Looking to connect with some RVAH13 shipmates.  I served in "13" from 1966 to 1970 and did the USS Kitty Hawk and USS America WestPac's and then the USS Forrestal cruise to the Med in 1969-70.  The first two years I was an ADJ2 on the Line Crew with St Amour, Tilley, Fat Jack Thompson, DJ Thompson, Muscovitch, Pappy, Boats, and the rest of the guys.  I spent the last year as Career Counselor (don't hold that against me) but would have rather been back on the line.  I've made contact with Earl Tilley and Walter McCord (AME2) but not many others.  Terry

I was the Senior Stewburner for the Squadron from 1973-1975,though TAD to the galley at NAS Key West,I knew most of the squadron who lived in the barracks with me.Being attached to RVAH-13,was by far the best times I had while in the Navy.I did 1 West Pac tour aboard USS Ranger with the squadron, and qualification aboard the USS Hancock before transferring to shore duty at PNSY,Portsmouth,New Hampshire, where my enlistment ended

Thank you. I have heard similar impressions from others who worked the line (deck?). It was hard to get a real impression of him from family. I don't know many of the basics, such as did he have a north carolina accent? My family were farmers, I loved them all, but I can't imagine a naval officer with a strong carolinian accent.

I believe I knew dad. I think he was a RAN. SInce I worked in the ASBline shack I'd debrief him after missions. We had a officer/enlisted relationship but I can say he was a technical man. He knoew the RADAR and digital computer to a TEE. He was soft spoken and a officer we lloked up to. He sdidn't look down on "White hats" Ski Grumboski (R)VAH-13 Dec 63 - December 67 Three tours to West Pac on the U.S.S. Kitt Hawk CVA-63

I joined in hopes that some of you may remember my father. Lt. Jack Walters, Jr. Shot Down May 19, 1967. I was almost two.

43 years later. I am trying to get to know the man, for me and his grandchildren. If you knew him.

I joined RVAH-13 shortly after they arrived from Whidby Is and left from the second cruise on the Kitty Hawk to go to PH "B" school. Went to US Customs in 1970 after discharge and retired in 1994With 31+ in military and law enforcement,. In the meantime I graduated Kean University and did graduate at Rutgers. Now I am politically interested in Libertarians and the Tea Parties..
