I was a catapult operator in ‘61-’62 on CVA-42 (FDR), which was scrapped in late ‘70s I think. It was an emotional event to see a pic of the ship and an article saying it was going to be scrapped.

When in the Med. Sea, we served along with the first three carriers on that list, and maybe the fourth.
