Send A Vet To His 50 Year Reunion

July 29th 1967 I was serving aboard USS Forrestal, CVA 59. We suffered a terrible fire in the Gulf of Tonkin. My ship lost 134 of my shipmates that Saturday. It was during the Summer of Love. I didnt feel much love but I did bond with my shipmates, forever.  Now is my chance to reunite. But I cant attend. I have PTSD from being on the flight deck and watching my shipmates be killed. We are all near 70 now and this might be our last chance. I will get my son to drive me but I will need  food and lodging for 7 days. Registration and any field trips I could afford. I am 70% disabled but young at heart.
