a history of Naval Aviation
« on: March 28, 2015, 03:08:00 PM »
Nice video here, contains a lot of my personal history within it's story! Served with a couple of the pilots featured. Got a little sad feeling after watching it because that's all it is now for me, is history! I have a good job post retirement from the Navy, but making beer and pop cans by the millions doesn't mean much on the national stage by comparison!Angle Of Attack -  "How Naval Aviation Changed The Face Of War":

David, what years were you in the Navy? I served in the Army from 1966 thru 1969 and the young people think that is ancient history. Air support was critical in the Vietnam War and saved many lives.

Probably a long shot, but did you ever know Tom Newell, A4 driver that retired out as a Captain.  Ring knocker that would have still been in during your earlier years in service.

No, name doesn't ring a bell at all but could of still deployed with him, lot of people on a carrier.  Hard to believe how many people I met at some point along the way in my career and figured out we were on a deployment together in different squadrons etc..
