Comments: My dad, Clifford Thomas Hill "Cliff" was a CPO in the Navy stationed in Norfolk, VA. He died on Feb. 1, 2004 but he loved the Navy and I would love to hear from anyone that knew him. I also have fond memories of visiting my dad on the ship when it came to Norfolk, and my dad would always send someone to help me come up the gangway stairs. Whoever you were/are, I thank you so much! I miss my daddy but remember how proud I was of him...even as a little girl. God bless you all and Godspeed!
