1965 thru 1967, I was in HC2 det66 USS America (CV-66)

1968 to 1970, I was attached to HC-2 Lakehurst, NJ. Squadron provided SAR support to East coast carriers and an occasional West PAC. I made the 1970 FDR (CVA-42) Med cruise. we flew UH-2A/Bs

May67 to Oct68, I was the communications guy for the squadron. I handled all the traffic between HC-2 headquarters and the USS Forrestal when the big fire happened. It was a real experience! Really enjoyed serving with HC-2 after doing a bit of a stint on the USS Zellars (DD777) chasing Russian subs from the fjords of Norway! Phil RM2

1967 - 1969 I worked in the Mainteance Office. Really enjoyed the FAM flights down the Jersey Coast

1970 HC-2 asg USS Shangri-La (CVS-38) world cruise, vietnam
