A Letter from Mike Perkins, One or our readers,

Cat shots were loud and so were the recoveries. When the arresting cable was played out, it sounded like a thousand wildcats screaming in  your ear at the same time. I slept in forward berthing under the bow cats. After awhile I could sleep through anything, even flight ops. I  had an upper rack and that simple foam mattress was better than any  posturepedic. I had also purchased a small black and white TV which I  installed in my rack locker. I got some coax from one of the ships 0009199ALT="USS Forestal Aircraft Carrier model kit Photo" HSPACE=10 VSPACE=10 BORDER=2 height=133 width=300 align=RIGHT>company guys and over a period of days, usually during the night hours when no one was around, I used a splitter and tied into the ships cable system then ran approximately a hundred feet of the stuff, hiding it above ducting, inside cable and wire bundles, etc to the back of my  rack. I was able to watch all of the ships programming, flight ops and  what have you from the comfort of my rack.
