Hi Gerry!!

Yeah, I was one of those crazies running around the f/d chasin our A-7s. Working the CATs, etc.

I stayed in for the MED cruise in '74-75 the got out in April '75. Tried to get orders to Rota,Spain, but

they said no. I said "bye!" Kind of miss all of that(once in a while) lol

Gerald,  I remember Hartig but I don't know if I remember him from VP 66 or Rota there in Atlanta. I was a SAR and worked with some great Sailors and Marines out of the airframes shop. We worked on just about any aircraft. I don't remember anyone in the picture though. Were they all TARS. I managed to serve 14 years before a stroke ended my military career.

Gerald:  Thanks much for the welcome aboard.   If you are a Blue Angel fan you'll enjoy my book, which gives an insider's view to the operations of the Navy's Flight Demonstration Squadron.   Total proceeds of the book go to support our wounded warriors through the Fisher House Foundation charity.   Learn more at www.gomynavy.com.   Thanks again shipmate!
