Dallas and I went to the USS Hornet museum today. Technically, it was my last duty station. Dallas and I wandered around on our own for a while, taking pictures but you couldn't go up to the island without supervision.
so we tagged along on a tour in progress. This guy was stationed on the Hornet as aircrew but I was really impressed that he was on the USS Forrestal. I can't imagine going through the days of fire and exploding ordinance and nearly losing a ship.
I tried (and failed) to be a quiet tour taker. Sorry about that, Dallas.
