Flew out of Pittsburgh to Great Lakes in October of 72. Walked off the brow of the KAUFFMAN in Jan 99. Had so much fun someone asked me to write a book about it. So I did.

I was in from June '70 to December '79. Stationed on both coasts, Rota, and 2 WESPACs. Took a trip to the Carribian to try to capture a Russian sub that had run aground. It got away. I took a picture of a communist tawler in Hong Kong.

OK Bill. I am in. I served in the USN from 1958-62 and the USNR from 1970-78. I was stationed at NAS Norfolk, NAVSTA Guantanamo Bay and with VP64 in Willow Grove, PA. As you know, I am active in the Guantanamo Bay Association and this year's reunion is in Branson, MO.

Served from 1959 to 1961 aboard the USS Rigel AF58.
Recommissioning Crew USS Mazama AE9, 1961 to 1963.
Our worst experience was being shadowed by a Foxtrot Class Soviet
Submarine during the Cuban Quarantine, October 1962.
Even their periscope looked menacing.

I put a picture of the Cold War Certificate on my page. Go to my photos and check it out. Everyone should have gotten one in the mail, if not see your local VA rep. Congress is still working on authorizing the medal.

I think that this is a deserving "Command" and I am happy to join it. I have been lucky enough to have spent over 30 years serving and yet have never been in combat. The closest I ever came was a Russian torpedo singing past our starboard site while we were watching their Navy manuevers. We never knew if they were actually firing at us or if we were just in the wrong place at the wrong time.
