I was born in St Albans Naval Hospital in July, 1951
I was always curious about the Hospital, but never saw it.

That place is within walking distance from me, I believe its a retirement home for Veterans now I may be wrong though. I remember when I was in elementary school (7 years ago) they always had trips there to help/socialize/and have fun with the Veterans.

I wish I had a picture of it to post, it looks a little Moroccan to me.

Thumbs up St. Albans Naval Baby

I was born there in 1952. There were military housing units on the property, which is now currently Roy Wilkins Park

Talking St Albans Hospital

Father was in Navy for 31 years. I was born in this hospital in 1953, brother in 1955. It also had a pool, movie thater, gas station, px, bungalows in the back and the greatest hallways. The doctors, nurses and staff was the best. The "Godfather of Soul" James Brown lived across the street. The statue representing the raising of the flag on Iwo Jima used to stand at the front entrance. My brother climbed it every chance he got. Drove the sentry crazy. Fun talking to the vets. One of the best memories of growing up in Queens.

As a Marine walking wounded I was assigned to the maine gate, very dull and very boring but safe after being in Vietnam. I was in a ward and by a window where I could see the bus loads of wounded arriving everyday non stop, very depressing at times.
