After completing CH-46 qualification and participation in a three-month cruise aboard the USS Guadalcanal to learn the finer points of carrier and amphibious operations, Mr. Smith was assigned in November of 1969 to fly with HMM-161 in the Republic of Vietnam. During his service there, he was shot down twice and crashed once due to a control system failure, miraculously walking away from all three incidents without injury. Mr. Smith left the Marines as a Captain in 1975, and trained to be a computer applications software engineer, an occupation in which he is still employed.

Williams, Douglas ’65, Navy Reserve
During the summer of 1966, while working as a Systems Engineer for Long Island Lighting Company in Hicksville, NY, Doug enlisted in the U.S. Navy Flight Program and reported for training in Pensacola, FL in February 1967. Upon completion of Aviation Officer Candidate School in April 1967, he was commissioned an Ensign in the USNR.
In December of 1967, Doug graduated from flight training and received his Wings of Gold after which he began Fleet Replacement Training at Naval Air Station (NAS) Oceana, Virginia Beach, VA for duty involving flying the A-6 Intruder, a carrier-based, all-weather attack aircraft.
After completion of Replacement Air Group (RAG) training in September 1969, Doug reported to his first fleet squadron, Attack Squadron 75, as part of Carrier Air Wing Three (CVW-3) aboard the USS Saratoga (CVA-60).
After a two-year tour of duty in the fleet, Doug received orders back to the A-6 Replacement Training Squadron, VA-42 at NAS Oceana to become an instructor. Two and a half years later, he was rotated back to the fleet and was assigned to Attack Squadron 176, in Air Wing Six (CVW-6) aboard the USS Franklin D. Roosevelt (CVA-42).
In the fall of 1975, Doug received orders to shore duty again and was assigned as Assistant Maintenance Officer of Medium Attack Wing One at Naval Air Station, Oceana. During this period of “builddown” after the Viet Nam War, he decided by the spring of 1977, to leave active duty and seek a new civilian career. To preserve his investment in an eleven year Navy career, he transfered to the Naval Air Reserve as a selected reservist and continued flying in the EA-6A with Electronic Warfare Squadron (VAQ) 209.
After four more years of flying and being promoted to the rank of Commander, Doug’s flying days were over. In 1983, he received orders to the staff of Commander, U.S. Naval Forces Atlantic (COMNAVAIRLANT) in Norfolk, Virginia, where he performed in various billets until being promoted to the rank of Captain in 1989.
Doug’s last reserve duty assignment was at Naval Air Reserve Norfolk where he performed inspections and leadership training of Naval Air Reserve units in the Norfolk area and at the Naval Reserve Air Station, Atlanta, GA. Doug’s Naval career ended in September 1994, when he retired after 27 years of service to the United States of America; an experience for which he feels both privileged and proud.
