|Naval Air Station Alameda, CA on approach|
gone but not forgotten.
I left Alameda in 1963 and in 1966 I was back, this time in a squadron based in good ole Alameda. I was fortunate to be able to join the ranks of Enlisted Flight Crews and saw this sight many times from the air. My total time spent at Alameda is about nine years, half of my Navy life, it's almost like a hometown now. Of course the base was closed some time ago, all that's left are the ghosts.

gone into the sunset, both of us.
