Terry L. Bruno and his Life in Adak
This short history, is a personal history. It is a portion of the life of Terry L. Bruno (and family) as we 'rotated through' Adak for three tours spanning 1957 through 1971. Terry was born in 1949 to Bruce (aka Tony, Anthony) Bruno and Audrey Reese-Bruno in Seattle, Washington's General Hospital. Terry's father was a career navy man and consequently traveled all over the Pacific Rim. After a tour of duty at CBC Naval Construction Battalion, Port Hueneme, CA in 1957, Bruce was assigned to duty at the Naval Station, Adak, Alaska. He traveled alone, as housing was scarce. We would wait in the CONUS for several months, until he obtained a home for us in the "Old" Roberts Village housing. We traveled by MSTS (navy ship) the USS Brekenridge. Upon our arrival that summer, I was very excited! I was 9 years old, and could not believe my eyes, as our ship pulled into the harbor. What beauty, mystery and potential place of exploration this was!!
Back in 1958... World War II had not been that distant, and there was so much untouched (indeed, unfound) treasure of history, sentimentality and knowledge. I took advantage of my time on Adak, and spent many happy days there.
