I've been trying to track down a friend that I have lost touch with. His name is Brian Hill. He was a career Navy man. He was a meteorologist. When I met him in the early 1990's he was stationed in Long Beach, CA. After that he was a Senior Chief on the USS Abraham Lincoln. He then was stationed in Alameda CA for a time. He was also in Newport Rhode Island for a short time. At the time we lost contact he was stationed in Honolulu Hawaii. One other thing I remember about Brian Hill is that he was stationed in the Philippines before we met, probably in the 1980's.

Oh, he also grew up in Oregon. A town near the coast. Coos Bay, I think.

Any guidance in locating him would be much appreciated.


Would like to contact an old shipmate of mine— AG1 Lee Heicher. We were stated together in the mid to late 1970’s at NWSED/NOCD Washington (wx det was located at Andrews AFB). I believe he transferred to IceRecon at FWF Suitland from there. Mid 1980’s he was stationed at NOCD South Weymouth. Might have done a tour with one of the CV’s out of Jacksonville, FL after Ice Recon. If you know his whereabouts contact me via Facebook messages.

I am a retired Naval Officer; my first duty station was as the
Communications Officer at the FWC/JTWC Guam. I have collected
ship or station patches from all my duty stations. I am wondering
if there was a patch for FWC/JTWC Guam during the time I served 
there 1959-1961? If so would I be able to purchase that patch?
Thank you


Hi, just ran into your site and wondered if you have two buddy's listed on  your roster,

We were in A school together in Lakehurst, class of 5841, and did I really get a kick out of seeing our class picture posted on your site,, 

Thanks, and Merry Christmas, Ron Call, AG2 (long agooo
