Greetings to all USS Fort Snelling LSD-30 Crewmembers and families:
I want to get in touch with as many of my shipmates as possible! Please send me an email and I'll get the ball rolling. This period of our lives, believe it or not, molded who we are today...somewhat!
I ran the ship's store, geedunk,and inventory for over two years. So if you served on the Fort between 1972 and 1975 you know me! If you purchased cigs for 1.25 a carton, you looked me in the eyes.
Let's get acquainted again, it's not too late. My crew was Kevin Gibson, Bobby Whitehead, and Bo Bonds. Bo received an early discharge due to an unknown illness.
Come on Henry, Stevie, Joe, you guys are out there. Email me and I'll make sure we all get in touch! firstname.lastname@example.org
