Down loaded the Gunners book, and after 150 pages am satisfied. You could not get the volume of info for the price of 2 mixed drinks. Which is about what the book cost to down load.

Greetings Keepers of the Dragon;

After 12 years my book "Brotherhood of Doom: Memoirs of a Navy Nuclear Weaponsman" has finally been published. One entry in our guestbook tells of the Ticonderoga accident. I was a eye witness, and have it in my book. Many of you are in the book (some name changes). The book is 8 1/2" x 11", contains 436 pages, published by BookLocker for $23.95 paperback, $11.95 for e-book, at:

http://www.booklocker.com/books/3222.html

It has Ray Margeson's picture in it! I plan on bringing a few of the books to the 2008 reunion. I wrote it mainly to honor the many outstanding Keepers of the Dragon I knew over my 30-year career, and to document the important work we did for our country.

Served from 1960 to 1991, ended as CWO4. This has been a sad year losing my old shipmate Ray Steele. I'm still looking for GMTCM John Munson. If anyone has a clue where he might be, let me know. My book Brotherhood of Doom: memoirs of a Navy Nuclear Weaponsman is being published by BookLocker, and should be on their website in about two weeks (http://www.booklocker.com/). It's taken 12 years to write, and looks somewhat like a phonebook (8 x 11, 432 pages). Those that gave permission have their name in it. It was an honor to be part of the "Brotherhood of Doom". Great job Ray cleaning up our website!

For all those who served at NAD Waikele, I am gathering historical information on the area for the owners of the Waikele Self Storage facility which uses all the old special weapons magazines. I have extensive photograph s of the area. Most of the remaining buildings in the area were heavily vandalized during the years Waikele was closed, but much remains. The housing area is gone.

Nice to see lots of names of former shipmates listed.

I retired with 28 years total service in May '97 from COMOMAG, NAS Corpus Christi. Worked for a contractor assigned to NAVSEA at Naval Station Ingleside for a couple of years - till the Navy money ran out. The company was great, they helped pay for my college degree along with the G.I. Bill. Had two more jobs that I didn't care for, so I quit all together.

I now live (very comfortably) in McGregor TX (just 15 miles from Bush's ranch in Crawford. Stay busy working on guns and my 1951 MG-TD.

Hello to All,

Enjoyed the trip back through time. I still remember the day we drew and painted the patch emblem on IKE's Aft Sass Magazine door back in 1980 I believe, lol....like I was still standing there. And I think I can even picture Chief Margeson in the mud during our weekly mud football games on Guam (forgive me if my memory is off, though). Ralph

I found your website on goatlocker. I was selected for the PRP program way back in 1984 and, at the time had no idea what it involved. Being an AQAN on the USS Midway I thought it was an inconvenience to say the least along with a few other words I won't mention. Now, I consider it an honor to have served in this capacity many years later.

If someone could please let me know if that makes me eligible to become a member of your fine organization, please let me know.

Boot Camp in San Diego, Great Lakes, and Sandia "A" School all in 1967. On December 17, 1967, I checked on the USS Hancock CVA-19 at the Hunters Point Ship Yards. I checked off of the USS Hancock CVA-19 on March 1, 1971. I flew home from the PI on March 3, 1971 and left the Navy at 10:30 hours on March 8, 1971. Thirty-four years later, I still have a party. I received an AS degree in Fire Science from Santa Barbara City College in Fire Science and went back to work for the navy as a civilian fire fighter at Imperial Beach and North Island. I left the fire service and received my bachelors and master degree from San Jose State University in 1981. I moved to Boise, Idaho with high hopes only to be widowed in child birth and deal with a son with cerebral palsy. I have returned to California and have been working in the health field for the last twenty years. My claim to fame is that I made amends to Asia by helping start the first Chinese Language meeting of Alcoholics Anonymous in the Pe

I went to GMT "A" School in Albuquerque in 1964 and then to the USS Dixie (AD-14). I was only on the Dixie about 6 months and was transferred to NAS Guam, Weapons Division. I also went to Weapons Technical Monitor School at Cubi Point, PI. I volunteered to go to the Naval Advisory Group (Junk Force), DaNang, to get off Guam and eventually ended up in River Patrol Boats. I got out, went into the Reserves, got fed up with the Reserves and got out completely for 12 years.

In 1981, I moved to the SF Bay area and rejoined the Reserves with Special Boat Unit XI at Mare Island. I am still with Special Boats, now called Teams. I was recalled for the first Gulf War and again for OIF, in March of '03. I am due to be released in April '05 unless we are extended another year. I am now the Operations LCPO at Special Boat Team 22 in Stennis, MS and spend about ¾ of my time in Central and South America.

Served at Marine Barracks Waikele, Oahu Hawaii. 1967-1968

Like Mike Wise I walked all the posts, or stood tower duty... even ran the tunnels when the Plt Sgt got pissed at me.. turning on all the tunnel lights...

seems to me there were about one hundred lights and if not one hundred, it seemed like more..

Seems strange so many folks were at Waikele since the place only had maybe

a total of 60 or so Marines and 20 or less Sailors on base....

Must have been pretty important, Any one have ideas?
