    Welcome from Alabama. I was born in Bourne, Mass, but we left when I was 3 months old. Dad was in the Air Force, so we never stayed anywhere for long.

    Welcome to this board from a Pa. gal. I used to spend my summers on Marthas Vineyard so have many memories traveling in the Cape area. My brother retired from the Navy after 22 years but he was never on a ship LOL he flew airplanes. I enjoyed reading your intro. Marge

    I was born well before the early 60's more like the early 50's. In town, don't think they had an OB on base at the time. I have always intended to go back for a visit. I was born with a clubbed foot and a Dr Brown cast it before I left the hospital.
