OAKES, Monty ("The Earl of Oakes" or "Goddammit Monty) bumgouge@verizon.net "...I was a VP-9er in the 82-85 years. I am looking to 'resume comms" with anyone from the "good ol days". Missed my chance earlier to hook up with Dave Jackson and Fred Lozano. If anyone is in comms with them please relay my address. Does anyone remember Jim Small, Vic Risvedt, Mark Vanek, Dave Burris, Mick Kohler, "Nuclear Joe" Camalari, Todd Rahmes, "Checkride" Norman Marcotte, Mark Pisioneri, Ed Arcand, Gary Half, Gary Shaar, Tom Schuk, Tom Dean, Ray Fowler, Dave Eitel, John Aune, Gary "Bud" Weiser, "Habu" JT Brown, Dave Meader, Bob Seidel, Norma Just, Jon Dresel, Bob Mantei, Al Jorgenson, and "The Skull" Nick Burhans?? I have resumed comms with Maria Skala, Greg Zorbach and "Big Hutch" Hutchinson, but that is all so far. Does anyone remember the CDR Swain parking lot space "paint out" and the resulting JOPA?? Does anyone remember the panties in the Skipper's bed before his wife arrived on Okinawa, or when "Cub" Culbertson caught fire by his cigarette one night in the Hale Koa Hooch on Diego Garcia? What about Cub's "night" landing at Mogadishu, Somalia and the missing wing panel flight back to Diego? Whatever happened to ET Hutton and her mushroom pumps? Those were the days, weren't they. Just in case someone has a spare they are willing to part with, I am also willing to pay dearly for an old (new) squadron patch, circa CDR Jim Wyatt, with the modern eagle design clutching a harpoon in blue, gray and gold with a gray background. I unknowingly gave away my last one to a deserving AWAN in the ASWM aboard IKE in 1989. Thanx, Montford "The Earl" of Oakes or "Goddammit Monty" depending how well I was doing as NAVCOMM..."
