 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Diagnosed last July 2007 with terminal Lung and Bone Cancer. Presently undergoing Chemo Treatments (second) round.
Served at NAS Alameda from Boot 61-62 then worked in the Aircraft Maint. Dept. until I passed my E-3 test. Then went to the Transient flight line and became a plane capt on a T-33.
In 64 was transfered to Whidbey Island, Wa. to VAH-123 for training on A-3-ds. Sent to VAH- 6 as a plane captain and line personel. Then onto the 64-65 Cruise on the Forrestal.
Came home from cruis and 6 was changing over to Vigis so they sent me to VAH-4 Det C. Time for the Kitty Hawk cruise came up and as I was so close to my discharge Macnamara and Nixon Said Boy Why Don't You Stay AN EXTRA THREE MONTHS. Well that gave the Navy just enough time to let me go on that Cruise to SE Asia.. Did my time and came home in March of 66 for my Out.
Been doing diff. jobs since, mostly welding and some trucking Now am forced into medical retirement so I am sitting at home just waiting.

Luck To all and YES Smoking is VERY BAD for you.
