USS CABOT (CVL-28) 1954 FILM "WEEKEND WARRIOR"




DVD Content
This DVD contains the original Navy produced 16mm film titled "Weekend Warrior", filmed in 1954.
The last half of the film is dedicated to a deployment aboard the USS Cabot, which is very cool as film from the Cabot does not exactly grow on trees.
Great flight operations and other views of the ship.
The first half of the film is dedicated to explaining the importance of NAVAIR Reserves to the fleet. Starts out with a sailor at home doing family chores, then to the NAS St Louis.
This is just a great period film that was made mostly, I suspect, to be a recruitment tool for the NAVAIR Reserves, and it does a good job. But the real value of this gem is the footage from the Cabot.
Over 16 minutes running time

  • Produced by GRS Videos (TM). GRS Videos is dedicated to the preservation of Naval Aviation film footage. This passion began when the son of a recently deceased Korean War veteran told me how he had thrown away all of those "old 8mm films of planes flying off of a ship". Yes, I cried. Our heritage MUST be preserved. As a veteran of Naval Aviation, I have a strong interest in ensuring that our stories are not forgotten. If you have footage (16mm, 8mm, VHS, Super 8, Beta, or Digital) contact me at PLAT_Collector@verizon.net. I will also gladly trade any footage I have for new footage (any format). So, if I have Naval Aviation footage you want, and you have something I do not have, contact me and I am confident we can work something out. I am always looking for new PLAT mishaps and home movies/video of carrier operations and life on carriers. All proceeds go into obtaining and preserving more Naval Aviation footage. Gary R. Schreffler served on USS Midway (with HS-12) from 1984-1991.
