Memories For This Unit

Best Moment
It was while stationed here that I met my first wife Ruth while on leave visiting my brother Danny. We would later be married for 33 years until her passing in November of 2015. 

Other Memories
I was assigned here as an Intermediate Level Armamcnt MaintenanceTechnician.  But before I arrived, I was traded off to Station Weapons.  Here I served as a Stock Control Petty Officer for the first year, and then as the Magazines Supervisor for the second year.
