In 1976, a boy with history walked up the gangplank of the USS America as an ordinary airman. Three years later, he was cat-shot off the boat for the last time as “Cap’n Drift.” Rebel, MIL-SPEC toker and airplane catcher extraordinaire, Cap’n Drift departed with a new chapter written into his history, but he left more than he took.
A Little Sex, A Lot of Dope and an Aircraft Carrier is the first deck-edge perspective of a Kitty Hawk-class supercarrier in the navy that was: grease-stained, rolled in Turkish papers and screaming on afterburner. This is not an authorized history. Fact-checkers have been silenced by any means necessary. Cap’n Drift is not really an officer.
But this story is as real as it gets.
