I was in VA15 1977-1980. A Cecil Field reunion would be nice!

All is going well for me, Joe!!!  Miss those days with VS-22, but not the days on the USS Saratoga.  I worked in Personnel and use to go to the AO shop and hide out.  They had a great stereo system in their shop!!!   I live in Michigan, but was down in the Jax area a couple years ago.  Great memories of my Navy years.

Hey Joe!!!  I was in VS-22 from July 1976 to Feb 1979.  I worked in Personnel, everybody called me "Harpo".  I remember hanging out in the AO shop a lot onboard the Saratoga with Doug Ferguson (Fergie).  I made two Med cruises with VS-22, one in 77 and one in 78-79.  I flew off the Saratoga in mid-deployment in Feb 79, after we left Barcelona.  Go Checkmates!!!

It looks like you were at NTTC Memphis the same time I was. I was in Personnel, across the way from ADJ school.
