I was stationed at NAS Sanford...I was assigned to the Supply Department from
1`964 until the base closed in June, 1968...I worked for AK2 Rodney Chap[man.
Left NAS Sanford and went to the USS Independence S6 Division.

I went to NAS Sanford straight out of ATN "A" school. Got what was called an "A" school tour of shore duty. My orders read "Duration of Enlistment, NAS Sanford." I arrived there in late September 1963. I was compartment cleaning in one of the single story, "H" style barracks the day President Kennedy was shot. Worked in the Building 11 CNI shop for awhile fixing ARC-27s and ARN-21s. I moved to the Ops line and flew as observer in the station UC-45J until I transferred back to Millington for "B" school. Out of school I went back to Sanford to RVAH-5.

Surely there are more than me that were at NAS Sanford! I was assigned to the Supply Department from February 1964 until the base closed in June, 1968.

Did a short stint with Heavy Attack Wing ONE. Job was to recall ALL assets WORLD WIDE for update and  use in the Recon version of the Vigilante

On July 5, 2016 CDR Jesse Stewart "Red" Cleveland passed. He was XO when the base closed.  His obit was published in the Sanford, Florida newspaper.  He will be missed!

I was never with NAS Sanford, the system made me a member when I created this group.
