    All the EA-6 aircraft are gone now. They were replaced with the Modified F-18 Hornets....the EA-18G Growlers.

    That's a great photo. My brother flew F/A 18s and was on the Lincoln's first deployment. He was out of LeMoore though and I think the Lincoln was in Alameda then and later came to Everett.

    I was never stationed at NAS Lemoore, just went to Special Weapons Loading Training there for a few weeks. Was a nice base. NAS Whidbey was my favorite base though. Most people talk about how great the area is, which is true, but the base ( actually 2 including the seaplane base) was well designed and had a great housing area.

    Rough life in the infantry. I was lucky...as a crewman, when I landed in the helo, hot shower and decent meal everyday. After Vietnam I went into fixed wing aircraft squadrons as an ejection seat mech...missed the helos, close net group. Officers and enlisted meshed more than in fighter or attack squadrons.
