This was the most memorable experience of my younger years and was my start in the electronics field. I worked in private industry for 22 years and then for DOD a total of 25 years (Military Aircraft flight computers of various types). I definitely credit my Navy ATN training as a very good basis for my lifetime carreer, thouroughly enjoyed my 2 years with VR-3, and the many flights to several world locations.

I am a 50-year old Navy veteran, and former Naval Aircrewman and now employed as an airline pilot. However, in 1961 I was a very sick toddler and I was MEDEVAC'd to Travis AFB and ultimately Philadelphia Naval Hospital aboard a Navy Connie. To those men and women in the crew(s) that jhad a hand in saving my life. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Regards,

Scott Fitzpatrick
