I was in US Navy Recruit Training at Great Lakes when this happened. Our DIs said "The good news is most of the harrassment and haranguement common in boot camp will go away. The bad news is your training will be compressed and sleep time is cancelled."

Me, I was on the USS Enterprise when that happened attached to VF-96. We were in Sasebo, Japan and we had immediate orders to steam up to North Korea which we did. I worked the flight deck and I remember that it was real cold especially when we turned into the wind to launch our planes. Those of us who work the flight deck cut the sleeves off of sweaters to wear over our heads to try and keep warm.
Our original mission was to go back to Vietnam and the South China Sea and apparently there was not that much cold weather gear on board. Parley
