Re: Where are they now?

Just to keep a great thread going ... I've seen a number of names from my past while few of you will remember me (being a RM2 at Pt. Sur and San Nicolas 1973-1975)

These days I am the Director of Operations at a worldwide air charter company in Southern California. We operate an eight ship fleet catering mostly to the Hollywood types. I am captain/check airman qualified in the Gulfstream IV, V and G550.

My wife Michelle, 2 sons and a very large cat live just north of the San Fernando Valley (burning today, again).

If you're around SoCal, dial me up via email (stuschrock@sbcglobal.net) ... diner's on me ... I love to share memories with my old shipmates from a most formative time in my life.


Re: Where are they now?

I was stationed at SNI from December 1973 through July 1975.

At the time I started my OWO was Lt.jg. J.A. Tompkins. OT2 Mike Legan was my supervisor and we had Kenny Leighton, Robert "Buster" Graham, and Mike Card in our section. I remember OT3 Pat Wheaton, WO Stony Stoneking, RM Conrad Jackman, Phil Jarvis, Ens. Cyndi Paul, LCdr Woody Woodford (Woodward?), RM Chico Lopez, and a few others.

I was at SNI as an OT. Robert "Bob" Rose.

When I was transferred from SNI, I traveled to NavFac Barbers Point, Hi. I was there from July 1975 through June 1977. Mustered out as an OT2. My section included OT's Melanie Johnson, Corky Nelson, and my memory fails me, there was a husband and wife team as readers. Anthony Duplessis of New Orleans was our Radioman. Our watch officers kept changing and I just can't recal them. I know Margaret Wheaton was there for a while.

Re: Where are they now - OTA2 Robert "Zeke" Velez


Gotta love teh INTERNETZ! Just found this site, so I thought I'd put my thing down . . .

Got married in Hawaii in 1993 while stationed at CUSP. Left the service June of that year. Moved to Minnesota in January 1994.

I have three kids; one of whom recently graduated from Marine bootcamp (Courtney, 21), and two of whom live in Chicago, IL with their Mom. I live in Saint Paul, MN and will be graduating with a degree in social science this December just shy of my 40th birthday.

I work for Hennepin County Human Services in the Child Support Division; making sure that court ordered child support gets to kids. I will be applying for several political science PhD programs this fall and hope to be admitted for Fall 2010 admission.

You can find me on facebook as well!
