I was stationed in VS-33 from 1979 to 1982.  I worked the Line Division and Power Plants.  I remember meeting the squadron in Rota, Spain, sleeping on the gym floor for 3 days, until the USS America could send out liberty boats to pick us up.  Two cruises on the America in 1979 and 1981.

I was stationed in VS-33 in 1979 to 1981. I worked in the Ordnance Shop. Was there until just after the work-ups on the America out of Norfolk, VA.
