Chris Timco - Graduated June 1968
While in high school in 1967 I joined the US Navy Reserves - home base, NAS Grosse Ile,
Michigan, USA. It was decommissioned in 1969.
October 1968 I went active duty. First on NAS Grosse Ile, Michigan.
Then January 1969 I was transferred to the US Navel Base, Treasure Island
San Francisco Bay, California.
April 1, 1969 I was transferred to
Naval Air Station (NAS) Agana Guam
To October 1970. I was in barracks 16. Attached to the Operations division
with Chief Alves and Chief Willie Williams.
I replaced AZ2 (Aviation Maintenance Adminstrationman)
Mercer Cleland and Tony Wolf (AZ3)
I spent my time working on Yellow Sheets in the logging engine hours and maintenance tracking in the
maintenance department of aircraft Grumman HU16 and Helicopters UH34 and Constellation C131
However, I was on the Grumman HU16s. Thought they were able to land in water. I never had the opportunity to do so.
I became a aircrew member on the search and rescue airplane HU16 seaplane. Fortunately,
we had no real rescues. Just one transport of an Ponape islander back to his home island to die. In route from Taiwan our plane got his by lightning during a storm and the nose cone got burned out - that is where is radar is and we had issues getting back to NAS Agana, Guam.
Obviously I got back.
