If this works, this is me with the F-14A Tomcat that bears my name. Photo was taken around 1200 on Sat. 31 OCT 92. VF-302 "Fighting Stallions", NAS Miramar, San Diego, California.

Another taken in Aug. 92 onboard the USS Nimitz (CVN-68) during my very brief stay aboard for a two week Carrier Qualification.

This was taken at NAS Miramar in late 1992 or early 1993. In this photo I am directing a launch for a live ordnance shoot. As a footnote, I recall seeing some of the Phoenix Missles being dated circa 1973...some of the ordnance fired was almost as old as I was (I was 21 or 22 at the time)...LOL.

That would be really cool, WR.  Everyone should feel free to post photos of their military service.  I know I would love to see them.

Wally World will scan prints & make a digital file & prints for you. You can then upload the digital files, or use a hosting service to link them to the site.
You can also sentd the prints to the lab to be scanned there, but I prefer to kep any irreplacable originals close to home if you get my drift.
 
(I work for the lab this is done by)
 
Decent prices for the work IMHO.

he!!o TomCatPC.
I noticed in your post you say your pic was taken around late 92.  Interesting.
We may know each other.  I was in VF-31 from 91-92 when we got the F-14D's while transitioning
from the Forrestal
