¬†Boot-Camp in Orlando taught me the Naval-Basic’s , But My Learning @ N.A.T.T.C.(Naval Air-Technical-Training-Command) In Millington Tenn Showed Me How To Work Around And Maintain Aircraft. My First Tour There As An E-1 Was For 6 Months .. The Aircraft ¬†Used As A Model There Were A-3 Jets , Since Retired And Used In Vietnam . John McCain Was Shot-Down In One , But That’s Another Story! I Was Taught Aviation-Basics(How Jet Blast Kills , Etc.) And Also How To Get Around Using Support-Equipment(Tow Tractors , Power Carts , Etc. ) , And Believe It Or Not , Jet Engines Are Rather Loud! So We Were Taught Various Hand-Signals To Use On The Flight-Line. My Stay There , Was Quite The Adventure For Sure , So Much More Next-Time…
