Jacksonville was my home town, so always glad to be stationed at Cecil or Jax. Served two tours at NAS Cecil: 1970-1973 at AIMD as ECM Shop Supervisor. 1975-1978 in VA-46 as Maintenance Control Chief with deployments aboard the USS John F. Kennedy. ATCS: Retirement ceremony in front of Apollo Capsule in the Aviation Museum at NAS Pensacola, October 31, 1980.

I was at Cecil Field from 1974 - 1977. I was an Air Traffic Control Tower Supervisor. Without question, the best years of my life and if I could go back and do it again and trade those three years for whatever years I have left, I would leave today!!! AC2 Dan Perkins

Was stationed with VA-46 from 1960-Nov. 1962. Was deployed to the Med three times in that period of time. Left the squadron after the heat was off from the Cuban Missle Crisis. Enjoyed my time at Cecil, Field and aboard the USS FDR, CVA-42 and the Shangri-La, CVA 38. Would sure like to hear from anyone from 46, or other squadrons or Cecil.
