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'

Millington is the small town north of Memphis where the base is actually located.  I went there after boot camp for AT A-school in the mid-80's.  That Vigilante was on display there at the time.
