Re: Back on Adak Dream

I used to have dreams about being late getting a position out when I was in a watch section up there. Although, I spent half my time in QA with Robin Hood and Bob Wisdom, which gave me nightmares of another kind. ;) Also had the pleasure of standing 3 section duty with Gary Peterson for 3 weeks, resulting in even more bad dreams. Now that I think about it, I should have claimed PTSD because of that tour when I retired. All kidding aside, I’d love to go back up there to see the place again, but I’m afraid it would just depress me. Seems like all of my AD (sea and shore) commands have been decommissioned except for CUS and NOPF Dam Neck (not sure what it’s called now).

Re: Back on Adak Dream

I left Adak in late 1981 and remember well the three you mentioned. Robin, Bob and I were at Kef together and I learned so much from them. Gary Peterson was really great and always had a positive attitude. Unfortunately both he and Bob are no longer with us.

It's really depressing to see Adak now. The buildings are in a sad state and nothing is really happening there. That's too bad as it was a great duty station.
