We were re-arming every other day and refueling every third day for most of the latter half of 1972. When I first got to the ship, we were undermanned. For the first three months onboard, I was standing 6-hour, Port & Starboard Gunnery Liaison Officer (GLO) duty in CIC, and when not in CIC during daylight hours, I was manning the flight deck as one of 3 FDOs. Over the first six weeks onboard, I lost 15 lbs eating 4 � 5 meals a day. Long hours � YES. Overall, I served 23 years in the Navy, and OK City was my finest duty station by far. The memories are vivid in my mind to this day. Great ship � even greater crew. I retired from the Navy in October, 1989 as a Supply Corps Commander.
^^^ Today, I own and operate two small companies in central Florida: a Aerospace & Defense consulting company ( http://www.jholcombe.com ) and a biometrics technology company ( http://www.ambiometrics.com ).I�m single now, but have two lovely daughters that live here in FL � one in Jacksonville and one in Tampa; both are married, have one child and successful careers.
