WHAT EVER HAPPENED TO.......
This is a new page that I am starting and thought you might enjoy.  I know I have often asked the question "What ever happened to ...." many times and I'm sure you have to.  I will start out with my own to use as a guide.  If you would like to add to this page send it to me by snail mail or email.

I was advanced to RMC(SS) at USNTC, SSC,  in June 1969.  I stayed in the Charlestonm SC area for a  few months after I retired in January 1976 trying to figure out what I was going to do with the rest of my life.  I soon accepted an offer from Data-Design Laboratories in Arlington, VA and moved to Woodbridge, VA in September 1976.  I started out working on the development of the Index of Technical Publications for the SSN688 Class of submarines on a contract with Naval Sea Systems Command.  For the next twenty plus years I was involved in the development of various Navy Training Plans, Integrated Logistic Support Plans, Index of Technical Publications, and ILS certification for the Trident Training Facility, Kings Bay, GA.  Although I worked for various contractors over the years supporting NAVSEA and SPAWAR on submarine communications contracts I supported Mr. Carl Haines in SEA 92L and his staff for the last thirteen years.  I feel extremely proud to have supported the submarine service on both active duty and as a civilian for more than thirty four years of my life.  As the saying goes, once a submariner, always a submariner.

I retired for good on 1 April 1999.  My wife Louise, and I, had a new home builit in the Shenandoah Valley, about five miles west of Woodstock, VA, and we moved in on 22 November 2000.  What a way to go.
