|Comment||Motor whaleboat signalman for downed pilot in eastern MED. His A-6 was in pieces and we found a lung.
One MED / I.O. cruise (Iranian hostage crisis) underway 7 Nov 79 thru 28 Jan 80. Shellback (special case for calling Moby Dick a minnow and breaking an egg on XO's head on wogs revenge day). He chuckled and called me an s.o.b. on the ASROC deck. LOL Traveled as far as Karachi, Pak.
Two NATO cruises. Bluenose. Traveled as far as Tromso, Nor. Up river to Bordeaux, Fran.
Harborfest NYC 4 Jul 80 met love of my life then and there (still happily married 35 years later).
It was an honor to served aboard a taut ship and squared away crew with some real class acts, some great guys, and some knuckleheads. You know who you are. LOL
