 Additional Information
What are you doing now:
RECEIVED A CERTIFICATE FOR PHIBEX-58 FAST LANDING FORCE; ATLANTIC. This was a great operation,
It was the first time in history, which a force of such magnitude was landed by helicopters from bases on USS Navy Aircraft Carriers many miles at sea, mine, being the USS Valley Forge.

Enjoying my retirement, and connecting with old friends.
