    I was not able to be home for Christmas 1968. I was on The French Riviera, around Cannes, France. No, I was not vacationing there. I was attached to a Navy Air Squadron deployed on The U.S. Navy aircraft carrier U.S.S. Forrestal CVA-59. We spent 5 months in the Mediterranean Sea, visiting seaports such as Athens, Istanbul, Barcelona, Naples, Valetta and a few more!! We didn’t get home until April, 1969. Christmas Eve I met the legendary one-armed bartender in a little bar in Golfe Juan, France .. then back to the boat to spend Christmas Day with 5,000 Sailors .. also away from home on Christmas Day. We all can’t be home for Christmas .. but some of us are there if only in our dreams!! MERRY CHRISTMAS
