And still, no one has remembered the name of the Squadron Master Chief during the '73 Med cruise.
If any of you Heavy-14 "Eagles" have been looking for a squadron patch (Plane Crazy doesn't have them in stock anymore) I found this company online and they confirm they have them in stock. RVAH-14 Squadron Patch
I am looking for a Para-rigger that was in RVAH-14 when I got there. I think he had brown curly hair and was a bit tall. I am trying to remember his name and have not been able to. I need to go find my cruise books and see if I can find him. I have looked through a lot of my pictures but do not see him in any that I recognize as Heavy-14 people. If any one could help would appreciate it and if anyone does know him and how to contact him that would be the best.

I've put together a few ideas about how to search for that buddy we all lost contact with years ago when they or we shipped out to a new duty station or left the service..1) Did you check here on Reccenet to see if they've "shipped over with us? Click on Shipmates in the menu at the top of the page (or click this link: Shipmates!) and enter their first or last name in the search box and click the magnifying glass icon (or just hit the enter key on your keyboard) and you'll see any and all matching that name who are registered here on Reccenet.I2) f you know their approximate age and where they were from or where they went after the Navy you can get leads from this website without paying them for everything they may know: http://www.intelius.com/3) There's the "Buddy Finder" on military.com4) I've had luck just typing the name in a websearch like google.com.5) If you belong to facebook or an other social media site you can sometimes find folks there. Just recently I found a former Heavy 6 and 12 sailor on facebook when I finally managed to spell his last name correctly. ;-)
If anyone is trying to find a "long lost buddy" send me an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll look and see if we have anything on them. I can't release their info, but I will email them (if they have a current email address on record) and let them know you're looking for them. Tell me in the email what you're willing for me to give your old shipmate for contact info (email. phone, snailmail address). Then it's up to them to try and contact you back (If they don't respond or hide even better there's nothing I can do).
I remember that Bob Hope show well. Also appearing was Ursula Andress, the James Bond girl, and LoLa Falanna and of course that I'm now living near Cincinnati I got to mention Johnny Bench the Reds catcher at the time. All were backed up by Les Brown and his band of renown. Good memories you conjured up for me.
Christmas in Athens 1970 aboard the JFK we had Bob Hope and the Golddigger Dancers. That was pretty cool.
I do remember the coup, I was watching TV or something when one destroyer after another blockaded the harbor entrance. I don't know about being kicked out of Athens. I flew out of the airport in Athens just before Christmas '73. I do remember pulling too many stints on Shore Patrol in Athens.
