Happy Thanksgiving to all. Hope that everyone has a chance to spend the holiday with family, we can all recall times when we could not. Thanks to you all for your service. Stay well, stay close.
Dave; I need your email address. Found a pix of us at the Sky Club, NAS Cubi Point. My wife is trying to get it on the web. I'll send it to you!
From PN to PH - too funny! I'm on the other side of SC, northwest corner, midway between Atlanta and Charlotte, but I have a time share I can trade for NMB. I'll send you my email. BTW, SC wasn't much warmer than today. You're smart to head south as soon as possible.
I left 13 in October of 67, ended up in the Seabees for '68-'69, in Phu Bai/Hue .Had the unfortunate circumstance of ending up in Hue during the TET offensive. Never did get to work in my rating,while in country. Did security for convoys. Combat Photography for the Regiment. Yeh, go figure. My CSO said, "Oh, your from a Recon Photo Squadron! You're my new Combat Photographer! A 90 day wonder who had no idea what a personellman was! By the way, my e-mail address is email@example.com. My wife and I are heading to Marathon, Fla.for the rest of the winter, in February. We will be coming through S. C. in April. Maybe we can hook up! We usually stay in N. Myrtle Beach.
I remembered Sutton after I sent my last reply. I haven't stayed in touch with anyone. Don't remember Rickers. When did you leave the squadron?
Hi Dave, Rick Potts was the other PN. then there was Mike Gause,PN strike. Evans and Isenberg were YN strikers. Tom Rickers,YN3. John sutton, YN3, and of course Covey. I'm in touch with Rickers and Sutton, via e-mail!
Hi, Dick. I remember you - don't even have to go back to the cruise book. Back in the day, they kept us PTs locked up in IOIC most of the time, but there were a few folk I knew well enough to remember. Admin personnel, of course, were among them. I've been trying to remember some of the other PNs. There was one guy, from Chicago, whom I kept in touch with for a while but then lost contact. Think he may have been in charge of mail at one point. Then of course, everybody remembers Covey.
Hi Dave Bennett; I probably "checked" you into the Squadron, back in 67! I was a PN3 in the Admin. office. If you check the Cruise Book under Admin. Dept., I'm at the bottom right page, talking to "Froggy" Croakman!
Good to see some familiar names from the past here. I joined '13 on Kitty Hawk at Cubi Point in January 1967 as a PTAN. Remained in the squadron through the 'round-the-world/WesPac cruise '67-'68 on America, CarQuals on Independence and part of the Med cruise on Forrestal '69-'70. Left In Malta as a PT2 at the end of my enlistment. I was trying to figure out when that film was shot. I recognized Cdr. Higginbotham at about 13:00, apparently before he became CO. I'll have to check my cruise book to see if I can pinpoint the date.
rich barker i served in heavy 13 june 67 to oct 69 worked on the line crew did west-pac cruise on the america hello to all
