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 was on the TICO when the North Koreans captured the USS Pueblo. We steamed full speed all night to get up to North Korea. It was really cold in the sea of Japan.

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.

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.

A big “Thank You” to all who served. My father was Don Wallen (d. 1992), and he served from 1962 to 1968. He was part of VF-53 during the Gulf of Tonkin incident. I don’t know anything about his time in the navy and would like to talk with anybody who knew him. Best Regards, Wade Wallen (214-477-3287).

Do you recall the Aft Stb gun mount misfire that happened some time in March or April of our Far east Cruise of 1963
As 1st Division JO at the time, I was the safety Officer at the check sight. The gun was smoothly tracking the target, Boatswain Mate PO3 H.S. Horace, the mount Captain Loaded and at the last second the the gun lurched off and the round fired into the water about 2 or 300 yd or so off our stb beam. My helmet with sound suppressor was nocked off in the lurch.
I suffer progresing hearing loss as a result and need some verification of the event for the VA.
