Another USS DWIGHT DAVID EISENHOWER (CVN-69)

V-2 DIVISION - THE GREEN SHIRT 'GRIM REAPERS' OF THE CATAPULTS - 6" Ace Novelty, Tokyo

The crewmen in Air Department’s V2 Division are tasked with a responsibility to safely launch and recover aircraft on the flight deck. Although they are well known as the quintessential green shirts, few understand the grease and the glory of their unique job.

Although many departments, divisions and squadrons don green jerseys, V2 division is one of the largest on the ship, with more than 200 people from three different ratings: Aviation Boatswain’s Mates (Equipment) (ABEs), Interior Communications Electricians (ICs) and Electrician’s Mates (EMs). ABEs make up about 85 percent of V2. ICs and EMs make up the other 15 percent.

USS EISENHOWER CVN-69 SSES NAVSECGRUDIV 1980 CRUISE

I was on Nimitz for our 1980 Indian Ocean deployment. Eisenhower was our relief, we had been at sea over 100 days without a port call. (144 days by the time we reach port in Norfolk VA) When Eisenhower came alongside for the change of command we had a big banner hanging off the island that said "We like Ike!)

I know you had requested for posts on patches with tags but I'm just excited to share a jacket I just picked up with this Gonzo Guzzler patch! Ace Novelty patches are great!
