My memories of a Holiday while serving on the CVA- Ticonderoga was witnessing the landing and recovery of the Apollo 16 Astronauts. I was also part of the recovery of Apollo 17, and Skylab.

I don't have many pictures of me during my life in the military. I regret that.

Thanksgiving in West Berlin was awesome. We had invited single soldiers to our house and had a huge feast. Thanksgiving in Korea meant eating in the DFAC and being served by officers in their blues.

The military life sure gave me a lot of opportunities and experiences.

It was 1956, after graduating from basic traininng,I was flying to Fort Rucker for training to be a Helicopter Crew Chief on thanksgiving day. It was my first flight in a aircraft packed with others going to this destination.
When we landed, we transferred to the base very hungry from this long day of travel. When we went to the mess hall all the dinner for thanksgiving was gone and all operations for that day was all over. The mess sSargent apologized for this and said all that he had was hot dogs. Needless to say that was thanksgiving dinner that day.
