I like the images of my old ship GW. I served onboard her from 1991-1995. When I arrived she was still a Pre-commissioning Unit at Newport News Shipbuilding. I was their at the commissioning on July 4, 1992 at Norfolk Naval Station and made the maiden deployment in 1994. We went to Normandy for the 50th anniversary of D-Day and met many of the WW II vets who landed in 1944. Was a member of the Honor Guard near the President's podium and witnessed President Clinton's speech on the hangar deck. I would like to see GW again and go onboard. I last crossed the quarterdeck in 1995 on the day of my discharge.

I was working in Brisbane and staying at the Ibis hotel. Met some of the lovely sailors there, and would like to keep in contact if they want. Only know their first names, Josh from Tennessee, divorced with a son. Jamie from Hawaii, married with 3 children, and Randy. I am happy to be contacted by them.
