Just found this group. I too was in Hvy 14 and exited in December of 1973. We got early outs if I remember correctly. Got "codded" off the deck while out sailing. I got back to San Francisco to be released on 12-20-73. When released, I was an AMH-3.
Dennis I just remember the name tacan, ha. It for sure was no for AE'S. if the signal was in the air, it ain't mine, ha. Dennis it sure is fun getting back into talking to a great group of guys from "floating 14" it was the best and the worst times all rolled up into one. The pressure was good to finish a job we did. See ya later. Delbert
Dennis, I was a Plank Owner of RVAH 14 and the USS John F. Kennedy. I came aboard when heavy 14 was formed in 1968. I got our in May 1970, just before they moved to Key West. We moved the Sanford Base to Albany, GA.
You may have served with a great friend of mine - Keith Byington. I have tried for years to connect with Keith with no success.
Glad to meet you - maybe we can stay in touch and tell stories.
