Thanks Terrill,

 

I served  in Heavy 7 from Early '76 until June '79 when my enlistment was up.  I will always have fond memories, and good stories from those times.  I took my kids to Key West when my son was in the Marines, and we did a little tour of NAS Boca Chica.  Little had changed except the static display was now a Viggi, and the Exchange was much bigger.  I remember when Carter was President they talked of closing the base.  I'm glad they didn't.

Hello Terry,

Thank you for the welcome. I served with RVAH 5 And RVAH 7. I was there for the decommission  of RVAH 5 then transferred to RVAH 7. My tour ended just a couple of Months before RVAH 7 decommissioned.

Hi Terrill, thanks for the welcome aboard....... I was attached to Heavy 5 from
1963 to 1966. Didn't get to spend much time in Sanford. Was deployed on the Forestal out of Norfolk and then the Ranger from the west coast. I am putting together a Shadow Box of my career, would you happen to know where I might could fine some patches, coins or any other items on RVAH-5 I might could use. We were called the "Savage Sons of Sanford" . Any help would be greatly appreciated. My
email address is lvanzant@bellsouth.net and phone # 386-734-8516.
Thanks again for the Welcome Aboard.

I served at RVAH 3 Feb. 69 to Dec. 71 . I was a AK material handling. I went on several Carrier Qual.  on these,  I was the only store keeper for the Squadron on ship. While on base I worked the window in RVAH3 supply, also delivered parts to other Squardtons on base. BEING we were a rag outfit. Grew my beard their & still have it. At the time I served, I lived in Chicago.  Now Retired Sheet Metal Journeymen., Living in Mi. on the largest inland lake in Mi.  Guess it's the Navy in me to be by water.

Thank you  T 

- I was in 1 from Feb 75 to Jan 78. I was a AT 2nd Class. Worked O level most of the time but did work I level when we deployed on Enterprise.

I loved it would have stayed there for ever but knew they were dying. So I went to B school made 1st and did a tour of instructor duty in Millington,

Then went to VF-74 in Oceana VA. Did a couple of years with F-4's, made chief, then a couple after they switched to F-14's,

I was then transferred to NAS Norfolk assigned to the C-131 Station aircraft as maintenance Chief & Leading Chief until they sent them to the bone yard. I was then assigned to Air Operations until I was retired on disability for nerve damage in my legs caused by some of the chemicals we used in those days to clean aircraft.

I had a great career I made Chief in 10 years and was selected for 8 at 12 1/2 but never got to put it on . I would have been a 30 year lifer if they would have let me stay. I retired in December 1988.

I miss the life and all the good men I served with.  -- George

Thanks, RVAH 6, 70-74. Kittyhawk, America, Forrestall quals. PH. Went by Albany a few weeks ago. Gate was closed. May try to check it out another time. Remember B-52 parked accross runway when first arrived in early 70. Also the strong smell of peanuts in the air. That was my first time ever to South Georgia.

     Thank you, for some reason it is hard getting in touch with folks from my era in RVAH-11, however it would be nice if I could find some of them. I was on the Kittyhawk and the Independence.

Thanks Terrill:  Was scanning through the other days & saw of picture of a buddy I was stationed with in Heavy 13 back in 1965 or 1966.  Can't remember if he came aboard before the WestPac Cruise of 65 or after we got back in April of 66.  Good to remember the good times when I was young. Ha Ha.  Thanks again Terrill, hope to run into you again down the line.
