Premission to come aboard
« on: December 03, 2008, 04:32:57 AM »
I sailed on the CVR form March 1967 until June 1970.  I still remember it like it was yesterday and I have been proud to say I served on the CVR.  I was an FTM assigned to "air aft" and WDE in Combat.  I just contacted Gill Gillispie who was in "air aft" when I sailed on the CVR.  I was sorry to see that Don Comar had passed away.  He was the LPO in "air aft" when I reported aboard.  My first day on the CVR he had me make the coffee.  He told me where to get the water and not to waste any.  I was really careful and did not spill a drop.  Don could not wait for the light to turn red on the coffee pot so he could get his coffee.  As soon as it turned red he pored himsefl a cup and took a swig and spit it out as soon as he tasted it.  I had made it out of salt waater.  Don neglected to tell me the cold water facuet was salt water.
