I am looking for anyone who knows where we can get in touch with Sr Chief Harding. He came on board in 1991 during Desert Storm, he flew with my husband and another shipmate to Bahrain in February 91 and this information is not documented in the service records of Steve and the other shipmate. Sr Chief could be the missing link. Would like to know if he is sick with anything unusual. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Email above or call me at 937-615-1131. If you know anyone else who is sick with an organic brain disease, cancer or other unusual illness I would love to talk with you.

During Desert Storm I was married to OS1 Iain Campbell, OI Division Virginia. I fought congress for your medals and money. I can tell you what medals you are suppose to have, but unfortunately you did not get the money due because I was told to shut up or they would bust Iain out of the Navy by the captain. With four kids, one of which was very sick, I could not risk that. You deserved it all and I would fight again in a heartbeat!

Anyone remember who flew to Sicily and on to Bahrain in January 91 to catch the ship? Steve says the ship secretary and one other person flew with him on a plane with munitions that had to be emergency landed. We need some more information about that trip and Steve doesn't have the memory any more. Any help would be greatly appreciated. This was a time when the ship was suppose to go to the gulf and couldn't because of a nuke inspection failure of some sort. Please get in contact with me if you have any information at all at: 937-615-1131. Blessings!

ET1 Steve Mullikin, my husband of 9 years served 91-93. Would like to know if anyone is sick with Multiple Sclerosis or a demylinating disease of any kind? Also, spouse, child with auto immune disease? Steve has been sick since 93 with a disease no one can diagnose. It is making life near impossible for us and he is unable to work any longer. Would love to talk to you about any medical issues.

I served from 1978-1981. Fun reading back through all the past messages. I saw one post that took credit for blowing the starboard door off in a gun shoot. That was legend even up until I left. Right up there along with our crew dropping a bird in the magazine. The sea stories section also bring back memories especially the one about our sonar dome damage. Amazing how all the details were kept from us. But the Philipines was the greatest port visit we ever had due to that event. But that was after the horrible stay in oman. Hello to the guys I hung around most with... Marty C., Craig W. & Larry K. Capt. Ailes made flag rank? You kidding me? I never would have thought it possible considering some of the mishaps.

SM3 Serrano here. I was in deck div 85-88 then went signalman and retired as a SM1. Hello To all you prior, during, and after my service in my first ship. Without a doubt this vessel has left a permanent scar in each one of us and I dont think there will ever be a ship with the "AURA" of CGN-38. Would like to get in touch with as many crew members specially those from 1985-1989 and if anyone knows when the next reunion is going to be please advise me. Thank you

Like the others who served with Brian Mclaughlin I would like to express my sadness at learning of his passing. Brian was a great shipmate and true friend. Brian and I were usually in the same watch section and spent many hours together in DC Central playing cards, reading books, shootin the shit, and all the other things you aint supposed to do on watch in DC Central. One thing I remember about Brian was his great sense of humor. He was always playing practical jokes on his shipmates. I remember one time that another shipmate was sleeping in the r div lounge and Brian put cheeze wiz on two ritz crackers and stuck them to the poor fellows eye glasses. What a hoot Brian was. I will never forget him.

Still alive and well! Never forget 3 inches of water in cc#2 because the forward hatch wasn't water tight, and we caught a storm off the VACAPES! No sleep that night. Troy Rose busted his chin open when he got tossed out of his rack, and medical could not stitch it shut.Homer Harper got tossed out of his rack, and his feet hit Skinner in the face on the way down.

shipmates, a few days ago i received this letter dated 11 october 2005 by postal mail from the uss virginia association i had to edit out some due to length limitations:
it is with great sadness that we report that the uss virginia association may cease to exist beyond 28 february 2006 unless someone steps up to assume the watch.
it is time to "change the watch" to a couple of willing shipmates that can keep the association underway.
uss virginia association will be decommissioned on 28 february 2006.
if anyone is interested in assuming the watch please contact dave or doug at post office box 6251, norfolk va 23508

It is also with great sadness that I mark the passing of a dear true friend. Brian, Jim and I, along with the rest of the R-Division gang spent so many wonderful times aboard this great ship along with the many adventures ashore.

