Eric Van Stralen commented on Douglas Karr's group USS Constellation CV-64
"I was on the Connie from early 1972 until Jan 1975.   We did a couple deployments to the Tonkin Gulf (Yankee Station for the most part) and a trip to Pakistan.   I helped put together the two cruisebooks."

Eric Van Stralen commented on Mark Chambers's group Operation End Sweep
"I was on the Constellation, pretty far offshore during this op but still awarded the unit citations.   Curiously, my DD214 only shows a few months in 1973 for Viet Nam service, when I made 2 deployments to the Tonkin Gulf prior to that."
