Hey Richard,  RVAH-14 left Albany in Summer of '73 bound for the Med aboard USS Independence.  We came back to KW around Christmas '73.  I joined H-14 from H-3 just before they left.  When we got back, I had to build and tile a floor in the AQ shop.  I don't know who got that space after 14 decommissioned, but I'll bet they're still cleaning up excess mastic oozing from between the tiles of that floor.  I showed them.  :o)

Hi everyone, I was attached to RVAH-14 a very short time before decommissioning in Key West. I Joined you at KW as you were coming back from a westpac in 1973. I worked for Chief Brown, I think... Photo chief When we decommissioned I went to RVAH-7. Just starting as a PH E3 in the squadron but really didn't get to know anyone for the short time there.

Richard Farmer, PH1

1971-72 was my last cruise on the JFK before orders to Pensacola. I worked in IOIC as a PH2 developing and reading pic that Capt. John's crew took. Really enjoyed the job and the cruise.

Captain Johns was my skipper on med cruise 71-72.  I was an AME2, i remember him telling me about flying spads in Nam before RA5C's.

My enlistment was over upon the return of the 70-1 Med cruise on Big John.  I did not have the opportunity to serve under Capt. Johns.  Beside the Vigi. the F-8 Crusader was my favorite bird.

I bumped into Captain (retired) Cliff M. Johns.  He was the skipper of RVAH 14 for about a year starting in April 1972.  He made a comment on Facebook about a F8 Crusader that I responded, bringing up his flying RA5C's.  Asked which squadron, he responded he was my skipper in RVAH 14.  Son of a gun, he was!

The family of Heavy-14 Sailor, Calvin Stokley have made the following request:

Message from Marilyn Stokley

A group of lawyers are trying to determine if we have a claim because Cal died of asbestos related cancer. They would like to talk to anyone who served with him in the Navy. Could you please call me at (251)340-2581 or email me at stokleyclmw@gmail.com. It would be very helpful.

Mark, is there any way you can scan and e-mail that Family Gram?

Comment by Steven R. Ewing on October 7, 2015 at 11:24am

I sent the lowlife packing again. Also sent a note to the guard dog and anyone else with to power to accept or reject applicants to watch out for the lowlife(s).
