    .

    June 1980, so 37 years for me also coming up.

    I just found one of my best friends from San Diego on "together we served . com" recently.
    Great web site if you guys want to check for old buddy's??

    Here's what I did, I was an operator & maintenance technician for a big ass radiation/radar detector.
    On my ship we were in a small cubby hole, we needed to listen to pulse width & scan cycle,
    so we needed a quiet place to listen & count without all the noise screwing up our analysis.

    MCAS El Toro a toxic waste dump of TCE exposure . Sadly the VA won't recognize the health issues . I even handled TCE in my armory

    Its a shame the MCAS El Toro became a an EPA site.I was TAD there for Truck drivers school.and with all the fuel leaks,Aircraft cleaner.and Fire fighter foam,I`m not really surprised.

    Lots of 55 gal drums are buried in shallow pits thru out the base !!

    also know that TCE is nasty , back when I was using it in my Armory and if any of it touched your skin it was like being burned by scalding hot water . Also any skin contact immediately turned your skin a yellowish orange color . Rubber chemical gloves couldn't keep you safe and your BDU's would literally dissolve upon contact

    My Dad served on the USS Enterprise back in 1945. Actually met MacArthur in Japan. Even back then it was an awesome carrier.
