Served onboard the mighty Virginia from 90-94 as a CIWS Tech. I just finished copying some old cruise tapes from the shellback ceremony and the Desert Storm to DVD. Brought back many fine memories. Heading back to sea on the USS Normandy. God Bless you all and have a great new year!!

I served on the Virginia as the chaplain 88-90. Browsing through this page was very nostalgic. I have fond memories of my time on the Virginia, shipmates and places visited. Nothing lasts forever and was sad to see the best ship on the waterfront leave the fleet. A short time after leaving the Virginia I was asked to visit a retired Sailor who was close to death. When he found out I had been on the Virginia he had his wife give me a plaque...a keel laying plaque of the Virgina - a cherished possession.

I am a plank owner from E div (IC2). I visit this site quite often to see what other crewmembers are up to. It is a great site. I don't think it should be used by others to "advertise" their sites. If it is possible these emails should be removed from the deck log. Let's keep this site for the purpose it was designed-for shipmates and crew members to keep in touch and to talk about their experience on the USS Virginia.

Quick correction for the Clickable Image Map. As OS2 Jordan, I was the CIC Watch Supervisor when the call came to report when on station ready for call for fire. 5 inch 54's were fired BEFORE the Marine Barracks Attack (not after). The Marine Baracks Attack was a direct retaliation. May they all rest in peace. It was the saddest day in my Navy career. Peace and Love, J. Jordan, MCSE

Greetings again to all. Riding with the Patriot Guard (patriotguard.org) now. Riding in honor of fallen heros has brought back memories. There were a few of us playing catch up to the ship in the spring of 91. We got sent to the Brown-n-root in Bahrain. I ended up filling sand bags at an embassy with the Marines on one working party. Then working at ASU sorting mail on another working party. Looking back through my service record none of that week ever got documented. Our girls are growing like weeds. We now have our first grandchild. Still looking for Randy Ellis, Jim Kittle, and Dan Smalt. Hope that you are all well.

Great site! I discovered it while searching for some info about Captains Sheridan and Voorheis while I was stationed on the VA, from '86 - '89. Some of those stories really bring back memories, especially 'Moon ship'. I'll have to see what I can come up with for stories and pictures.

Well looking at the messages I see some of the old crew when I was an FC3 48 tech. I am retiring now and not to sure where I will end up. 20 years has seemed to flash by I am out here in San Diego now and paln to head back east. Maybe some of you will drop me a line I will have to check back into this when I get home and send out some hails. Take care to all of you and maybe our paths will cross again. Thanks for the memories and the good laughs soon to be retired FC1 (SW) Brian Lobert

I served as an OS on the Virginia from '79-81.I dreamed every day about getting out, but I was still saddened at the news of her demise. Port and starboard watches during the I.O. cruise were exhausting, but the liberties were even worse. I hope eveyone is still alive and well. The Philippines, Mombassa, even St. Croix may never be the same. Take care.

Onboard 11/84-4/88. Just noting my new email address. I had a dream last night that I was still in the Navy and I was getting out and forgot to clean out my locker! Weird! Good to see some of my old friends on here. I still periodically talk to TM2 Cronk. I've seen FC2 Rutherford, FC2 Bykofsky, and have been looking for FC2 Greg Crawford and YNC Kenneth Barbery. These guys are hard to find. Take care everybody! ET1 Huss! You still need to clean up the puke off of the floor in that apartment I had in Portsmouth! LOL!!!!

I would like to say "HI" to all of the plankowners out there. I just can't beleive it has been 30 years since we put her into commission and that all of the NUC cruisers are all gone. I was lucky enough to attend the commissioning of the new VIRGINA in 04 and got to see Capt (Vice Admiral) Davis and Master Chief Wright again. All I can say is "Oh how the NAVY has changed." I hope everyone is well. If you served on her thru 1979, drop me an email. I would also like to say HI to Joel Huston who I also met at the commissioning in 04 and let him know the great job he has done in maintaining the VIRGINIA web site. Bravo Zulu, Joel!

She was commissioned 30 years ago: Septemebr 11, 1976! It's hard to imagine I served almost 25 years ago now. How time flies and trouble continues.
Hope all were able to take a moment of silence for those who have perished on that fateful day only 5 years ago.
I will also remember our fellow Marines who lost their lives in Beirut on October 23rd of 1983. Please take a moment and remember.

Hey guys. I served from 83-84. Started out as a deck ape and left as a corpsman striker. Great to see some of my old friends alive and well. Has anyone got any info about Donny Morris? He was a Bosn and transferred to the Missouri. He's the closest thing to a brother I ever had. I know none of y'all will believe it, but I'm an ordained minister now, married for 19 years, and have a 17 year old son. I guess God still does perform miracles!

Correct that strting service date from March 1981 to March 1982. Old age must be setting in, and back then the 39 months spent onboard was enough. Gee, what I'd give to be back in now, UCMJ, 3squares a day, it don't get any better than that, eh shipmates? Be well all of you.

Excellent site. Recognize a few names from the current sign-ins. Served in RL Div from 10/89 - 10/92 during Chief Berry's reign. Remember the initial guys of Vern Scoggins and Eric Call when I arrived. Served with Marty Sugerik, Dan Peters, Big Dan Crandall, Jamie Dickson, Steve Hansen, "Lou" Rawls, Jerry Pierce and later Craig Sadrack and Dominic Dale. MMs include Marty Hair, Dudukovich, V-12. Hope to get in touch with some of you. My memory will return with other names as I go through the site's pics. Hope all is well.

Hey all, Nov 1 79' to Aug 13 82' ("terminal leave") are the dates I was aboard. While reading some of the "sea stories" I realized I was present for some of them. What memories they brought back. One for instance, while on an O/I cruis, during my off duty shift (port & starboard duty) the sea's were really rough, and the ship was hit on the port side by a really large wave, knocking almost everyone in port side racks out of their racks. I suffered a split chin from a brass deck fitting. Other injuries included a broken arm and broken leg! I was an operations specialist 2nd class when I left the ship. Take care everyone "Rosie"
My old email address at surnfetusa no longer used
Anyone from 79' to 82' O/I div please drop me a line!
I have a few stories to tell!
