I do not know about the E but on the ranger if you had a heavy civilian coat it was allowed under your flight deck vest for there where no winter gear available.

Yes I remember off the coast of Korea only I was not in Heavy 1 I was on the old Ranger in Heavy 6 and luckly I did not have the flight deck watches for I was 1st class but I still know the cold, and we had came up after a complete line period in the gulf instead of Hong Kong.

You remember how damn cold it was off the coast of Korea. No flight ops, no body allowed topside after dark except the flight deck watch and they were paired up and couldn't stayout over 5 minutes at a time.

I think we were on the Enterprrise and there was a lot of demostrations in Sasebo
because we were the first nuclear ship in Japan. Later on we were sent to help the USS Pueblo which had been seized.

Remember "nickle" night in the club at Sanford. Night before payday Old Milwakee Beer for 5 cents. Gosh, I hated that stuff.

I think they sold them in the street shops in Japan

Does anyone remember "Boats" Allen, our barracks MAA? How about the Humble/ESSO tiger sign he and the "coop cleaners" erected in front of the barracks in Sanford?

Well, it was a looooong time ago, in a land far far away (Sanford) that I saw it! I think it was one of those "specialty" patches and NOT the "official" squadron patch.
