Like most young men in the late 60s / early 70s that pursued a career in Naval Aviation, the compiler of this album was focused primarily on three things: Airplanes, cars & members of the opposite sex.

Mr Adams (?) was a Corvette fan, apparently owning a 1968 big-block. We find images from VT-10, as well as VT-29, in Corpus Cristi TX, places where he was, no doubt, stationed during flight training. We find pictures of Ms Anita Deppe [amongst many, many others], and from a Disneyland souvenir, we surmise she was a girlfriend from this period.

An interesting pictorial record of a young naval avaitor's budding carreer, at the height of the Vietnam war [which, surprisingly enough, gets no mention whatsoever in this young man's album].
