GMG3 Thomas Roach
GMG3 Roach(77-81), served
aboard USS Concord during her greatest casualty, the fire in Palma, the summer of 1978. I reached out to Petty Officer Roach in
researching this event and as such, he was chosen this quarter as our spotlighted member to give us a look at those amazing
days of USS Concord's life. Read Roachs' input at the "Spotlighted Member" page, or click here
"Twenty years from now you will be more disppointed by the things that you didn't
do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your
sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." - Mark Twain
