I was an AME-AA attached to VAQ-132. Didn't see much of the cruise or the ship due to mess cooking. Only partial cruise, no more.

I was aboard America for the 1973-74 Med cruise as an ADJ3 with VF 142 phantom squadron. Got to see so many great places including sailing up the straights of the Dardenells to Istanbul. Pretty wierd as I remember looking down on farm fields and WWII monuments on both sides of the ship! I also remember one "stand down" day on the flight deck we had a barbecue for entire ships company and football game. A Soviet destroyer came up fairly close and we saw the crew on deck with telephoto lenses photographing us... so we all ran to that side of the deck and mooned em!!LOL
