Hi Fred, I was in RVAH~5 1970-1971, in the AME shop, I live in on the East side of DeLand on Periwinkle Ave. I didn't make the 71-72 Wespac cruise, I was discharged after the ship sailed. Glad you touched base, I have only found 1 guy that I spent any time with from Boot Camp, don't remember many of the guys from the shops.
Yes, I am still alive and kicking. I live in Athens Ohio where I went to college after getting out. All that fast living when we were over seas is catching up to me but I am still healthy and happy. Just retired as a construction engineer from Verizon Wireless in January and I am enjoying every minute of it. Still married to Mary (the girl I met in Memphis while at A school) and have 4 kids. One of whom is retiring from the Navy in a couple of years. Good to see you are still here.
Hi Fred. Seems like I must have known you. I graduated hs in Mt. Dora. Was stationed out at Pinecastle for a few years. Got married in Eustis. Spent a lot of time in Eustis as a kid. Worked at Creamons Chevrolet.That's probably not there anymore. Even did some graffiti on that water tower back up behind Waterman hospital on the other side of the hwy.
