My father Donald F Johnson was stationed aboard the Ticonderoga. That was his last duty ship. He went ashore in 1971 and passed away in 1972. If anyone remembers him I would like to hear from you. He was a Chief Petty Officer if that helps.

Hello again all you "Tico Tigers" 
Enjoyed surfing the site reading many of the posts from other shipmates, some I was stationed with and of course many from other times aboard the Great "Lady"
USS Ticonderoga CVA-14 one great warship.  I'm amazed at all the carriers named after presidents and big shots. . .people who know how to get us into war and have no clue how to get us out.  Oh how times have changed.  None the less we live in a great country and I've posted this before if I were to join the Navy again I'd serve aboard a carrier anytime. 
Go Navy

Many fond memories of my shipmates.  Sleeping quarters in the Forward Emergency Diesel Compartment.  What a way to sleep when it was lite off.  Liberty in Japan.  Late night card games when sailing back to the USA.  Great memories.

My Father was Edwin Martin Oyarzo Jr. and served on the Ticonderoga in the 50s or 60s. I would sure love to know if anyone here knew him and could tell me about him. Pictures would be great. My father passed away in 1973

Thanks

Did two cruises on the "TerribleTi" to Tonkin Gulf, Vietnam withVA-52, beginning in 1966 and ending in 1967. Worked on the flight deck as Plane Captain on our A-1 Skyraiders. I was at Sturgis, S.D. Motorcycle rally this past summer and met a green shirt who was on the flight deck near me during night operations when a hung bomb broke loose from a landing Skyraider, and came bouncing down the flight deck, scaring the hell out of us. And to the gentleman in the previous post in VF-191, I remember that squadron...... Hud'n Hud'n!

I am curious if my diagrams, of the chilled water system, were used on future boats? I submitted hundreds of SNAPS II Warrantee Guarantee Reports for the Rico and used for the Yorktown... Hope they served you all well. Salute!

Although I did not know him personally, one of my most significant memories of that cruise was of the day that we lost LCDR Estocin during the last combat day (26 April 1967) of our last line period of the entire cruise. Not that all KIA/MIA pilots don't deserve recognition, to be honored and remembered, but his loss coming on the last combat day of that cruise...heavy. If there's any consolation, he was awarded the MOH for his actions on that day and on 20 April. God bless, God speed and honor to all lost and missing.

My grandfather, Roger Morse, was on this ship. I recently came upon this information. He lived in Indiana, but was stationed in Virginia. I remember his stories when I was younger. He taught me my first words (my mother was NOT HAPPY). He passed away April 11, 1998 of a massive heart attack. I was 6 months pregnant with my first child. My children never got the chance to meet him. My heart still breaks every day. I’m hoping someone here will remember him. I’d like to know more about his time in the Navy.

Thank you.

Best people I ever had the pleasure of being around, was on the Tico. I try to stay in touch with who I can, for all those I was on Facebook with I'm not on there anymore, go to Instagram. I still consider them my brothers for the rest of my life always will, unless they try to take my dog!

The TICO was my first duty station after boot-camp. It was quite an experience coming from South Carolina to California. It didn't take long to have a new family of brothers on board the TICO. My best friend was the boxing champ on board the TICO, his name was Wilbur Adams. I will never forget when we had the family members on board the ship for a cruise, quite an experience. I was assigned to the Repair division's welding and sheet metal shop and the one job I remember most was to reconstruct the Chapel. Little did I know then that I would become a Pastor later in life. After leaving the Navy I continued to work as a Weldor until I retired.

Was onboard during USS MADOXX/USS TURNER JOY activities.  VF-53 lost LT T.B. Fallon on a cold Cat Shot as Tico sailed past.  Ejection seat failure?  First experience watching a fellow shipmate and division office buried at sea. 

We also lost our CS1 (?) during flight ops and the COD was parked in the Heavy's spot.  He walked into the prop and instantly killed.  His shipmate was unaware of this and found him in the Mess Deck chill box!  Sad.

Later in life VF-53 held a reunion in Las Vegas where I reunited with shipmates and PN2 Herald Dolin, Mr Used Car!  Not long after Herald passed away.

I met my division Chief, PNC Goo during one of my forays to Hawaii on Uncle's dime.  He too has passed.

Fond memories of sleeping on forward cat's where it was a bit cooler during the uptempo ops.  Was expertly indoctrinated to Yokosuka by the squadron GM's and marveled at the tempo and pace of war.
