Take your pick, Andy. It's only 48 rooms to chose from. I'll get some pics of the inside and show you. That way everyone gets their choice of rooms. We have a piano in one of the living rooms that was used to accompany the Swedish Nightingale Jenny Lind on her visit to Natchez in the 1800's.

If anyone comes, I'll take them on a personal tour of our beautiful city and its homes. Oh yes, my family home is not the only one here. I will include more pics of others as well.

I was born in Gainesville, Florida, and was raised in Huntsville, Alabama. My Dad was an engineer with Army Ballistic Missile Command at Redstone Arsenal, where he designed & built the guidance systems for the Pershing Missile weapons program and for the Mercury, Gemini & Apollo space programs, as well. My neighbors and classmates & friends were the children of the German scientists & engineers that were brought over from Penamunde after the war. Werner von Braun lived in my neighborhood, and Conrad Dannenburg lived at the end of my street. There were so many Germans in my neighborhood & school, that I was taught German in 4th & 5th grade. My Dad left the space program and my family moved to Orlando, Florida, where he worked for the Dept of the Navy, at what used to be the Orlando Naval Base, designing warhead guidance systems for submarine torpedoes and submarine housed missiles. Orlando was then also the home of Mcoy Air Force Base, and was part of the B-52 SAC organization. I was educated at the University of Florida and Florida Technological Univeristy, originally majoring in engineering also, but instead earned my degrees in Management and Economics. I was offered a commission in the US Navy in 1980, but turned it down for a professional career in the Transporation Industry. Sometimes, too much education can make you stupid! I should have taken the commission, as I would have retired by now.

Anyway, today, I have 3 grown sons, the eldest is an electrical engineer, also graduated from the University of Florida, 2004, another son who is a manager for an auto parts chain here in Jacksonville, and the youngest who served in the USAF, was honorably discharged in 2006, and is now a firefighter in the county where we live.

Jacksonville is the home of Naval Station Mayport, the third largest fleet base in the US. NS Mayport is host to more than 80 tenant commands including 22 naval ships and six Light Airborne Multi-purpose System (LAMPS) Mark III helicopter squadrons. NS Mayport is also the operational and training headquarters for the SH-60B Seahawk LAMPS MKIII with a primary mission of anti-submarine warfare. The John F Kennedy aircraft carrier was home ported here, and was just decommissioned. Jax is also home to NAS JAX, which in addition to the many operational squadrons aboard, is home to Patrol Squadron Thirty (VP-30), the Navy's largest aviation squadron and the only "Orion" Fleet Replacement Squadron that prepares and trains U.S. and foreign pilots, air crew and maintenance personnel for further operational assignments. Other U.S. Navy Bases in the area include Naval Submarine Base Kings Bay in Brunswick, Georgia, the now closed Naval Air Station Cecil Field, and Camp Blanding. Sometimes, since I only live about 10 miles from Camp Blanding, I can listen/hear to the field artillery training exercises at night. The Navy units based/headquartered in Jacksonville are listen below:

  • Commander Naval Base Jacksonville
  • Naval Air Station Jacksonville
  • Fleet Area Control & Surveillance Facility
  • Commander, Patrol Wing 11
