Hi , I didn't catch it that you were in VAH/RVAH-6 then ! Was in that outfit late 64 [caught the Forrestal in Naples ] I was transfered from VAH-8  with a couple others to 6 , went back to Whibdey to drop the A3's off ,then the transition to Vigies in NAS Sanford in 65 did the Westpac on Connie ! Was in AE shop ! And did you have to have a Plymouth in Plymouth Mi.? I know a couple here in FLA. that had a Pontiac from Pontiac Mi.  Never met anybody from Cadillac Mi. so I don't know about that !

Amazing....yes it has been a LOOOOOONG time.

When my enlistment ended @ Mar/65 I opted NOT to reenlist.

Something I have regretted since that day...

Did meet some outstanding people and made LOTS of friends.

Some I have located others have just disappeared  ...Still got a lot of memories...Some were scariern hell...some were funnier hell

Say what you will about "high performance"...there's something reassuring about the throb of those big round engines. I just had brunch last weekend with a friend and his dad who did 36 missions ( also as a navigator ) in B-24s. He was shipped over as a replacement following the Ploesti Raids. With all that you must have seen...I magine what must go through his head./ LT

Hi Shevs...I guess you were the pathfinder as I came along later via RVAH-3 at NAS Albany then Heavy Six for the 72/73 WestPac on America. I hit you up because I was in Plymouth, MI last Father's Day and enjoyed the EAA event at Mettetal Airport. Are you still aviation oriented?
