Default JF Kennedy 1980's

Hi All,
I was wondering if any of you might have/know how to get a copy or actual tour of duty book for the JFK (CVN 67) when he did his Mediterrain tour in the early 80's? My dad was a lifer (joined in '66 and retired in '88). I was hoping to get a picture/copy of him in his uniform. Can you help?

Respectfully,

Respectfully,
JFK was an oil burner not a nuke (CV-67, no 'N'). I would look on military.com, as they have reunion and unit pages there, might be able to find one of his old shipmates.

Have you tried looking on Ebay for what is known as a Cruise book from that era? I wish i had a cruise book from my first ship to let my kids see how much I have changed over the past 19 years. Retirement right around the corner, and then I have to find a "real" job. LOL! Machinist Mate 1st Class.
