Decklog by David Proctor on Saturday, September 10, 2011 at 21:19 During the yard period of 1973/74 there was an asbestos ripout. I was under the impression that it was a complete ripout. However, recently i am doubtful. According to other shipmates there was still asbestos aboard in the eighties.

Decklog by alan armstrong on Friday, September 09, 2011 at 21:43 THAT FIRE IS OUT BOYS! THANKS TO A LOT OF VOLUNTEERS AS WELL AS PAID FIREFIGHTERS. AND I DIDN'T FALL OFF THE ROOF.ON MY WAY HOME TODAY I WAS INTRODUCED TO THE NEW FIRE. IT'S TO THE EAST, I'M NOT IN IT'S PATH. NEAR THIS NEW FIRE WAS A MAN, STANDING NEXT TO HIS TRUCK, WATCHING AS THE FIRE ADVANCED TOWARDS HIS RANCH, HIS HOME.
AT A SHELTER IN TOWN A CROWD GATHERS ROUND AS AN UPDATED ADDRESS LIST IS NAILED TO THE WALL. ONLY SILENCE STANDS TALL. WEARY AND SCARED IN THIS CRAMPED PLACE EVACUEES READ WITH WORRY ON THEIR FACE. SILENT STILL THE CROWD BEGINS TO PART AS AN OLDER LADY WALKS FROM UP FRONT, HEAD HELD HIGH BUT NO HOPE LEFT IN HER HEART. A YOUNG BOY, HAIR LONGER THAN HERS,TAKES HER ARM AND HELPS HER TO HER COT. BESIDE A COUNTRY ROAD A GROWN MAN SITS NEXT TO HIS TRUCK, SOBBING. THESE SCENES ARE REAL BOYS. MY SENSE OF HUMOR? I DON'T KNOW. EVER BEEN UP CLOSE TO A RAGING WILDFIRE? IT'S LOUD! IT'S HOT! I ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT WHAT WOULD SCARE ME WOULD KILL AN ORDINARY MAN. I'M JUST AN ORDINARY MAN BUT FEAR TOOK A BACK SEAT TO THE SADNESS I FELT FOR THAT LADY AND THAT RANCHER. TOMORROW, BECAUSE I, WHILE WRITING THIS, HAVE GOTTEN SO PISSED, I'M GONNA WADE OFF INTO THAT FIRE AND I'M NOT COMING OUT UNTIL IT'S HISTORY OR I'M BACK IN THE TRAUMA WARD.
HEY! WAIT. WHILE I'M HERE AND NOW THAT I'VE CALMED DOWN LET ME RUN THIS BY YOU GUYS. RECENTLY I HAD A THOUGHT. I KNOW, I KNOW. LET ME FINISH. I PROPOSE WE RENT THE FIGHTING COCK FOR A FEW WEEKS, TOW HER OUT TO SEA AND HAVE AN EXTENDED, ONE OF A KIND REUNION. I'LL BRING THE CARDS.

Decklog by Clifford "Spike" Smith on Friday, September 09, 2011 at 07:12 I served with the A-6E SWIP VA-35 Attack Squadron onboard the USS Saratoga from 90-93. I was stationed at NAS Oceana VA. Beach, Va. and our Squadron was attached to the Sara. I was originally a AQ (Avionics Fire Control Tech) and later an AT (Avionics Tech). I absolutely loved serving onboard with our nations finest young men (at the time) and I would like to reconnect with any of those that recall myself. The Sara made such an impact on my life and I dont let go for a week without recalling my time onboard her. Contact me at smith.clifford@att.net
