Here's To A Remarkable 20 Year Reunion!
I just have to say thank you so much for making our reunion weekend a huge success. We worked so hard and anticipated a great time, but often times great expectations fall short. I am so pleased to say that all the time, effort and money was well worth it and in my opinion nothing could have been better. The feeling I had is still with me personally and that kind of warmth and comfort is invaluable. I feel that this whole experience was one of the most rewarding emotional investments I have made as well as one of the best weekends I have had in a while -- I didn't want it to end!
And it really doesn't have to. Those who aren't local can still keep in touch here and we would also love to hear from those who were unable to attend. There is never a fee or any commercial advertising or business interest to use any part of this site. It is for us only, and anyone can contribute and let us know what is going on in their life by updating their profile, "now" photo, posting new photo links and keeping the message board active. It is great to see so many with links to their personal and business websites too. In addition, feel free to send someone your wishes when you see an upcoming birthday or a prayer that someone wants to share. My goal is to preserve this feeling which I have (along with many others I have heard from) and keep the sentiment alive on this site.
Again, many thanks and I promise to do my best to keep this site an inviting place for all of us. You are welcome to post upcoming planned events or smaller, unofficial get-togethers in any city in the message boards, so we don't have to wait for a big 10-year celebration or to purchase tickets when we want to catch up in person. Please feel free to e-mail me with any questions, concerns or submissions regarding this site at any time. On behalf of myself and the reunion committee, we wish you many more memorable moments with your current families, friends & loved ones in the years ahead. Just remember that you also have a family waiting right here whenever you feel the need to reconnect or share, or maybe just escape the daily grind and step back in time to keep a part of your youth alive with those who lived it with you. In an age of uncertainty, it is a bond we share that will never go away, no matter where our lives lead us.

. . .
After graduation I attended Phoenix College for 1 year, decided that I wasn't ready for the college path and so I blindsided my parents by joining the Navy. I think that with 5 daughters they had never really considered the whole military path but they are very proud of my military service and also that of my baby sister, Rosemary, who is currently serving with the JAG Corp. in Washington, DC.
I served in the Navy for 4 years from 1988-1992 (Desert Storm) as a Machinist Mate. I served in the Engineroom of the USS Samuel Gompers (AD-37) which was a Destroyer Tender (repair ship) homeported out of NAS Alameda, CA and went on two Western Pacific deployments.
As for my occupation, I really still haven't figured out what I want to be when I grow up. However, I've been a Legal Secretary for the past 12 years or so. But I've also done various other things throughout the years, like work for America West Airlines as a reservations agent and a stock clerk, Secretary for the City of Phoenix, Justice Court Clerk and Legal Secretary for Maricopa County, Legal Specialist for Raytheon - Space & Airborne Systems. I am currently working as an Executive Administrative Assistant to the Chief Legal Officer at Res-Care, Inc.'s corporate offices. I am basically a jack of many trades and have decided that if I ever win the lottery that I'm going to go and push the hot dog or ice cream cart at Disneyland. So if you see me there someday, don't be surprised! : )
I was married December 9, 2006 and my husband's name is Roy Stapleton (I know I'm a late bloomer). Roy and I met when we were both in Machinist Mate "A" school at NTC Great Lakes, Illinois and dated briefly before the Navy put an ocean between us by giving him orders to the USS Midway (CV-41) in Yokosuka, Japan and me orders to the USS Samuel Gompers (AD-37) in Alameda, California. We kept in touch and I did see him when my ship went on a Western Pacific deployment.
He managed to get orders to the San Francisco bay area, after his time on the Midway was up, near where I was stationed, but things just didn’t work out the second time around. However, I dropped him a line in 2005, found that he was single again and that there was still "something" between us. So he moved out to CA in November 2005 and we started working on us. I accepted his proposal in July of 2006 and we quickly planned our wedding in order to ensure my baby sister Rosemary could be a part of it before she deployed to Afghanistan in early 2007.
While I have yet to be blessed with children of my own, I do have 11 children in my life. My sisters have all been married and all have been blessed with kids which I borrow from time to time (they are cheaper that way!). Some of you may remember my two older sisters Susan (Class of '84) and Olivia (Class of '85). Susan has 3 kids and Olivia has 2. My two baby sisters (also AFUHS Alumni), Rosemary and Roberta each have 1 kid. I also have been blessed with 2 great-nieces and 2 great-nephews from Susan's oldest son & daughter. My nieces and nephews are my pride and joy and manage to keep me young and broke!
I lived in Goodyear after the Navy up until 2003 when I moved to Culver City, CA. I guess the Navy softened me up and the summers were just killing me! My husband and I moved to Jeffersontown, Kentucky in 2011 thanks to him finding a job out here, but it just doesn't feel like home and I really miss being closer to the coast. However, my parents and 3 of my sisters are still living in Goodyear/Avondale and so I may find myself living back home again or, hopefully, in the cooler parts of Arizona someday. : )
