Thanks to JD for this opportunity,to reconnect with long lost shipmates whom we worked along side during war and peacetime. Who enlisted and were proud to serve, commiting a few years of our youth for decades of remembering great experiences to this great counrty of ours. Americans should all be thankful of the freedoms we take for granted and thank a veteran in light of what is happening in the around the world with revolutions for democracy.
I am proud to have served on the the greatest ship in the United States Navy,CVA/CV 60. A great experience and life long friends made,unique having made both a Med and a West Pac Cruise within 2 years I served on the Sara.

Decklog by Mike Caban on Tuesday, March 01, 2011 at 00:26 In 1966 I was an RM3 onboard the USS Cone DD866. We were on a Med cruise and we refueled from the Saratoga somewhere in the Atlantic just before reaching our first port of call in Rota Spain. While we were manning the lines during refueling the crews on the flight deck threw bolts at us, and hitting quite a few of our crew. The same thing happened to other ships that traveled with us, including the North Hampton. When we reached Rota, several sailors on the tin cans and on the NH found some of the Sarastoga sailors and returned the favor - fist to face. Almost everywhere we went, the Saratoga's crew were hated for the cheap shots and arrogant attitudes.
Just wanted you all to know that we never forgot.
What a bunch of scumbags you had on board in the mid 60s...
