"Wow, a voice from the past from one of my favorite people! Pleased and not surprised you made Captain!! I think the VSM problem relates the crew on the support ships. I still remember you recruiting me for teaching AMCM to the Iranians in Tehran.…"

Mike, so sorry to hear that ... he was a special guy ... nice to see that he stayed in the Navy and that he made Master Chief ... would have liked to run into him in that capacity, OSCM, imagine that ... let's stay in touch and look for an opportunity down the road to get together ... Jim

  • P.S. Sorry I got his name wrong ... I respected him a lot ... I guess that's what happens when you're in your 70's ... also don't walk all that great either

Hey, Mike ... I'd forgotten that we almost did that Iranian thing ... I live in Everett, WA and still work in mine warfare as a consultant to the Navy and Defense Industry ... 25 of my 30 years were in mine warfare including Operation Earnest Will, Operations Desert Shield/Desert Storm and my last tour as Deputy and Chief of Staff @ COMINEWARCOM in Corpus Christi ... that all set me up for what I do now ... I should hang it up soon, but can't seem to let it go ... sounds like you're doing well ... what can you tell me about Schumer? ... b/r Jim

Mike Ayers … are you still around? … the way some guys are talking as if they were not eligible for VSM … that's not how I read the eligibility criteria … you may remember me as "LT" … would be good to hear from you … b/r James (Jim) M. McCoy, CAPT USN (Ret)

Hi Mike. It has been a long while since we were with COMOMCOM. For those who did not receive the VSM was probably a mistake of the personnel office on board the support ships when the dd214 was filled out. I am adjutant with the American Legion and see a few dd214s that don't have it indicated but should have been. Let's keep in touch. I live in New Hamshire now.
