This from my father when I shared your message:

I had the same thing happen at VT-6. One of our planes came in on a weekend. I was on duty in the ready room, turned around looked out the window to see him just sitting there with no plane captain to bring him in. All of the sudden, somebody ran out there and brought him in who wasn’t even a plane captain. I still don’t know how it ended.

Thank you so much, John. I really appreciate that. My father has this photo framed on the mantle. I'll pass this along to him so he'll know the rest of the story.

I hope this finds you well. Happy holidays to you.

Hi John, Larry Lee here.I worked line crew on the 72-73 cruise and the following cruise on the Ranger. I got out shortly after we arrived back from the Ranger cruise in Key West.

Hello John,  I was assigned to RVAH-13 in '72-'73 working in Q.A. (and cat checker)

as rep from Power Plants.  I do remember you although we didn't interact much, seems

that they kept the Q.A. guys confined to even smaller spaces than most other people.

Hope you are doing well.

Hey John I was ADJ in 13 at the same time as you, although usually in AIMD. I know, I know you but Im struggling to nail it down. Give me a hint if you remember me.
