    We only made landfall twice, both times to Da Nang, once to re-barrel our 5"-54's and again for battle damage repairs. we also got to see a lot of take-offs and landing's when we pulled carrier watch, "Yankee Station". pilot rescue duty. anyway, welcome home, and thank you for your service.

I really wish I could provide pixs, I took some last night with my smart phone (that's an oxymoron), and with my digital camera, but had zero luck downloading to this site. the instructions are confusing to me and if someone could make it EASY to perform that task I will try again, otherwise, skip it. unsuccessful endeavors on computers only serve to piss me off, then I quit. anyway, thanks for the info, that's really cool.

    to the forums from SE Indiana. First I would like to thank you for your service at a time when our military was not appreciated. I got my draft notice and was classified III-A..married with a child and one on the way and was never called. My cousin was KIA on August 18 1968. I'm old school when it comes to guns of all kinds..don't even get me started on smart phones and other gadgets. That is a very nice old Smith you have there. I see you mentioned the Postal Service so I have a reason to post a pic of my Colt Bankers Special in 38 S&W caliber..I carried one of these when I ran on the mail trains back in the mid 60's with the Railway Mail Service. We do like pics so when the opportunity arises I take advantage and post. This is the best and friendliest site on the net...a lot of info from folks who really know their stuff. Again welcome to the site and for your service. Be safe and God bless. Dick. Name:  100_1497.jpg

    hello and welcome to the forum from PA. Sounds like you have one of those "carried a lot, shot a little" guns that I also have. When you do get up and running with posting some pics please feel free to post any guns you have, we like them all.
