On the Spirit Cuise from downtown we passed the Norfolk Naval Base. This view is of NOB, main base where the big boys were parked. The base has changed quite a bit in 40 years but many buildings are recognizable. NAS Oceana, NOB and D&S Piers were separated but are now all connected as one big base. Only two carriers were in port at this time.
I have more to add and 2 or 3 more pages t make for the 2004 reunion. Please keep looking in to see what has been added and look for old friends. It would be good to see many more of New's old sailors attend these reunions. This was my first for New and surely won't be the last. Ya'll come.
On Saturday we had a tour of Williamsburg and Yorktown. Here are a few views taken.
