USS Forrestal CV-59 Aviation Ordenance.

Was part of WepDept for the FIDs 16th Mediterranean deployment. The Syria/Israel missile crisis during this time. Wel maintained a high state of readiness for 53 consecutive days at sea.

In a Gulf of Sidra exercise, two Libyan aircraft were shot down after firing upon F-14s from Nimitz over international waters. Forrestal aircraft made more than 60% of all the intercepts of Libyan planes. After departing the Mediterranean we operated above the Arctic Circle as part of NATO Ocean Venture '81.

I deployed for the Forrestal's 17th Mediterranean cruise on 8 June 1982, and operated in the eastern Mediterranean in support of the Lebanon Contingency Force of 800 U.S. Marines in Beirut. On 12 September 1982, after transiting the Suez Canal for the first time in her 28-year history, we entered the Indian Ocean.

Forrestal completed the five and one-half month deployment with a nighttime arrival at Mayport on 16 November and immediately began preparing for the Service Life Extension Program (SLEP).

The ship shifted homeport to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, on 18 January 1983, and embarked on the 28-month, $550 million SLEP, designed to extend the life of U.S. aircraft carriers another 15 to 20 years.
