This is great USS Oriskany (CVA-34) website; I really enjoyed all your efforts to bring us historical information and pictures…
I went aboard the Oriskany in (August I believe) 1963, in Yokosuka, Japan, and I was assigned to V-1 Division, Fly 1…
I had several assignments aboard the Oriskany: I worked as a Blue Shirt Plane Pusher; Flight Deck Phone Talker in Fly 1 Fly 2 and Fly 3; Fly 1 Elevator Operator top side; Flight Deck Control Phone Talker worked for Tom Cassidy (LCDR) Air Craft Handling Officer (ACHO)…
I departed for Discharge from the Oriskany in September of 1966 while in port in Subic Bay, Philippines.
