The above portrait was taken aboard USS George Washington CVN 73 in September-October of 1992, during the initial shakedown cruise with the Air Wing Embarked. I was at that time in Tactical Electronic Warfare Squadron One Four Zero, The Patriots. It is the last formal portrait in my Service Dress Blue Uniform. Handsome devil, wasn’t I?

    My son served at Stumps too………… I went to visit him out there. At first, he said it was really pretty, then he said it was pretty plain. I’d have to agree with his second assessment………
