The attached picture was taken at MCAS Iwakuni in 1970. That's me in the B/N seat of a VMA(aw)533 A6A. After I posted this picture to my Facebook page, my daughter posted "My Dad's cooler than your dad!" One of her friends replied, "My Dad was a pilot (Vietnam)." My daughter's response, "My Dad is a Marine." Her friends response, silence!
