Decklog by chester evitt on Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 20:32 OUR GREY LADY
SHE WAS LONG AND WIDE,BOW TO THE WIND.
SHE WAS TALL AND HEAVY A TRUE FIGHTER TO THE END.

Decklog by Junge, J.M. on Tuesday, January 31, 2012 at 15:40 Looking for infomation on the USS SARATOGA CVA-60. I served in VF-103 as flightdeck AMH Trouble shooter. I've contracted Parkinson's and the V.A. says that no carrier can get VA disabilty because we never got closer than 100 miles from shore. AGENT ORANGE. Looking for logs or records that we may of been closer to shore during the WestPAc tour. I know "Yankee Station" was about 100 miles. Thanking you in advance. jamesmjunge@yahoo.com

Decklog by Patricia Clark on Thursday, January 26, 2012 at 14:49 My first husband Michael Memmo served on the Saratoga in the early seventies. Unfortunately he passed away in may 2009. I filed for widow compensation due to agent orange exposure when he served in the helicopter squadron, but I was denied because there was no proof he served in country , even though they transported drums of the chemical, and also picked up wounded and dead troops in country. Does anyone else have the same experience and if so, I would be interested in hearing from you. My email address is triciamm@hotmail.com. Mike suffered from heart problems and diabetes, both of which are on the list of diseases known to be caused from exposue to agent orange. Thank you.
