikaze attacks. The 40s were a bit on the light side.

The BB61 No. 2 turret was not repaired, and the ship is in mothballs now.

I saw it again in San Diego in 1977-ish. What a great ship!

When I made Chief, I was informed that my sea-shore rotation was to be reset and I was looking at a minimum of another 4 years of sea duty... I had kids entering high school and I decided "family" was more important than the promotion...

Until then, I never regretted a single moment in the Navy...I left disappointed, but the first couple of civilian paychecks changed that attitude right away!! Been doing VERY well ever since!

I was on track for chief when I was told I was not going to be allowed to re-enlist due to my left shoulder. I had separated the labrum three times and had it repaired three times. So I was deemed unfit for continued service due to my shoulder and at my EAOS I was honorably discharged. So if it hadn't been for my left shoulder being torn to hell, I would have retired last year.

The shoulder was injured when I caught a tool box before is killed a shipmate. Fair trade the way I see it, a career for a life.

Greeting to all

I joined the U.S. Navy in 1948 and left the service in 1954.

My specialty changed in 1950 when I was assigned to a billet in Naval Aviation. After training, I became an air crewman.

During the Korean War I served in Patrol Squadrons VP-871 and VP-19.

VP-871 patrolled using PB4Y2 Privateer Aircraft. VP-19 patrolled using P2V Neptune Aircraft.

The mission of VP-871 was reconnaissance, protecting the fleet and supporting U.S. Marine ground forces in Korea.

The mission of VP-19 was reconnaissance and anti-submarine warfare in the Pacific.

Corpsman up! I wonder how much things changed between your time at NHCS vs mine? :wavey:

Prob not much at all. Back when I was in we didn't have the automatic IV infusion machines and medications were pretty much in larger universal dosages.

Nowadays, IV infusers are all automated, so when the doctor orders 73 drops per min all you have to do is dial it in, back in my day, we actually had to sit and figure it out mathmatically and medications these days are usually issued in dosages ordered for example the MD orders 5mg Valium, in my day Valium came in 10mg and up.

Dosage calculations are still the same lol, that will never change. Dosage Ordered over Dosage on hand times quantity ordered.

DO
--- x Q = dosage given
DOA

I'm sure FMF training has changed, with added improvements, better field medical techniques, medications, faster access to evac helo's.

When I went through NHCS our time was spent about 50% in classrooms, 40% Field/Clinical training, 5% drilling/physical fitness and 5% unexpected on the spot testing and at the end we took two exams, the one that scored us on all we learned during our time there followed by a practical testing exam, and number 2 was national EMT-P training certification, and at graduation before our diploma's, emt-p patches and orders were handed out we took the hippocratic oath. From what I've heard over the years though, the oath has since been removed, but I'm not sure on that.

I've been waiting for years for them to put up a NHCS website.
