And old shipmate from my first military branch found a photo that brings back memories.
The helo's name was VALERIE. Hotel-Victor 137..
We were part of the Standing Naval NATO forces at the time... (Brits, Canadians, Germans, Norwegians, Dutch, US and Belgians.
We had been all over the North Sea and North Atlantic since early 1981.
Because Carter was the prez the Russians had been screwing with us something fierce and we had to let them get away with it.
By the end of 80 and the first 20 days of 81 they knew Ronald Reagan was coming into office and the tables turned.
This photo must have been taken from one of the Brit helos in the task-force.
