Hi Doug

I'm the same boat, as we get older, any thing that connects us to our glory days really

does that. I hope you had good Christmas and a Happy new year, I can't wait for

the next reunion to meet some of our old shipmates and relive those glory days and

some great war stories

Hi Douglas, My name is Warren Jones, I live in Lake Havasu City. I was wondering if you know of any Navy groups or organizations that meet in Northern Arizona? I know of one in Phoenix , but that is to far for me. Thank You, Warren

Doug,
There is a plat video of a crewman getting sucked into A6 intake. I think you can find it on Youtube and they have shown it on TV lots. I was at Medium Attack Wing ONE when I saw the video, but I don't know how old the vid was.

Sorry, Doug. No I don't. I came pretty close to having that happen to me. On active duty, I was a missle technician. We had Regulus one missles. We had to surface and bring the missle on deck to fire. Regulus one was basically a ram jet plane with a thermo neuclear warhead. We were having a drill with a missle rev'd up on deck when I walked in front of it too close. Close call.

Welcome Aboard, Douglas!

I'm Bill Karr. My son Doug created this site and I help him out a bit. We hope that you enjoy it.

The following message is from Doug:
1. Be sure to upload an image of yourself. You can add your image on your Footlocker.
2. Click the Commands tab and search for your commands so that you can join them and add them to your page! This is how other shipmates will find you.
3. Invite all your shipmates!
4. Don't hesitate to add an event or a reunion to the Events tab!
5. We've also started Commands for each State. Be sure to join or add your own state!

I give out gifts often for those folks who participate on Navy Vets! Be sure to start up a blog post or two and tell us all about your time in the Navy!

Thanks,
Doug
