CVA-43 Coral Sea 85-86 Line of Death

OK I didn't get many takers from my Oriskany post so I will try something else. I would like to hear from anyone who made the 85-86 cruise when we crossed Quaddafi's Line of Death into the Gulf of Sidra many times. Remember blasting through the Straits of Messina about as fast a Coral Maru could muster but the old girl held her own and I was proud of the those guys down in the engine rooms for holding her together. I was with VFA-132 at the time.
The America CVA-66 was with us also.
Bill

USS DeWert, 11 miles off the coast up close and personnel with Soviet made Nanuchka Patrol boats and subs. Watched the planes fly over our heads (on radar.)
