US Navy 1961-1964.  Served at Whiting Field, Milton, FLA as a cook striker while waiting for tech school at NAS Memphis, Tn.  After tech school was assigned to AEWBARRONPAC (Airborne Early Warning Barrier Squadron, Pacific) home based at Barbers Point, HI.  Flew missions as flight technician (ATR3) from Midway Island.  The mission was the Pacific extension of the DEW (Distant Early Warning) line which watched for enemy attack from the northern hemisphere.  We took off from Midway, flew NNE until the Aleutian Islands on radar, turned around and went back to Midway.  About 14 hours in the air.  Attained rate of ATR2 two days before discharge!

  Scott, I believe the Vets PTSD forum on yuku would be helpful to you. Vet's benefits and the processes is the focus. Try this link http://nvfv.yuku.com/directory

Yes, this is a good one.  I was able to get a lot of great info about my benefits.  I would give you the link but we are in our RV and I can't link to their site.

Search "Veterans Benefits Network Forums".  It will be the site "Vets.Yuku.com".

Hi Ken,

I know how you feel. I was only in for 4 active and 2 inactive reserves but feel the same. I was on two Fletcher Class Destroyers and on the Commissioning Crew of a Charles Adams Class Destroyer.

The ironic thing is our son was the DCA on the USS Kidd, DDG-993! He's still in after 26 years as an O-6. I got out as an E-5. He has done what I wished I could have done. :-)

4 years or 26 years, it is all the same.  You volunteered to serve and I thank you and your son for that.
