For those who served in the RVAH Community, their families, and friends!

I am researching the IOIC system associated with the RA-5C. I am specifically looking at the Mediterranean deployments of the SARATOGA/RVAH-9 and AMERICA/RVAH-5 in 1967 (Six-Day War) and the JF KENNEDY/RVAH-11 and INDEPENDENCE/RVAH-14 in 1973 (Yom Kippur War). I would like to talk to any intelligence officers or PH/PT that made those deployments.

Sea stories welcomed!

Cdr. Lesse,

I'm posting your request on the RVAH Navy, RVAH-5, 9, 11, and 14 facebook community pages and groups.

Steve, thank you! Did you receive any feedback?

Not really. I suggested that anyone with info to contact you directly.

OK, thanks. I have not heard from anyone.

Cdr Leese,

I found a Photomate from the right time period and he served on the Saratoga (unfortunately he was on the Saratoga in 1973). He's going to fill out your questionnaire online and I'll send him your email address. He can't do a phone interview because he has sever gearing loss.
