Ok, guys dig out those ship pics and let everyone see them!

I'll start with this one I found on line, it means a lot to me.

This is the Tarawa at North Island in 1976.  The next ship is the USS Coral Sea CV-43 and the last one is the Constellation CV-64.

Why is this special to me?  It's one of only 2 pics of my First ship - USS Coral Sea - and my Last  ship - USS Tarawa - together.  At the time of this picture being taken, I was stationed just up the highway at NAS Miramar attached to my First squadron - VC-7.

If the Connie had been the America, I would have had all three of my ships in one pic.

Great pic!!  I love the older pictures of her because she had my favorite antenna on her, the RLPA at the top of the Aft Mast.  I used that antenna so much!!

I got a new iPad and was searching for wallpaper for the screen, when I found this color pic on the Coral Sea tribute site.
