Welcome aboard Craig!
Thanks Steve...I knew some of the people that came after I left the Wing, but am beginning to have trouble remembering names! Managed to talk to Roddy Eastwood (CRAW 1, USS Independence), but have lost track of Carl Staph, Ray Felty, and Ed Slye. Someone told me that Ray had passed. Ed went to Heavy 7...Carl may have made it a career, but to the best of my knowledge, Ed and I were the only two of our group (all arrived at NAS Albany with days of each other) who were hooked on the Vigie!
I was never assigned to the Wing's staff, I was with RVAH-12 75-79.As a member of the volunteer staff here at Reccenet/RVAHNavy I signed on so I can send everyone messages that may be of interest (like the hints on finding buddies I posted below).
For Steve Ewing...when where you with the Wing??? I was there 69-early 71
I've put together a few ideas about how to search for that buddy we all lost contact with years ago when they or we shipped out to a new duty station or left the service..
1) Did you check here on Reccenet to see if they've "shipped over with us? Click on Shipmates in the menu at the top of the page (or click this link: Shipmates!) and enter their first or last name in the search box and click the magnifying glass icon (or just hit the enter key on your keyboard) and you'll see any and all matching that name who are registered here on Reccenet.
I2) f you know their approximate age and where they were from or where they went after the Navy you can get leads from this website without paying them for everything they may know: http://www.intelius.com/
3) There's the "Buddy Finder" on military.com
4) I've had luck just typing the name in a websearch like google.com.
5) If you belong to facebook or an other social media site you can sometimes find folks there. Just recently I found a former Heavy 6 and 12 sailor on facebook when I finally managed to spell his last name correctly. ;-)
If anyone is trying to find a "long lost buddy" send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll look and see if we have anything on them. I can't release their info, but I will email them (if they have a current email address on record) and let them know you're looking for them. Tell me in the email what you're willing for me to give your old shipmate for contact info (email. phone, snailmail address). Then it's up to them to try and contact you back (If they don't respond or hide even better there's nothing I can do).
Just saying hello!
