Zumwalt

"RIP, Admiral Zumwalt-a Brown Water sailor for sure. Oh, and thanks for allowing me the choice of whether or not I wanted to grow a beard, and for raising my spirits with the changes you made for us."

Bill Pippin commented on Douglas Karr's group NAS North Island
"I arrived at VS41 right after AO A school in Jacksonville. I was attached to VAL4 leaving for Vietnam after training here and in Yuma. I remember a little eatery a block or so from our hangar area that had excellent bar-b-que. I absolutely loved…"

Bill Pippin commented on Ron Lister's group Patrol Squadron Eight VP-8
"I was with VP8 from 72-73, crew 10. Being the ordnanceman, I was also the cook. I hope no one held that against me. My crew mates were simply outstanding individuals. I went to places I will surely never see again-Spain, Bermuda, Iceland, England,…"

Bill Pippin commented on Douglas Karr's group NAS North Island
"I loved this base! I had been in the Navy about ten months. I volunteered for Vietnam(all the wrong reasons) and VS-41 was my last stop. We got off about 14:30, I believe. The barracks didn't open until 1530, so I had an hour to kill every day.…"

"Thanks, Jim. We were only there for three days and my little world as I remember it was the quonset huts. I don't even remember snow. I appreciate the pictures. I know I would have remembered the Northern Lights, though."
