Happy Easter!

HAPPY EASTER ALL Y'ALL! Easter is a great time of the year in Michigan. I look forward to it every year! Winter is over, it's time to put the heavy coats and gloves away. It's 3 weeks into Spring, and the sun is shining, it's getting warm and it's time to go get the potting soil and get the porch planters out. Put the lawn chairs out on the porch, and find my sunglasses. After all, it's Good Friday! Wait... What's that outside? Sounds like rain? Let me look outside... What the heck? It's…See More

The February Newsletter

Not only is February the shortest month of the year, but it’s also full of confusion, false hopes, and time travel. For example, by the time I realize we are in the month of February… we’re already halfway through the month. Like, how did we get here? Who drove?And for those of us that live in the frozen wastelands (Michigan), February means an extra blanket on the bed, layered flannel in the house and huge heating bills...Oh well, at least you'll have the Newsletter to read!Enjoy!!…See More

Bill,

Thanks for another great newsletter. I was assigned to NAS Sanford out of "A" school (only one in my class to get shore duty) then to RVAH-5 after "B" school. Just wondering, would it be possible for you to replace the green flight suit patch at the bottom of the newsletter with the REAL squadron logo attached. Thanks!

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.

I was in RVAH 7 A/F Sept 1966 to Sept 1969 don't recall you?
