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

I was also aboard the Sara exactly six months before I was born on commissioning day in the Brooklyn Shipyard, as my Dad was an EM1 plankowner.

Decklog by Sammy King on Tuesday, August 16, 2011 at 15:00 Shipmate Dudley your facts are correct facts, but one fact that you failed to mention is that the lions share of those 41 reunions you refer to were hosted, and conducted by "our" CV-3 predecessors, who "handed off" this Association to "us" and there were a few conditions attached in that hand-off. None of which was an obligation to hold so many reunions on the west coast. As I said in an earlier posting there is a "procedure" for reunion site selection and a fact is that each year the reunion is attended by shipmates from all over the US, and some from your home state of CT, as well as MA, NY,NJ and a ton from PA. As I suggested in an earlier posting I would be most happy to explain the procedure to you and perhaps you would be willing to "chair" a reunion in one of the areas you mention. I for one would love to see New England in the fall. So maybe by next years reunion in Nashville, you could put together a presentation for a New England location and those present at the business meeting could vote on it. I would further point out that the only requirement for the voting process everyone has to have a current paid up dues card so it is a realatively simple process.
And I too only wish to point out some "facts" in fairness to our shipmates who also may not understand how the process works. And there is no other motive for pointing these things out. "fair winds and following seas..."
