SBU-22 History by Thomas R Walker (Tommy) BMCS
(sw) (cc) RET.
10-06-06 My name is Thomas R
Walker ( Tommy ) BMCS (sw) (cc) RET. I served
in SBU 22 as (Active Duty) Combat Craft Dept Head from
August '84 thru September ' 87. Our "Skipper" was Crd
Fisher and CWO4 Jim Pearson was the Eng Officer. I don't
remember the XO's name. We had 22 PBR's and 22MATC's,
and a couple of Boston Whalers.
I have found a couple of web sites about SpecWar and
SpecBoats,and was surprised to learn that the SBU's are
no-longer ! It also surprised me to learn our special
boats are now at Stennis Space Center! That was, of
course, our "play" area when I was there, and I guess it
makes sense, it was a good place to train.
If you can, please tell me when the move took place,
and, how many boats they have now. Maybe there is a web
site for the NEW location.
Thanks for any info, Boats Walker
