During the Vietnam War Jacksonville was a beehive of military activity. I lived near 4 Navy facilities. Mayport, Mainside, Cecil Field, and White House. Of the four facilities my home was located between the last three facilities. The activitu cocnsisted of the follow item: Aircraft Carriers and their escorts were moving in and out of the Mayport Carrier basin. P-3 Orion's were flying training and real missions 24/7 out of NAS Mainside. At White House F-4's, A-6's, and A-7's were executing "Touch and Go's" 24/7. During those years White House recorded more landing's and take offs than and other airport In the world. It was a rare day in my neighborhood when you could look up into the sky and not see or hear a plane or a chopper.
