Name: DSC Ron Hawtree|
From: San Diego, CA
Comments: Ahoy, Master Chief! What a terrific site! I tried out for the boats in 1970, but couldn't pass eye exam, so opted for Data Systems pipeline instead. Left Mare Island early 1971 and served aboard USS England (DLG-22) until Jan 1977. Did four years at FCTCP SD as LPO for NTDS Maintenance Shop, then back to sea on USS Fox (CG-33) from April 1980 to March 1984. Put on "The Hat" Sep 1982 in a very moving but still somewhat hazy ceremony at the Senior Enlistedmen's Club at HMAS Sterling, Western Australia. Poor Aussies are probably still wondering what the hell all that was about! Left Fox for MOTU-5 SD in 1984 and spent 4 years there as a travelling technician (most rewarding tour of my career). Finished up with 2 years aboard USS Gridley (CG-21). Yeah, I guess you could say I had a soft spot for the cruisers...Now I work for a DoD contractor as a mechanical designer and spend part of my job doing installs and tear-outs of JTIDS systems on the boats. To all old shipmates out there: Love to hear from most of you (Hey, you can't get along with everyone, y'know...). I spent half my adult life as a "Cold Warrior" training to fight Russians at sea. I miss the places I went and a lot of the shipmates with whom I served.
