Hi Bill,

   I worked nights all the time with Craig Roberts, Tom Kirven, Glenn Watson, John Woods, Bill Bare (and some that I do not remember). 

I remember doing Shore Patrol duty in Barcelona, Spain...bringing drunken sailors back to the pier!

Hello Bill,

My name is Peter Odell (PH3) and was in RVAH-7 from 68-71.  Made a WestPac on the Constellation and Med cruises on the Independence and the Forrestall.  I believe I remember you.

Hi Bill They call me SiskaBob. I WAS IN Heavy Six 1966-1970. I met a guy who was in RVAH-7 He owns an Italian restraunt on garfield&17 mile road called Luciano,s Just wondering if you know him? I met him and he's a really great guy-really good food. I think he told me he worked in the engine shop. Good to talk to guys from Mich who were in the Heavy Squadrons! I live in Lenox Twp near New Haven.His full name is Luciano Gianino.
