Anyone from A-97 Alameda? I arrived at Alameda on June 28, 1974. Was originally assigned to (I think) K-96 but was put on dental hold for a week. Graduated in September, then: NMC at Pt. Reyes, CA. ETA school at TRACEN NY. USCGC Modoc, Coos Bay, OR.
I was more then ready to get out after 4 years but look back on the experience fondly (for the most part...).
