RVAH-3 (IOIC) from January 1964 - January 1966. Who remembers the Jet Inn?
FR 147 Home in Sanford is having the NAS/Whale/RVAH reunion June 21 - 24. I expect mostly Sanford and Albany types there. I'm coming down from Jax. Keep the Miller Lite cold.
ADJ3 Schriever, reporting for duty.
I was first with the Checkertails 1972-1974 then reported to Heavy 3 in 1974 as a Plane Captain. My time with the Heavy's changed my life in a big way. I was young and headed for trouble when I enlisted. I got married halfway through my 4 year hitch and remain married to this day, three kids and eleven grandchildren later. I even became a scoutmaster while I was in RVAH-3, I have a picture of the troop in front of a Vigilante that I'll post.
You're right Wayne. It was "6". I wanted to make that cruise but needed a swap. Decided to get out at my EAOS instead in August/September time frame.
BUT . . . I came back in April '73 and reported to VA-174 at Cecil and stayed in the VA community in one form or another until I retired in '90.
The fire on the Enterprise was in 1969 when RVAH -6 was on board.Heavy -11 was on the Forestal cruise in 67-68when they had the fire,Heavy -6 was on The Ranger then.
Heavy six was on the Big-E in 69.
I credit Mr. Denlea with so much good in my life. I believe he retired as a LCDR and lives in Denver area.
