Checked into TA division along with five others fresh out of TALOS TATTE school while Long Beach was completing refueling at Mare Island in 1971. Got seasick before we reach the Golden Gate bridge on our first sea trial.  Made FTM2 shortly after checking aboard and FTM1 shortly before leaving in December 1974.  Worked with a great group of guys and was able to get together with a few at the reunion here in Maine this year, 2018.

I was a CTR serving TAD during deployment in 1967. Trip to Perth was great!
