 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
Upon retiring from the Navy in 1984, I went to work at Los Alamos National Laboratory and retired from there in 1997.  I had a variety of assignments there from OPSEC to Safety Officer and then retired as a Nuclear Facility Buiilding Manager for the Weapons Division. While selling my home in Albuquerque, New Mexico, I worked for the Orvis Fly Fishing Company as a fly fishing instructor and guide for a year.  I returned to Michigan where I am now fully retired.  My son Donn joined the Navy for 8 years as an EW and my other son Phillip, joined the Navy for four years in the aviation field.  Donn is working as a computer engineer in Atlanta, Georgia and Phillip is a robotics engineer working in Wixom, Michigan.  My daughter Farah is happily married and living in Missouri.  My daughter Karin passed away due to a life long battle with diabetes.
   
Other Comments:
I returned to Michigan where I am now fully retired.  My wife Bernice and I enjoy a quiet country lifestyle and we enjoy serving the Lord as Care Pastor for the Potter's House Family Worship Center in Mt. Pleasant, Michigan.

Vietnam War/Counteroffensive Phase III Campaign (67-68)/USS Forrestal (CVA-59) Fire
Start Year
1967
End Year
1967

Description
In July 1967, a fire broke out on board the aircraft carrier USS Forrestal. An electrical anomaly had caused the discharge of a Zuni rocket on the flight deck, triggering a chain-reaction of explosions that killed 134 sailors and injured 161. At the time, Forrestal was engaged in combat operations in the Gulf of Tonkin, during the Vietnam War. The ship survived, but with damage exceeding US$72 million (equivalent to $517 million today), not including the damage to aircraft.[2][3] Future United States Senator John McCain and future four-star admiral and US Pacific Fleet Commander Ronald J. Zlatoper were among the survivors.
