    I would but I don't have a facebook account. I deactivated it. I'm on google+ now. Sorry. If you have one look me up. It's Al Fitzgerald.
    Also Chuck Johnson is on facebook plus Marine Barracks just had a reunion in San Diego but I wasn't able to go.
    Last I knew Dougy fresh only lives like 20 minutes away from me. Haven't seen him in several years though.

    God that brought back tons of memories. We stayed there in between when our ships were dry docked and did P.T. all the time with Fast Company. I actually almost did a re-enlistment package because fast company wanted me thanks to my 1st Sgt in the Mar-Det but I didn't want to spend my entire enlistment in Virginia since it's where I grew up. I had the California fever. Looking back on it I wish I would have wen't to Fast. That was a neat cozy little station and about an hour and a half from my hometown. What did they do knock it down and rebuild it?

    hahaha one of you said very good "pitchers"...you mean "pictures"...you must have been thinking of the awesome little "MARBAR" out back just above the old BARBER SHOP...that little separate building in the front was an awesome little weight room also...worked out there plenty.

    First duty station out of boot camp.

    Norfolk Naval Correctional Facility, Marine Barracks Norfolk.
    Dec 75 to 77, brig went to the Navy
    Then I waved gates till I left in 78.
    Mos was dropped and I was put in the Chemical Corp as an NBC Specialist.
    Does any one remember a Cpt. Chuck Armstrong? I think back then he had pull up record of 125 with out dropping off.

    Stationed there in 1954 after return from Korea. Duty as Sgt, of the Guard. Had some real dust-ups with drunk swabbies coming back off liberty in Nfolk. Went from there to embassy duty in Germany. I remember Captain Dorsa, a real fine officer and gentleman.

    Smile MARBKS, Norfolk

    As the sergeant of the guard, I used to take my post at the main gate, where the action was. One of my best Marines on duty was a cook who volunteered to help at the main gate. His specialty was kicking the **** of sailors

    Gate 2 was the gate to be on. Many of memories of action out there. Never boring. Haven't been there in about 25 years so not sure who does the guard duty now.
