The USS Betelgeuse AK-260


Welcome Aboard Mates


This website is a tribute to the USS  Betelgeuse,

or  the ” Goose ” my years in the US Navy and

the many great  mates who served with me.

Thank you for your visit here today,

I hope that you find this website useful.

    My husband was in the Navy, stationed out of Norfolk, and left the Navy about 1963. A very small world. So Anchors Aweigh, my friend. I am now following you.

    Remember, Donna is doing this site for me so I can answer only in ” Leave a Reply” or on one of my sites, I remember back when you first started following Sachem Speaks that you said that he was in the navy, so thank you my friend and “Welcome Aboard Shipmates” 🙂
