Howdy, I served aboard her from 1974 to 1978 in S-6 Division as Balance Crew. I knew lots of folks from the Air Wing Squadrons and I was LPO/CPO in the Supply Response Section. It would be kick A** to hear from some of the now Old Fogies I served with back in the day!!!

I was on the USS Nimitz from 1972 to 1975.  I was on the pre-commissioning crew in Newport News, VA.  I got out of the Navy in August of 1975 just after our certification in Cuba.
