1. Served aboard CVA-31 on two WestPac cruises 1968-1969 & 1969-1970 with my brother John. I was in Weapons Missiles Division and handled mostly Sidewinder & Sparrow Missiles after the almost disastrous Bullpup incident while docked at the Quaywall at North Island, San Diego CA. I have to credit the US Navy for getting me started in life via “squaring me away” . I achieved more than I ever expected or thought possible thanks to that training and the education made possible by the GI Bill; for those gifts, I give much thanks.
