Yeah, looking for stories /sea stories for a book I'm writing. I already have one book out and am working on two others. First book; IN REPOSE, about diving on the USS Arizona, Second book; HOO YAH DEEP SEA, expected out this year, and third book; SITTING ROUND THE CHARLIE NOBLE, looking at next year. The second and third books are story anthologies.

Sorry David, been away from my computer. In response to your question, Yes, I did spend many a time on top deck during flight ops in the little two man room designated for the medical dept. Eyes couldn't, get use to the "red" light that we were required to use at all times while on hard top or in our room. Made for difficult time trying to read anything with the red lights.

USS Independence CVA-62  Sick Bay Ward #2  Unable to determine which Med deployment this was since I was ships company from 1969 until 1972. I believe we made a minimum of 3 deployments to the med.
