Sept 78 to Nov 78. USS Forrestal (CV-59) homeport Mayport, FL from Nov 78 to June 82. S-5 div YN Nov 78 to July 80. S-1 div and SUPO YN from July 80 to June 82. Played banjo and guitar for "Gear Adrift" band aboard ship. Active reserve June 82 to Sept 83. Honorably discharged Sept 83.
Would love to hear from shipmates who remember "Gear Adrift"
and our impromptu concerts on the hangar deck and foc'sle.
Performing in the CPO mess on "surf and turf" night was the greatest! "Gear
Adrift" performed at the USO canteens that were set up in the Med as well as on the
ferry boats to and from liberty. Does anyone remember the "FID Squid Talent Show" in Palermo, Sicily in 1980?
