unearned medals

USS Constellation 1964-65 cruise

 I was with VA144 Roadrunners this deployment.  We we involved in the Gulf of Tonkin Incident with the USS Maddox and USS  Turner Joy. We lost a couple of pilots.  One was LTjg Alvarez who was in our squadron.  He was shot down and captured. 

We sure spent a lot of time at GQ during this cruise and long times at sea.  Our cruise lasted 9-10 months.  Anyone else on board then?
