The final and largest piece of the move of the Oak Knoll Naval Hospital is by far the largest. Nearly 6 times heavier than the kitchen, this piece weighs 350 ton and is 6,000 square feet.

Can you guess how many jacks were under this portion?

If you answered 35, you're right!

Conspiracy of silence: Veterans exposed to atomic tests wage final fight

:(

At least 200,000 U.S. troops participated in atomic tests and cleanup operations during World War II and later in the Pacific Ocean, the Nevada desert, New Mexico and the Atlantic Ocean. They took the human brunt of deadly ionizing radiation that contaminated nearby lands, water and communities.

I have the May 11, 1962 "Oak Leaf" publication. Found an article about my father, Captain R.C. Doolittle.
Anyone on here recall a plastic surgeon at the hospital from the late 70's, early 80's name Dr. Cave?
Stationed NRMC-O 1974-1977. Neuropsychiatry Tech (5-South) also NPTS. Designated 12th Naval District Drug Exemption Officer 1976-77. Fond memories of many outstanding fellow professionals.
I was stationed there from fall of 1979 through 1980, before going to Guam, I was trying to remember the top officers name and rank .. seems to me he was kind redheaded or strawberry blonde but I could be wrong...anyone else there during that time it would be cool to hear from you 😊
Born there, May 8th 1954.
I was born here on 02/10/1952. I also had surgery here to remove my tonsils in 1956.
Does anyone remember a scuba diving course thru the navy using the pool at Oak Knoll Hospital around 1972?
I’ve started a claim with the VA and need to show that I had a surgical procedure at Oak Knoll in 1970. Any idea where medical records would have ended up after the closing?
I worked as a reg. nurse there on 7west from '91 until '94. One of the Australian civilians.Was a lot of fun, missed it and the people I worked with when it closed. Sad to see it gone
I spent a couple of months here for alcohol and drug abuse in the early 80"s any one else .
My name is Sybil Shainwald and I am a products liability attorney in New York City. One of my clients was born at this hospital and I have been trying to see if there is anyone other there who may know any information about the Pharmacy and the products the pharmacy was carrying between the years of 1950-1954. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to send me an email at [email protected] or call me at 347-429-2016. There could be possible compensation involved. Thank you so much, everyone!
Hello, I am working on a legal case with a client who was born at this hospital in 1952, can someone please let me know if they know of any Ob/Gyns that were practicing during 1951-1952? Any information is helpful. Thank you in advance to all for your help.
