Thanks for the offer John.  No, I did not attend the reunion.  In fact I was not aware of it. I was a member of Heavy 9, IOIC crew, from late 62 to late 66.

Thanks for the welcome.  Excited about the possibility of locating a few of my shipmates in RVAH-9.

Thank you John. I came from Whidbey Is with VAH-13 along with the Skipper Tony Nolta, Paul Stokes Bill Johnson and Chuck Bergren.  As I was going through RVAH-3 I was transferred to the BGNAO school in Pensacola FL.  I had been in VAH-13 since it was commissioned. I was a B/N.

Hi John thanks for the welcome. I served with RVAH-7 Aug 66 to Aug 68. Made a West Pac on Enterprise and Med on Indy. Found this site while looking to see if any RA5C's were on display anywhere. My nickname was obie. I was AMH-3 and worked in the check crew.

Hi John, I joined RVAH-3 for Training March 1970 and then to RVAH-5 to serve when they came back from their Wespac in 1970.  I am looking for HC3 Scott Campbell and that is what drew me to RECCEENET as Scott was attached to NAS Albany and was my neighbor in town.

Thanks for the welcome John. I reported to VAH-7 in '62 and left RVAH-7 in '66. It's nice to be back among old friends. My last Vigilante experience was working on 156632 getting her ready for display at Sanford/Orlando International airport. Hopefully folks will stop and take a look at her if in the area.

Thanks John, I was an AMS attached to RVAH-5 from 1971 thru 1975. I worked airframes, then was transfered to corrosion control. Spent most of my time in that capacity.

Thanks John. I am was an RVAH-1 AD. There were many great experiences and good times. They are still missed. Hindsight is so 20/20. There is still an RA5C outside the old Sanford base that I can still visit..............Ed

Thanks John, I was a PT then IS aboard the Kitty Hawk, early 73 to mid 76. Made two west pacs with Heavy squadrons, 7 in 73-74 I think, and 6 in 75.

I got out in June 80 after several years at FicPac, Pearl working for ONI.

I and a few former PTs I served with have been trying to locate Charlie Johnson whom I thought was in one of these. I know Charlie made at least one cruise with us. Charlie is on the right side. Ed

Thanks John,

 I did time in 11, 12, and 3 from 1974 to 1979 in Key West. I'm sure there were nights I was at my wits end changing out a fuel control but overall I really enjoyed that time in my life.

Thanks John

I was in RVAH-7 from 68 to 71 as a PH3 in the Photo Recon division.

I did 2 Med cruises and a WestPac cruise in 69/70.
