Third Class Petty Officer Kenny Lynch

Petty Officer 2nd Class Stephen W. Strickland (AO2)

"I served aboard the USS Forrestal from March of 1986 to July of 1989 when I transferred to NAS Cecil Field Det Astor (Pine Castle). I started out as an Airman Apprentice, assigned to G-2/ weps/ Bomb Assembly. I rose to Third class there, and then transferred up to G-1/weps Flight Deck Ordnance, where I made Second Class. I made two cruises and several Work up's. I was on board with Captain Pieno, Who sailed the MIGHTY FID up the Mississippi River for Mardi Gras In 1987, imagine 2500 sailors making that port of call! I miss the old girl, and think of her often.
I especially Think of one outstanding Airman Who I made 3rd class Posthumously, Kenneth Lynch, You couldn't ask for a more 4.0 sailor.
God Rest His Soul".

Kenny and Steve were friends of mine in the Navy. Kenny gave his life for the USA. I will never forget him.
