I was stationed onboard from 29 July 1983 to 30 May 1989 ! I was on her for almost SIX years. I was in R-2 Division Shop 56B A/C &R  shop spent some time in 38A and 31D too. Even a short time in R-2 office.  I called the detailer for orders and they would say your extended onboard like I knew about it. After I was transferred to my next command  I was looking at my service record the Command had sent  2 speed letters to the bureau to have me extended onboard. I came on in Hawaii on their first west-pac then made full West Pacs 1985 and 1987 and 1988-89 plus our Mini pacs to Alameda. Came on MM2 left MM1 (SW) made Chief my next command NAVSURFPAC(PMT) San Diego. You know someone that was on her longer let me know. One thing I do need is the Latitude of the equator crossing on the 1987 west pac if you were on on that deployment send me a note Thanks

Hi Moe,
I remember you. I was an ET2 aboard the Acadia and used to work in R-4 division. Are you on the site: There are a LOT of Acadia people there and plenty of pics. Talk to you later.
Take care,
