I went to sea with VA 66 A7E squadron in 1973. It was my first ship. We did the med cruise. We were there in the Yom Kippur War or 1973 Arab-Israeli War. For so many years no one said anything about our involvement. But now I see things about it on the internet. I had some really good friends on that cruise but I have not heard from any of them since then. We got to go to some really good places and see some great things. Lots of great sea stories for sure.
