Navy Veterans

A Social Network for Navy Veterans of the United States of America

As a member of the 3rd MAW I was the squadron Corpsman for a Transpac to Guam to ferry and air refuel F-4's back from Viet Nam. We were there only for 3 hours or so and we landed to get some fuel and something to eat.  One of the three C-130's hit a bird on landing and took off the antennae, but it could have been worse.  I took several pictures of the Gooney birds on their nests on the rocks.  It seemed like there was no one on the island but we did not know how big the island was.  I wish I would have spent more time studiying the history of the island and the significance of it during the Second World War.  Spent some time on Wake Island also and have the same wish there also.
