I was in RVAH-5 from 1963 til 1966. I served on the Ranger & America. I worked in the bace shop on the Ranger and on the flight deck on America. I oined in 1962, went to boot camp in San Diego. I went to Pensacola to work on Helicopters until A school. Jacksonville to A school avation  electrican. Then to Sanford in RVAH-5.. I went to Sanford 2011 to a NAS reunion I though was a RVAH reunion. I hope this helps


I was also sent to Pensacola (HT-8, 1966) and worked out of the ASE shop, Yep U guessed it, while awaiting A-school, at Jacksonville. After A-school.. yep again, sent to RVAH-3 at NAS Sanford, then on to RVAH-14.

I went up for and made AE-3 while at HT-8, got my stripes in A school where I went up for E-5 and made rate. Not too shabby, E-5 in under 2 years. I wanted to go to San Diego, but got stuck going to Great lakes in bitter winter weather for boot camp. (I also worked SATE / BACE shop at Sanford, Albany & JFK (1969).

Even smaller world; was at HT – 8 in 1965 to early summer 1966, worked in airframe shop & none destructive testing. Went to A school then Rvah 7 airframe shop
