I am looking forward to reading your posts!
My name is Dave Bernier. I was stationed at Davisville, RI I was a construction driver in the Seabees.I was at Ellsworth station to build it. It was the best experience of my life. I am 75 years old now, but I would love to do it all over again. All the pictures I took were destroyed. If you have any slides, I would certainly enjoying looking at them & possibly copying them.What rate was your dad. .Looking forward to hearing from you. What else do you need to know? Really enjoyed the ride down on the Wyandot. When I retired from work,my wife & I sold the house & went full time in a 5th wheel for 6 years. We now live in Surprise AZ.
