Your Gulf War Unit: VS-24 onboard the USS Theodore Roosevelt
I was deployed with AirAntiSubRon24 (VS-24) on board the USS Theodore Roosevelt (CVN71).
We flew S-3B Vikings and had four confirmed kills. They included the first ever dropping of ordinance in war for the Viking community. We were deployed to the Eastern Med and then moved to the Persian Gulf just prior to the air campaign start and remained in the area for the Provide Comfort efforts.
We did not have any aircraft lost during our time there and this is remarkable since the Viking at that time carried no defensive capability. We served in the Gulf just to the East of the USS Missouri (BB64)
