 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
After the Navy, I thought I would like to work a few more years with the Goverment, so I become a civial service emplyee. I started my secoud career working for the Army as a 1060 still photographer, this went up to 1991, then I found myself working for the Navy again which was great, I was doing many of the things I did while on active duty.Then in 1996 I started work for the Coast Guard.All of this was in my field photography, I compleated my tweenty Years as a 1060 grade ten and retired a 2nd time in 2006.
 I now have a photography office and I still can not wait to get to work every morning.

Operation Nickel Grass (Yom Kippur War)
Start Year
End Year

Operation Nickel Grass was an overt strategic airlift and operation conducted by the United States to deliver weapons and supplies to Israel during the 1973 Yom Kippur War. In a series of events that took place over 32 days, the Military Airlift Command of the U.S. Air Force shipped 22,325 tons of tanks, artillery, ammunition, and supplies in C-141 Starlifter and C-5 Galaxy transport aircraft between October 14 and November 14, 1973. The U.S. support helped ensure that Israel survived a coordinated and surprise attack from the Soviet-backed Arab Republic of Egypt and Syrian Arab Republic.

Following a U.S. pledge of support on October 19, the oil-exporting Arab states within the Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC) held to their previously declared warnings to use oil as a "weapon" and declared a complete oil embargo on the United States, and restrictions on other countries. This, and the contemporaneous failure of major pricing and production negotiations between the exporters and the major oil companies both led to the 1973 oil crisis.
