A site from Allen Forrest about my Interests including Family, Travel, Photography, Genealogy, My Naval Career, Technology, Sports, and others. I hope you find it interesting as well! Thanks for taking a look!
I enlisted in the U.S. Navy right out of high school and ended up spending about twenty years in the service. It was the Navy that brought me and my family to Mayport, Florida, where we settled in Jacksonville Beach. If you are interested in reading more about my navy service, take a look at my service summary on the Together We Served website where you view a list of the the ships and other duty stations where I served. You can view some of the travel photos I shot overseas on my photo website at Al’s Navy Travel Photos. Here are a few samples-
I spent a few days on the Carolina coast last week. I stopped at Wilmington to go aboard the battleship USS North Carolina (BB-55) which is now a memorial there. Of course, I shot a few photos of the ship. Here are several of those photos.
As a former Navy signalman, I enjoyed spending some time on the North Carolina’s signal bridge where I shot the following photos-
While I was there, while leaning on the port flag bag and using my cell phone, I called my old shipmate, Bob Stockton, and said “Stockton, this is Forrest on the signal bridge.” It was just like old times.
I have posted more photos of the battleship on my photo site at AllenForrest.com. I’d love for you to take a look.
