HIGHAM, AMSC(AW) Ronald J. highamrj@caewwl.spear.navy.mil "...I started my Navy career with VR-51 at the now disestablished NAS Glenview, Illinois. Joined the World Famous Woodpeckers of VP-49 in September 1981 and made two deployments, NAS Sigonella, Sicily (How did the Marines Bulldog get VP-49 shaved in it?) and NS Rota, Spain/ NAF Lajes, Azores, Portugal (George Crook rest in peace)and transfered to VP-30. I was a member of the finest airframes workcenter from August 1985 to January 1989. (Thanks AMSC Marage for teaching me how an airframes workcenter should be ran). From there the tailhook Navy got me and have been there ever since. My first "hook" experience was with VFA-137 at old NAS Cecil Field, Jacksonville, Florida from May 1989 to December 1992. Made deployments on USS Coral Sea and USS Forrestal. (yep I missed the P-3) From there I left aviation and went to the surface/Gator Navy at ACU-4 at NAB Little Creek. Working with the LCAC and the surface mentality was different but I did meet and work with some fine people. February 1996 I cheked into VAW-125 where I picked up Chief. ( I have more than one person to thank for that. To the "kids" that worked for me in the line shack - THANKS AGAIN.) I made deployments on USS Enterprise and USS Eisenhower. I am now on the staff at COMAEWWINGLANT in Norfolk. I'll have 21 when this is over but I'm still having fun and my wife and kids still support me. I see another sea tour on the horizon. Besides someone has to get my girls through college. To everyone I've served with over the years - thanks for the memories...." [10JAN2001]
