Welcome Aboard Mates

This website 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,

Thank you for your visit here today,

I hope that you find this website useful.
