Decklog by Rebecca Rarey on Saturday, June 11, 2011 at 09:56 I watched as the SARA entered Mayport on Oct.26,1966.I was there to meet my high school sweetheart (my husband). We have taken our daughters aboard while on summer vacations in Jacksonville. We were lucky to meet with a shipmate and his wife to go on a dependents' day cruise in Sept. 1990. I must say that was one of the most exciting days of my life. The flight ops were so incredible! It is sad that SHE cannot find a home as a museum. The SARA was a large part of our lives as many others will agree.

Just found you in the 1962 cruise book. My sister had saved my cruise book all these years. The pages are stuck together from the house fire (water), but 75% is legible.
I cannot scan the book because it crumbles, but I can take photos.
Chief Piacun,
What division were you in? I will look you up.
Anyone who was aboard during the 1962 cruise who might want a snapshot of a picture, let me know.

Decklog by Jim Dudley on Wednesday, June 01, 2011 at 08:56 The Navy announced the next carrier will be named John F. Kennedy..what does that do to the Kennedy project in RI. Any chance of reviving the Saratoga Museum effort to carry on the ships name as the Kennedy name will be around for a while.

Decklog by Gene Roth on Monday, May 30, 2011 at 23:14 Aboard Sept.65 to Dec.68 all in #1MMR.(Always Ready) as a MM2. How time passes when your having fun. I can't say those years were the best time of my life but they were interesting. The asbestos flew freely and the black oil was everywhere. For a kid that had never had to live 8 decks below the water line,it was a different world. The memories both good and bad live with me forever. Lots of great shipmates and travel. Six day war,two med cruises,Gitmo and Philidelphia.

Decklog by Lee McClure on Monday, May 30, 2011 at 10:24 Served 1964-1966 S-1 Division.

Decklog by Patrick Stranahan on Monday, May 30, 2011 at 08:33 Served on the Sara 65-67, OA Div. Would like to hear from any former shipmates.

Decklog by Charles Carnes on Friday, May 27, 2011 at 12:32 Served on Sara from July 1976 to Apr 78, E Div. Lots of great memories. Got broad sided in Med 77, did not feela thing.Fair winds Sara

Decklog by John on Friday, May 27, 2011 at 11:04 I don't know if I want to see the Sara again. Last time I stared at her through a chain link fence as she sat next to her red-headed step-sister the Forrestal. They both looked like empty hulks of metal with no life. That's not how I remember her when she won the Battle E in 1986. Sad sad sad. My wife thought I was crazy for shedding a few tears as we left. Life goes on shipmates.

Decklog by Ron George on Friday, May 27, 2011 at 00:46 To: Ed Griffin I sent you an E-Mail a few weeks ago RE: Sara log entry. no answer? Drop me a line at Ron

Decklog by Ron George on Friday, May 27, 2011 at 00:39 Hi! Jim
I was in Newport RI this past Sat.
to see her one last time. You can see her from the public road that goes past
the Sara.She looked tired and had a slight list to the starboard side. I was told she will be moved to Philadelphia by the end of June. Unless you are a VIP you can't get on base.Worth the trip you can see her as big as life.

Decklog by Kellie Vaughan on Thursday, May 26, 2011 at 20:51 My grandfather, Rex Vaughan, was a gunner's mate on the USS Saratoga CV-3 during WWII. I am looking for any information about him and his service. He has recently passed away and I am looking to know about his service. Thank you so much!!!

Decklog by Tom Lewis on Thursday, May 26, 2011 at 10:19 Hey John,
Yep. VA34 Blue Blasters. I was brown shirt, 61-63. We were in Cuba during the blockade. Our squadron was transported via air from Cecil Field to aboard the Independence. After being on the Independence for 2 weeks, we were then transported to the Enterprise. Slept on my plane more than my bunk. Didn't get your email. Try again if you would.

Decklog by Jim Dudley on Thursday, May 26, 2011 at 07:43 Served 72-75 Would love to see the ship one last time before it's scrapped..Does anyone know when the Navy plans on moving her? A mini reunion there at that time would be great!

Decklog by john kukta on Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at 18:39 hey,Tom; Figured it out.You were w/VA-34.Did you know Fertig PR1?E-mailed you but haven't heard from you yet!Take care!

Decklog by Gary Morin on Wednesday, May 25, 2011 at 16:21 Why cant all of you still come to rhode island ? just because we cant get on base? there are plenty of places to see her pull out in NEWPORT. plus its a great town with something for everyone. think about it
