Bill - If you were stationed on a CVS (which one?), I think you were a couple of years ahead of me. I did several TAD assignements onboard SSN683 in the late '80's and two full years (68-70) onboard CLG5 with C7FLT staff. Spent 25 years in uniform with the NavSecGru and then an additional 18 years as a civilian with ONI. Many trips to the New London/Groton area over the years to support the SSN's (ComSubGru2) and to King's Bay, GA and Silverdale, WA to support the "Boomers" (SSBN's). Also worked with ASW guys flying out of NAS Jax, Bermuda (nice!), Brunswick, and Keflavik, etc. So, I worked "both sides of the problem".
AWED - Many good memories working with "Coasties" on counter-drug ops in Key West, Governor's Island, and Alameda. Even designed/built a communications facility for the CG in West Virginia (who knew?)! It was always a pleasure working with the "Coasties" - all 10 of them! I even got to ride on a couple of their "yachts" - Oops, I mean "Cutters"!
"Fair winds", Gentlemen.
