Comments: I served in 62 from Jan. 79 until Oct 82. I made deployments on Rota w Sigonella Det, then to Gitmo for Roosy Rds, finally had to go with the main body to Diego Garcia for the final deployment. Wow saw some pictures that almost made that place look civilized now. Looking for old buddies that I served with.
