I was an AQ IWT flt deck troubleshooter from 81 to 83. Served w/ Roger McGaha, Jim Myers and many others, maintaining the A7Es. Great bunch of guys, even better friends.

Was with the Sidewinders back when they had A-7 Corsairs.Made the '71 Med and '72-'73 WestPac with the Winders aboard USS America CVA-66.They shouldn't have closed Cecil Field.I believe that was a big mistake.
