Former McCain War-Mate Speaks Out (USS Forrestal Fire)

Senator McCain--the name makes me want to upchuck-- left the Forrestal immediately and went to the Oriskany, the very Carrier that was to be our reminder, and was shotdown.

For my work on manning the fire hoses, ridding the aircraft, and ordinance into the sea, I got to wear any type of menthol I could find under my nose, on the long, almost-40 day trek back, after fighting the fire--to try to knock down the stench of burning bodies of my friends. It was far more gruesome than one can imagine.
