    Re connecting

    I just recently hooked up with some very good friends (Navy buddies) from 35 years ago. I swiped....er borrowed photos from their Facebook pages along with my own to make a slide show. These are flight deck photos (mostly) and the guys I worked with, and the job we did. V-2 division catapults on the USS Coral Sea. Some of them are no longer with us. We lived, bled and fed together as brothers. Aside from fatherhood, the badge I wear most proudly is that of being a U.S. Navy Veteran and Coral Sea Sailor.

    Very nicely done Will and thank you for your service.

    For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

    For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.

    The RF-8G's or crusaders had a caster type front main mount, and when we spotted them on the cat sometimes the wheel would get sideways. So we'd have to "pushback" the plane far enough he could use his engine to re align. It was rare to do a pushback, but the crusaders were notorious for this due to the design of the landing gear.

    The American AA-1A I used to fly long ago had one too....but then I never did a cat shot in it! Sure could turn on a dime though.

    Very nice. Video brought back memories. Though I can't remember the names of all my old bud's, I can picture their faces. Thanks for sharing this.

    Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I fear no evil,
    for You are with me; Your rod and Your staff, they comfort me.

    You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; You have anointed
    my head with oil; My cup overflows. (New American Standard Bible)
