Hi Charley,

I was a Navy carrier/land pilot who flew over 100 electronic intelligence missions in the Far East during the Cold War during the late 1950s--sometimes we had to go into enemy airspace.

Later I was head communications and top secret control officer for Mayport Naval Station (also a Naval Air Station) near Jacksonville, Florida, where I did cryptographic work.

Then in 1962 I was a Russian Naval Interpreter during the Cuban Blockade operations on different destroyers, oilers, and cruisers, where I turned around several Russian and other ships carrying nuclear missiles into Cuba. I also vectored several Naval aircraft on their intelligence missions over Cuba.

I plan to digitize my Russian interpreter notes since they should be declassified by now.

That is about it!

Anybody out there besides me and Brooke Shannon spent any time in intelligence work? Armed forces, CIA, whatever?
