    I assume "15Y" is your MOS?

    I was there in 1952 with the 2nd. Marine Division. funny how they made the U.S. give it up because of dangerous unexploded ordinance and other chemicals but now it's safe for a resort.

    I lived in Puerto Rico for about ten years and visited Vieques, it is a beautiful island.

    I agree,it is a tropical paradise. I recently saw a segment on the travel channel and one of our tanks is still there,half buried in the sand.

    Yes, 15Y (68Y), Aviation, was my MOS. Alot of politician used the Island for political purpose only. Not every body was against the NAVY. They made it look bad. Most of them never saw comming: If Garcia close, RR(Ceiba) must close too! Now the sorrow. 25% of population in Vieques are American. About 25% of Vieques population are American, some served and stayed on the island.

    Never made it to Vieques, but I used to go into Roosy Roads when I was in the Navy.
