I picked up these three ready room coffee mugs on eBay. These belonged to Cdr Guy Cane who was the CAG onboard the USS F D Roosevelt during the 1973 cruise. I thought these were really cool.

 

He retired as a Captain and had an interesting career. US Naval Academy 1954. Vietnam Aviator with one MIG kill while flying the F-8 Crusader with VF-53 off the USS Bon Homme Richard in 1968. Later he was the Skipper with VF-41 flying the F-4 Phantom. He had 212 combat missions and over 1000 carrier landings. He was also a Navy test pilot. The cups are from 1973 when he was CAG-9 commander.

Cool Mugs. Good job keeping them together!

 

Thanks for the comment. I would love to get the cups from the entire Carrier Air Group. The complete set is probably lost to time.

 

Have you gotten any nice buckles lately?

Here are two pics of the CAG. The bottom picture is the CAG manning up a F-8.

Cool mugs. I wonder how many gallons of coffee went through them. I pick up stuff like that when I find it cheep at a thrift store.

Chris... now all you need is a ready room chair :)

You are right Linda! I need another chair, only have one now. Wish I hadn't sold the other one at Roberts auction a few years back. ?
