          There used to be a Red book and a White book (year dependent), but my memory fades me right now. Are you decoding the VIN or trying to read the fender tag?

                          Top Gun, I liked it there as short of a time as I was there. I hear the luckily part.... I was mostly on Nimitz, both when she was on the East coast and then, 10 years later on her 20th birthday, a Westpac.

                              Certainly see more of the world, ...and a wider variety of people!! Experiences I definitely would never have had otherwise.

                              The deck of a carrier is pretty much the ultimate drag strip!! :D .....And thank you for your service as well!!!

                                    Hello fellow wing nut!!!
                                    Security Forces guy, I see. I'm not familiar with 722. Is that something in Admin?

                                    I was stationed at RAF Greenham Common in missile radio and radio relay maintenance (304X4). Also stationed in Jacksonville Arkansas as an Officer Recruiter (8R000). I didn't go in until '84.
