Horseboss, I was suppossed to go to the Forrestal and a friend swapped with me so he could reenlist tax free. He was trapped below decks quite awhile. I was with Vap-61 and we changed to what ever carrier was on the line, mostly Enterprise and Constellation. We lost a destroyer during SEATO operations, the Evans zigged when it should have zagged and the Austalian aircraft carrier cut it in half in the middle of the night. They towed it to Vietnam and used it for a helo pad. We picked up the survivors early the next morning.