I too lost touch with Brian but had eagerly anticipated the day that we all could reunite.

Today I learned of and suffered the loss of a great friend.

Sail on Brain forever and may GOD rest you into his arms.
This world now seems more empty knowing youíre gone.

In the highest traditions of The U.S. Navy,
The U.S.S. Virginia, and In Honor of a great man and a sailorís sailor.

HT2 Brian Mclaughlin

We will miss you forever my friend.

It is with great sadness that I am making this post. I just want to let all of you know that I recentlty became aware that a great shipmate and friend, HT2 Brian Mclaughlin who served in R_Div from 1980 - 1984 passed away. Actually after many attmepts of trying to locate Brian over the past few years I made contact with his family. His 16 year old daughter wrote to tell me that he passed away 6 years ago. I last spoke with him around the late 80's when he was stationed in Pearl Harbor. This news came as a complete shock to me as it has to some others I have personally e-mailed. We will all remember him and the great times we had together. "God Bless You Brian, Rest in Peace. Thanks for always being there for me when I needed a friend.My only regret is we lost touch and never made contact again"

I own a retail computer store as well as an electronics smoke and water restoration business. My Navy job experience was next to worthless, the discipline and friendships formed on the Virginia are very direct contributors to my successes in life. I very much appreciated knowing each of you.

Rose to the mighty rank of MM2 in M2 division between '77 and '83. After that I wasn't recommended for advancement or reenlistment. (That is until I told them I was leaving.) I vowed then that I had had enough fun working for others and set out on my own. Glad I did and glad those guys pushed me like they did back then. Otherwise I'd probably be doing some meaningless job collecting a paycheck and waiting for retirement.

Thanks Klinedog, Bergie, Wachy and all you other guys who thought I was pretty irresponsible insubordinate. You were right and I'd like to apologize now!!!!

A proud memeber of the crew of the U.S.S. Virginia! GMM2 on the forward launcher 1/1981 to 6/1984. It's been great to read so many stories about the ol' girl. Sure do miss her! We experienced so much during those years. I could tell you stories! It hurt to see the demo pictures. I have a question, who or when did they start calling her the "Pig"? All of my fellow shipmates would like to know. It sounds like her reputation went downhill after we left.

Hello everyone, how are things going. I just happened to stumble across this site and wish I had known about it sooner. It is a shame that the Virginia that I know is no longer with us. I have lots of great memories of the fun we had and the people I got to know. I served on the Virginia from 1987 to 1989 and was on both the 87 and 89 Med Cruises. Can't beat the fake fantail fire, moon ship day, and some of the other interesting times. I was assigned to Deck Division for the first year then made it out to Navigation for the remainder of my time on the ship. I am know working in Wilmington, DE as a police officer and have been doing that for the last 11 years. This is an awesome site and hope to hear from some of my fellow shipmates so we can keep in touch.

GMM2 (Aft Launcher Captain) served 1981-1985 during which time the Virginia opened fire in Beirut, Lebanon and some of us went ashore after the Beirut Hilton bombing to help recover the bodies of the Marines. I had a memorial airbrushed onto my Harley remembering the fallen, which made it into Easyriders magazine. Left the ship just before it completed overhaul, and went into the aerospace industry before switching to law enforcement. Am now the Disciplinary Officer at Maine's SuperMax state prison. I have remained in contact with GMM2 Art Wall and GMG2 Gary Freeburg all these years later. They told me about this site today when we all met in Gloucester, Massachusetts for a deep sea fishing charter. Put me on a mailing list for any reunion plans !!

Great to see so many familiar names. I was EMO from 86-90. What a great ship. Anyone remember ETC Putz? Best chief I ever worked with. I still see folks from those great days. Ralph Janikowski, the Cheng, is a CAPT and works in the Pentagon for OPNAV. Saw Dan Weed recently, also a Captain. Eric Moss is still around, also a Captain.

