Hello, Chief.  How're you doing?  Enjoying retirement?

If you thought that my ejection was a show from your perspective, you should have seen it from mine.  I've still never forgiven the Ops Officer from H-1 - Meifert, I think - who (without authorization)  took over the tower that day from the tower operators.  I had declared an emergency and stated my intent to land on 04 b/c of the crosswind, but he went up to the tower, pulled rank on the tower crew, and ordered me to land on RWY 22.  I argued with him about the wisdom of that decision, but he would not allow me to land on RWY 04. After a hook skip over the gear, the outcome was fairly predictable. That was one crazy ride in the chute that day - dragged me all the way across the tarmac by the crosswinds - fortunately with my seat pan in tact, and face up.  All things considered, people like Meifert justified my decision to separate.  Up to that point, I was starting to feel some regret.

Where are you?  What are you doing?  How's life treating you?  Hope all's well.

I noticed the gear locker has been down for awhile. Any thoughts on where I can get an RVAH-1 ball cap?  If you want to send a note directly, my email is lrpigeon@gmai.com.

Thanks for the note; good to hear from you.

Welcome aboard Ron!  Glad to have you.  Are you related to CDR. Ray D. Murphy?  He was my CO and I was his PC in H-1 during our '68 WestPac on Enterprise.
