    Greg was looking for pictures on Veterans Day, I had not viewed his request until today. This was taken on either Northern or Southern SAR off the Vietnam coat in 1968.

      Thanks for posting Dick. What are you looking through there?

      Greg, I was a Petty Officer 3rd class on a US Navy destroyer. My rate was Quartermaster and my primary duty at sea was ship's navigation. In this photo, I am looking through a pelorus (basically a telescope mounted on top of a gyrocompass) used for obtaining a bearing to a fixed point on land to transfer to a nautical chart to compute ship's position. No GPS back then.

      Dick, that is impressive, I know there are ways of finding out where you are when on water, but I'm afraid I would be lost all the time.
