Best Duty

I was squadron Cook while attached to 13 most of my time was spent TAD to the Galley ran the speed line  burger and dogs for lunch. Weekends were spent either in the barracks or the Bamboo Room(as were most nights) I was TAD to the Ranger Galley on the 74 West Pac, I left the squadron right after coming back from the Ranger. Loved the squadron parties on Friday the 13th, RVAH13 was most definitely the best duty station during my 6 yr tour, many memories, friends and tequilas for 50 cents at…

Good carrier ops movie to look for

Not sure you all have seen this but my cable company has been running a 1980 movie called “Final Countdown” – Kirk Douglas, Martin Sheen, Katherine Ross.  It’s a story about USS Nimitz operating around Hawaii and enters a time warp taking it back to Dec. 6, 1941.  Great carrier ops video and of deployed squadron operations.  Interesting is a brief shot as the limo approaches the base in the opening scenes of an RA-5C parked on the ramp at Naval Station Pearl (but had to be NAS Key West –…

Death

It is with great sadness I report the death of one CDR Jesse Stewart "Red" Cleveland!

You that spent any time at all at NAS surely have heard of him.  He was XO at Sanford prior retirement.

Death Notice can be found in todays issue of the Orlando Sentinel.

Town Without Pity . .

Seems to me we have a huge dilemma in this country . . .

But I think our de-Commissioned carriers can come to the rescue.

We know a fully operational carrier will hold 4000- 5500 sailors. Hold all the food and water they need. Heck, they even have TV and Ping-Pong !

I think a de-commissioned carrier would make a fine 'community rehabilitation project' to help the worse of the worse re-commit to a lawful society. Who knows, some may survive the 'Town Without…

I have had mine for 30 years and still nice -. About 4 years ago an infection in my legs flared terribly and  lost both legs at the knees, the VA (treating it as service connected) treated me well in Houston. Still alive after 6 years military and 24 years in U. S. Customs. (down here there is more combat than in the 'Nam).Ted Drew

McCuddin mountains

Many of you already know this, but I just discovered that there is a mountain range named after my all-time hero, RADM Leo B. McCuddin, who was Captain of the Ranger when I was aboard with RVAH 9.  The reference is:

Really?

I just noted that I have been ranked #3 in the top members column.

Seriously, I was an E5... Nicely positioned between all the work and all the responsibility!  You need to find (easily) someone who is more deserving than me.   I look up to all you guys to do the right thing!

Enjoy the spring.  Fish are on the bed and there are simply too many

lakes to explore.
