I was in RVAH-3 in 1969 and went to RVAH-11 in 1971 just in time to make the West-Pac cruise on the USS Constellation. I was in the Line Division as a plane captain. We had a great bunch of guys in this squadron and they all worked hard.

Hey Ben,
Thanks for the feedback. Quick question: How can we find out what happened to guys
like cheif Bish, Did you go to the reunion in Fla this past year? I didn't make it, If I'm still on the planet, I'll make the next one if the have it. Glad to hear you made it on the "outside". I'm married also, two sons, both Iraq vets. I have 4 grandkids. I returned home, utilized the GI bill and have been reeping the benifits of being in the military ever since. I think often of Albany Ga., along with the good times I experienced there. Always wanted to make it down for a visit; now it's a beer factory. Take care.

Hey Ben,

What ever happened to Cheif Bish. I owe that chief a lot of thank-yous. If there is any way you have any connections, hook me up. I'd sure like to thank him in person. It's funny how a person can do one little thing
and change a person's entire life. This man did it for me. He is a good person. Crazy thing is that I was 18-22
years old, with a non-military attitude and never had the chance to thank him. Strange how we grow older and
grow up, we think back and appreciate those guys who chose a career in the USN and looked out for us

Hey Ben,
I was in H-3, was in Line Div with Cheif Bish. Remember a guy Toledo, and another guy
Pete Mandel. I was an ADJ-3 when I got out . Served in H-3 from 69-72. Didn't like
it when I was in but when your 60, you look back and remember the good times.
Ran into a guy Gary Pelham . Just throwing you some names, maybe jog your memories.

Things are going good here in VA Ben. Hope things are going well for you all in SC also. I still remember when we went to your home in Saluda. I thought your Dad was going to shoot us crawling through that bathroom window.
Later compadre
