Saw this come up for sale. Too rich for my blood, but I thought some of you all would get a kick out of seeing it.
Welcome aboard Mike. I did both the65-66 Westpac cruise and the66-67 Westpac Cruise. I&E and Legal Yeoman.
I was on the photo line in 65-66 cruise (RVAH13) worked with Joe LaFon, Wilson, Drew, Poteet and a few more who I can't recall. It was good experience and memories.
again I have to plea a bad memory. It should be the 72-73 cruise. Sorry guys.
Sorry that should read from the 71-72 westpac. Getting old, canlt see or type as well as I used to.
I remember 601 from the 71-71 westpac cruise on the Enterpise. The tail markings shown in the picture are NK and should be from the Enterprise. I did a lot of work on the engines of that plane. I agree with Mr. Drew, I grew up a lot on that westpac with Heavy 13. Good memories.
RVAH-13 is where I came as an 18 year old kid and became a man after a couple of trips to the Gulf of Tonkin.
Now I have completed 26 years with U.S. Customs and worked a little as an accountant in the international trade area. I like retirement best - even though I lost both my legs to a long ago infection. I'm 70 now and just like livin'
