Other Comments:
I would really love to chat or meet up with all of my old friends from my past Navy Commands but I know that it isn't really possible. But I'll take all I can! What I would really love to do is get ahold of a Cruise book from 1976 onboard the USS America when I was with VF-142 Ghostriders. It is the only book that I didn't get from my career and that particular cruise probably had the most impact on my career.
