Hello Del, I don't know if you remember me but we worked together on the 64-65 cruise on the Ranger. In fact we are in the same cruise book picture only I am the second from the left and your second from the right. Hope all has gone well for you. Ever hear from Tex, Frank Turner etc.

I have several pictures I took while with RVAH-14 from 1972 thru May 1974 that I need to get digitized and post.

I reported to RVAH-14 aboard the USS JFK in Sep. 1972, made the 1973/74 INDY Med Cruise, and finished my assignment with RVAH-14 at NAS Key West on May 1, 1974. Upon decommissioning I was transferred to the USS Yosemite AD-19 in Mayport, FL, and three weeks later I was on my way back to the Med. I finished my Naval enlistment March 15,1975. After returning to civilian life and completing college I had serious thoughts of going back in as an officer, but signed on with General Electric and spent 30 years retiring in 2007.

Take care and Thank you for your service.... Bob B.

Chief Hayes,

I unfortunately didn't make it to a Viggie Squadron..I was in VAH 6...started out at NAS WHIDBEY...when we Med Cruised w/USS FORRESTAL in 64'-65' I opted to get discharged instead of re-enlisting...something I've kicked my self in the butt for ever since ...As soon as the Cruise was over...or there abouts was when VAH 6 went to the VIGGILANTE...and RVAH 6...

Chief Hayes - No, I was not (knowingly, anyway) the "frog".  I'm sure I generated a lot of nicknames during my tour in RVAH-12, however.   Good to hear from you.  Keep in touch.

Delbert, gosh it's great to hear from you.  I've talked about your banjo pickin many times over the years.  We live in Waco, Tx, fully retired and I spend several hours weekly entertaining in local retirement centers and nursing homes.  My email is rondoefritz@att.net. Please stay in touch and fill me in on your life after the Navy...
