WALSH, AT1 Mike Retired mike.j.walsh@lmco.com "...Started my aviation career with VAW-111 DET 1 May 1972. Stationed at NAS North Island, San Diego, California and deployed with USS Ranger on WesPac till June 1973. Then crossed to VA-115 on the USS Midway till July 1975. Anyway, made a career of the Navy, and retired in 1997 (Broken Service). VAW-111 was actually a great time because I was 19 years old, and too stupid to know any better. Now that I know better, I liked it better when I was stupid. If any one is still alive, drop me a e-mail someday. Chances are I will not remember you, but then again it was 1972-1973..."
