What Commands/Squadrons were you with? *Notes* only choose RVAH-3 if you were squadron personnel, all others there for training select the RAG/FRAMP option, IF YOU SELECTED "OTHER" THEN YOU MUST ANSWER ONE OF THE QUESTIONS BELOW. BE SPECIFIC
Dennis, I met the squadron in June or July after you returned from the Med. I was a Seaman Apprentice at the time and left as a PN2 in October 69. I remember going to the paraloft and finding Erny Parker asleep on a stool with a cup of coffee in his hand swaying with the mental roll on the ship.
This is Joe Long...we made a Med cruise on the America. Been trying to locate former squadron mates but not a lot of luck. I did find Andy Anderson, he and I worked in the personnel office. Also searching the internet found the obituary for David Oliver. He passed away at the young age of 52 in South Carolina.
Hopefully we can locate more of our RVAH-5 shipmates. Would be nice to hear back from you.
