Recommended Posts

I've got both variants of the Camden (AOE-2) coat of arms patch.

I do not profess to be a militaria expert, but I conduct as much research as I am capable of and then write about my findings.

My one and only duty station while in the Navy. Great thread to the much unrecognized support fleet. Thanks, Al.

High Flight

Oh, I have slipped the surly bonds of earth

And danced the skies on laughter-silver wings;

Sunward I've climbed and joined the tumbling mirth

Of sun-split clouds - and done a hundred things

You have not dreamed of - wheeled and soared and swung

High in the sunlit silence. Hovering there

I've chased the shouting wind along and flung

My eager craft through footless halls of air.

Up, up the long delirious, burning blue

I've topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace,

where never lark, or even eagle flew;

and while, with silent, lifting mind I've trod

The high untrespassed sanctity of space,

Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

 

John Gillespie Magee, Jr.

June 9, 1922 – December 11, 1941

Reasonable people adapt themselves to the world.Unreasonable

people attempt to adapt the world to themselves.All progress,

therefore, depends on unreasonable people.

USS Sacramento   AOE - 1

This Sac patch looks like a very early, 1960s variation. Nice!
