I was in Electric Shop and Engine build up during my servicewith FASRON-885. During this time FASRON-885 was closed down and it became FASRON-116. I have been looking for Glen Slick (Store Keeper) for a number of years who was a close friend. Also Mc Laughton who was a First Class Yeoman. Mac was a good friend and I sure would like to know where he is today. In 1953 I shipped out to VF-152, CAG15 where I served aboard USS Yorktown for one cruise..." [21NOV2002]
