I distinctly recall the commercial flight from Albany to the Kittyhawk, I remember sitting on the Jet in the darkness wondering what lies ahead. My first cruise, I remember clambering up the steps and coming aboard the KittyHawk. I'm thankful for those memories. Albany really was a good place to be stationed. The America was next, shell back initiation, remember tossing my dungarees overboard after crawling thru the garbage tunnel. it was a beautiful sunny day.....

As I remember the C.O. came from an A-4 squadron, because he was too big to fly that little plane. He was a great guy and  a great Skipper. Did you recognize me? I am the pant legs behind the CO.

Thanks for the photos, but this one is of two of my best friends. Sonny Pettit behind the hand shake, retired as a LCommander and Don Warnoke to your(?) left, coached me in working out. I thank him for my physically fit 70 years old. I must be behind the Skipper because Sonny and I made rate together, standing next to each other. I will look up my copy of this scene with my handshake and get back to you.
