Seth, that's what I would certainly call a Bucket List item. Congrats and good luck!!! As you've seen from my recent post, I have a soft spot for TRs !!!
Thanks David. Just checked your info; where and what did you fly? ASW or air-sea rescue? To this day I wear Navy wings of gold in my jacket lapels, often asked what I flew, and I answer: I didn't drive our aircraft, I drove an airbase, U.S.S. Intrepid on which I was qualified OOD underway, according to Capt. Forsyth Massey, my C.O., the only lawyer/legal officer of a large combatant ever to qualify underway. I stood regular OOD watches on the bridge. In fact Capt Massey was sufficiently pleased with my performance that when we went to general quarters/battle stations he designated me JOOD on the bridge; our navigator, Cdr Rieger, was OOD. Intrepid was CVA-11 when I served aboard, later became CVS-11.
