Comments: : I joined VA-12 right after a Med cruise and made the work ups to the last Indy cruise, but spent my time TAD to VA-174 for that cruise. I spent most of my time in VA-12 in Corrosion Control. I loved painting the Logo on the aircraft. I've completed a couple of A-7E model aircraft with VA-12 decals. I made the work ups for the first Ike cruise, but my time in the real Navy was over. I got out and went into the Navy Reserve as a "TAR" (active duty Reserve). Full time shore duty except for the annual active duty for the real reservists (week-end warriors) when we would go out for just two weeks and in those two weeks I'd remember why I got out of the real Navy and went to TAR duty. I eventually retired and never made a cruise, only left the States during the work ups.
