Passing of PNCS John Glasgow IP: 126.96.36.199 Posted on March 5, 2014 at 11:11:10 PM by R.L. BAKER
I came scross Chief Glasgow's name a few years ago and had this brief email chat with him. Anyone who spent time in Winter Harbor during the late 60's will remeber parts of this chat. RIP Chief
You are correct about all the stuff that he acquired for the base. I was there for all of that too. In fact, they had just got one of the snowmobile's and it was one of my Son's birthday, so I had special services bring it down to the old ball field. I had had a couple beers, and after I started it, instead of hitting the brakes, I hit the throttle on the handlebar and flew across the ball diamond and struct the old wooden bat storage thing there. Did a little damage to the snowmobile. If you worked in SecGruAdmin in the admin building, I was in the Personnel Office right next to it. And, it is odd that you mention your first liberty card. I showed that picture to my Wife today, and pointed out the initials G on the left side of Cdr Hahn's name. That is mine and meant that I had proofread it and it was ok for him to sign it. Also, we live in Scottsdale Az now, but are going to Winter Harbor next month. Altho the base is closed, it is some kind of educationial facility and I have made contact with them and are letting us stay in one of the cabins there. Nice chatting with you. John Glasgow PNCS, USN (Ret).