Getting ready to retire next month. After 31 years and six ships, Virginia is remembered as the absolute best.

I am looking for DeShazo, he was a BM who I convinced to reenlist. Wonder what ever happened to him.

Would anyone have a line on a Ship Identification Mark? The rocker used on the sleeve of the enlisted uniform. It would mean so much if I could include one in my shadow box.

Great web site.

Probably one of the most enriching tours I had. On board from 91 to decom in RC Div. Seems like RC Div was continuously repairing equipment to keep the plants up. Can't say that I miss the time we spent at sea (seems like we were never home) but I do miss the people. Even the mechanics who turned my recently acquired anchors upside down just prior to me having to talk to the CO about another RC equipment problem. Should have never left my shirt unattended. Needless to say, I checked it everytime after that!

Look back at my Navy days and don't know why I complained about anything, compared to the army it was a pleasure cruiser. Joined the national guard after a break in service and hence here I am.

I just noticed an entry from James A. Arnold, posted on this log in 1992. Like me he was a plankowner in OD (deck) Div. in 1976. One of our hilarious and rebellious "colleagues," Dirk Lutzweiler, made it a habit to always say the same thing whenever he saw Arnold: "Arnold J. Lover... Always has a hard on." I suppose it was because we all knew that Arnold, unlike the rest of us, had a bona fide girlfriend living nearby. Made no sense then, makes none now. Still cracks me up.

Does anyone remember the name of the two-foot-tall, Jewish lieutenant who served on the Virginia in those days? I always had the impression that his primary goal in life was to prove to the world that he wasn't simply a one-dimensional cartoon character. No offense intended, of course.

Drop me a line I would love to hear from all my shipmates especially Admiral Davis as my first skipper you had a very big impact on me which is probably one of the reasons I stayed in the Navy for 24 years retiring at the rank of CWO3.

MSCM(SS/SW) Rusty Malbon (Command Master Chief prior to "Hoots" Mamanus) died on 20 November 2004 after a four year fight with cancer. Master Chief Malbon had the fondest memories of the Virginia crew as I am sure that all who knew and served with him will remember him with their fondest memories.

Iwas onboard from '92 to the end. Sad to see the picture of her now. When I left, the superstructure was down to the 01 level. It still seems ironic that the last drug bust was the MV Virginia. I'm glad that I was in the CS office during the deactivation ceremony, what with as cold as it was outside. If anyone remembers that beard growing contest during the last cruise, I won for the grayest, in spite of some tough competion.

I served on board the Virginia from 77-81, did many a shake down cruise, the first med cruise for her, north atlantic, an IO cruise and various cruises to the caribbean. served under both Capt Davis and Ailes. She was a fine lady in her prime, I am saddened to see her life was so short. would like to hear from some of my other shipmates, haven't kept up with ti much over the years. Bravo Zulu to you all who served her well.

Nice to see the deck log back up. Served from pre-com to 79 in E div (IC). I am still working in the telephone industry. I have seen many crewmembers in the deck log and reading some of the stories brings back memories. Serving on the Virginia was a great experience. It wasn't just a job, it was an ADVENTURE!!!!

This is what I get for getting nostalgic in front of a web browser! I served on the warpig from early '90 to late '92 in OI Div and remember many a good and bad time, but mostly remember the crazy guys I sailed with, some of whom have signed this log, also. Thanks to Mr. Huston for maintaining this site, although it was painful to see pictures of the old girl sitting in her grave, after having spilled so much sweat and blood onto her haze grey hull. To all my shipmates, and especially my fellow scope-dopes, I raise my glass in toast and wish you fair winds and following seas wherever you may be!

Nuclear Electrical Plant Operator. EM1 Curl, original crew, 2nd manning during construction at Newport News Shipyard. Never knew what she accomplished before she was decommissioned, what a shame. Interested in any of my old crew members in the nuclear departments, news, reunions, whereabouts. Capt George W.Davis was my only capt while aboard. EAOS AUG 23, 1978.
