Default Picture from long ago!

That's me with the shirt off turning wrenches on a C2A I was a ADJ-1 at the time, picture taken at Cubi PT Philippines 1970 we had just flown in from Danang VN and had a oil leak, Chief was giving me moral support. I had already been selected for chief but didn't know it when this was taken, the chief in the picture sent this to me.

Ever get a trap? Got my first COD trap a few months ago. Still flying the old birds! Just walked over to the squadron and asked for a ride, they said sure! C-2's are epic

Yep I was aircrew at the time and between the C2 & C1 I have over 100 traps and cats, between 1969 thru 1971 I made at least one trap/cat from every carrier the US Navy had except the Lexington. Good to be in a COD squadron!

Good old B-4 maint. stand. I had one that was so bad you would pump up, wrench then pump up, wrench again till the job was done.

It is a surreal thing to look back through pics and talk to guys we served with and remember when we made a difference. People that know me now would crap down both legs if they only knew the things in my memory. Best to leave those things in my head Regular folks cant deal with it.
