Navy days

One of the sailors that worked for me contacted me last week. A bunch of them have a yahoo group. I worked in the Operations dept on the USS Independence (CV-62) from 88-91 and I was the OI Asst. Division Officer. The Operation Specialists (OS) who worked in OI division handled ship navigation via electronic means, operated the various radar scopes to track ships and aircraft, directed aircraft to intercept ships and aircraft. As a LTjg I stood watches on the bridge and in the Combat Direction Center (CIC on smaller ships) and worked with these sailors on a daily basis. This group is mostly guys from when the ship was in Philadelphia Naval Shipyard to San Diego and the Westpac cruise to the Indian Ocean and Desert Shield in the Persian Gulf.
