I found several guys I was
stationed with but had lost contact with over the years. We have even
got together in the past few months. Great site....that's why I became a
I have reconnected with half my
buddies from Kami Seya Japan (81-84). Including my best friend
Sandra..It feels like we've never been apart...Thks NTWS!
That's how I describe this website.......I have connected with shipmates from all the way back in bootcamp until the most recent....Its great to catchup.
Just about everyone who was a Plankowner aboard USS Higgins is on here. I attribute this to the fact that it was such an outstanding command that we have actively seeked a way to find each other and TWS has provided us a home for that. So thank you to TWS for being a place to reunite shipmates.
I hope I am not stealing his thunder, but this is too cool not to share: I got a TWS message from a shipmate that I served with in Kuwait. He told me that his son, who is on active duty found him through this site and contacted him after many years of not being in touch!! How cool is that?
It's amazing, I have found people from Boot Camp, Cecil Field, Pax River, Dallas, Albuquerque, Amarillo, Miramar. I've found people I forgot all about. Whoever came up with this site idea will have a special place in Heaven for bringing so much joy into our lives. AWESOME!
I'm getting together tomorrow night with an old shipmate I reconnected with on TWS. I haven't seen the guy in almost 10 years.
The last time I saw him he was an OS1 and I was an RM3. Now he's an OSCS and I'm an IT1. Where does the time go? Thanks TWS!
