Did aimd with Dave Brace & Terry Ski ( to many letters) on Indy after Indy to RVAH-9 then RVAH-3. Was shipped over in 77 to TDA school. Spend almost 10 yrs at Miramar as a TD1 then back to AQ for 2 Yrs in VF-211 Kitty Hawk and Nimitz then retired just over 20. Moved to Las Vegas 7 yrs ago love it.
If I remember you right, you were an AT1 in RVAH-13 during the 75/76 cruise. I came to the squadron right after quals just before the cruise. I worked in the ASB shop with Walt Gumby, David Kirby, Jerry Meyers, Charles White and a few others.
Just checking in. Been too long. Hope you are doing well, and are refusing to get older. It's so seldom that I get around to this site it would be better to keep in touch by email. Mine is firstname.lastname@example.org.
Best wishes for a long and happy life. Word of advice - don't get into politics, it's too messy.
That's pretty interesting. I will look for that website, if you know the address send it. I checked your profile, did you do 20 years?
I went to the reunion last Summer and had a pretty good time of it. It was better than I thought it would be, and the site was excellent. The guys who worked on it did a very good job.
I saw Joe Brandl last Summer just after the reunion. His wife invited me to New Hampshire for his surprise 60th birthday party. I had a great time and it was a lot of fun. As I explained to him; the last time I saw him was 38 years ago, he looked bad then, and still does.
Reference the photo of the launch on cat 2. Is that plane 149307? Is so I think you painted my name on as the plane captain for that Ranger cruise. Where did you find the photo?
Have a good holiday.
I called Chief Fockler about a month before the reunion. I was trying tolocate billy Ray Thomas......i found out much to my dismay that he died about thirteen years ago in san Antonio, Tx. Did you ever teach at nattc memphis.
