Alert: I have recently been having problems receiving emails. If you have recently sent one to me here, I am not ignoring you. I am in the process of correcting this problem. I will answer them when I can.
Feel free to explore each stage of my long and rewarding flying career via the "Table of Contents" with its red ( "← you are here") indicators listed on the left side of this and all following pages, or by the navigational arrows (← Previous ♠ Next →) on the bottom of each page. Also most images here are thumbnails, so double click them for the expanded version.
Or if like many visitors, your primary interest involves the Vietnam War and my F-4B flying experiences there, you may jump to my "relatively" mild, 1st combat cruise, or my decidedly much more difficult 2nd combat cruise immediateley following my TOPGUN graduation, including Operations Linebacker I & II in 1972 - '73 to finally end the war.

All Naval Aviators would repeat this quote often, with a knowing smile.
