Served on Forrestal from Feb 1964 - March 1965. We were assigned to S1 Division. I remember Ma1 Pete Gomez, MASN Barry Sykes, Bill Rudeck MA3, MA1 Cockburn. I have some pics of our machine room and some of the guys.

Ah Forrestal, the best sea duty station during my career. I was onboard from 90-91, long enough to do work-ups and sail on her sunset cruise. I worked in OZ Division in the Operations Department. I worked with a bunch of spooks (Intelligence Specialists) and was the LPO of four other DPs maintaining the TAMPS system where pilots would plan there missions. Sad to see FID and Sara in the shape they are in and knowing FIDs fate will be delivered in Brownsville, TX. Great memories!!
