Welcome Aboard Mates


This web site is a tribute to

the USS Betelgeuse or "Goose",

my years in the US Navy and the

many great mates who served with me.


When I left the Navy in 1965,

I was a Boatswain Mate Second Class,

you can learn more about them here.


Thank you for your visit here today,

I hope that you find this web site useful.
