If I could go back, I'd likely still be in (though as an SK now, due to the merger) and would likely be looking for Amphib ships to tour with. Was a great training opportunity!!!
Most of my 22 year career has been with the Amphib Navy. Did tours on the BOXER and Belleau Wood. Shorter stints on the Germantown, Fort McHenry, Dubuque, Cleveland, and even the old, defunct San Bernardino. My last tour was instructing at NAS North Island. We did Mission Planning and I was the Amphib SME.

On a side note; My SK1 just retired this past year and he was not only a Shipmate, but one of the many that I call a close, personal friend. He always "acquired" the last minute items that we needed to accomplish a mission. What a guy!

How many of those ships have been decommed? I recognize so few of them...then again, I was an East Coast guy...and was only in for 4 years.

The SKs and the Marines loved having me around...because I knew where pretty much everything was on the ship...had contacts in nearly every shop that I could call on in a pinch...and was great at pulling off a myriad of "hookups" to ensure everybody got what they wanted (and of course...I came out ahead.)

It's good to be a Logistician!

San Bernardino was an old LST...gone. Belleau Wood was an LHA and was sunk a couple of years ago off of Hawaii as an artificial reef...gone. Cleveland and Dubuque are LPD's and will be gone soon. Ft Mc and G-Town are LSD's and are still hanging around. I did my very first tour on the Blue Ridge (LCC 19) which is an Amphib Command Ship. I also did a few years on a Mobile Team out of Naval Station Subic Bay, which is also......gone! LOL! I guess I am showing my age.
