USS Belle Grove Logbook





Comments:
My dad served on the USS Belle Grove in the 1950's His name was Wilbur Louis Wright. He passed away in March 2011. I was over seas in Afghanistan deployed with NMCB 26. I remember growing up and go to all the seas stories that my Dad ship mates use to tell. In 1987 I joined the Navy and served 6 years and got out. In 2003 I returned to the Navy as a BU in the Seabee's. I am now a Chief in the Navy. My youngest son is going to join the Navy next year. I miss going to the reunions and seeing all my dads shipmates. I grew up in front of a lot of them and lived the life they told me about. :!cool: :!cool:

Is there anyone that was aboard the BG in the late 50s (57 to 59) that observed the atomic test, and now is having health problems. Please let me know. Thanks. Larry

Hello,
Yes an awesome reunion, and always wonderful to see our Navy friends and families. Russ and Sheila pulled a good one off, hotel was great, sightseeing and so much history, who couldn not have enjoyed any of that.
The logbook is in the mail, ready to be printed, contacted my Kori, and she is anxious to get it, probably tomorrow. Hope to have it ready to mail later next week or so.
Our grandson's team from Waukee are in the Baseball State Tournament, we were there, it was awesome to see them win, they play their first game next Wednesday, and they are the Number #1 seed, have been rated all year as 1st or 2nd in 4A schools in Iowa.
All for now, God Bless all of you, take care.
Portland next August.
Les and Janet

Hello,
Wow! We had a great reunion in Annapolis last week. Russ and Sheila did an awesome job planning and pulling this 2014 group together. So much fun, wonderful sights and lots of history. Hotel was beautiful, great people were there for anything that was needed. Successful raffle, ship's store and auction. Funny things happened to tell about forever, and just a good time for the shipmates and righthanders to be together. Our second family and we love every one of them and every minute we are together, only bad thing, the week flies by to quickly. Looking forward to 15 in Portland and 16 in Sandusky, OH.
