    Here is the Military thread at the Tahoe/Yukon forum I belong to:

    https://www.tahoeyukonforum.com/thre...-force.118133/

    I hope it opens for you. After posting the link I did click on it and was able to open it. Have fun reading all thru it. Anyone here is welcome to read it and respond as they wish. Remember, guys and gals joined and served to give you that right to do so.

    I was on the USS Kitty Hawk CV-63 aircraft carrier from Feb. 1972 to Dec. 1975. I was in the last 2 years of the Vietnam War and then 2 years of peace time. I was ships company and a photographer. The last year in I was on what they called "flight skins" which allowed me to fly on and off the carrier. I have flown in helicopters and jets. Launching off a flight deck and landing on a flight deck is the biggest rush I have ever felt. Like Kris said, I liked being in the Navy and all the places I went to, from San Diego to Mombasa, Kenya and all points in between including Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Thailand, Vietnam, Phillipines, Guam, South Korea other places I forget now and to Hawaii 10 times. I just did not like some of the guys I went with. I belong to a Tahoe Forum repair help forum and they had me start a Military Thread and I posted many many stories and lots of members have done the same. If anyone is interested in that thread, get back to me and I will post a link to it. Beware, it is a large thread.

    The reason I got out a little early was that I was accepted in a college in northern Ca. and was let out when the ship hit port on my last deployment.
    I would be interested to read that!

    Whoo, I served back in the dinosaur days..lol. 84-89 during the Cold War. I was Military Police/Customs in Keflavik, Iceland, and supply on board the submarine tender USS Frank Cable in Charleston, SC and La Maddalena, Sardinia. I loved Navy life, round peg in round hole.
