I put up a VPNAVYs FORUM! a few years ago. It was well received but the Spammer's were going nuts leaving stuff. Fortunately, Forum Software has improved over the past few years and are able to block Spammer's with better success. So, I brought VPNAVY's Forum back online with new and improved software.

Thanks and Good Hunting!

Shipmate Information Request #26
Memorial
Posted:  February 20th, 2013
Updated:  June 27th, 2013

OK Shipmates, you came through 2 Shipmate Findings25 Shipmate Findings times already!  You provided information for family members about their fathers and husbands that that Official Channels couldn't provide.  Here is number 2 Shipmate Findings26 Shipmate Findings:

My Father, ATN3 Francisco "Frank" VEGA, was lost during the VP-9 Mishap on April 7th, 1965. I was only 9 months old when he died and have always wanted to know about him. I would like to hear from anyone that may have known my Father. Thank you.

Frank Vega, Jr.
frankvega@ymail.com [20FEB2013]

UPDATE "...I recently received this e-mail from Steve "Andy" ANDRUSZKEWICZ sgpa2zfmly@aol.com..." Frank Vega, Jr. frankvega@ymail.com [27JUN2013]

I served with your Dad in VP-9 early 1964 at NAS Moffett Field, California. We had just begun the transition from P2V7's to the P-3 Orion.

Frank was a very enthusiastic, intelligent and most of all likeable and personable guy.

I remember a conversation we had, he was telling me how happy he was to be in a squadron as a crewman and how much fun he was having. It was early in his service but I think he was already considering a full 20 to 30 year career.

I left the squadron in August 1964 for Instructor Duty at NAS Memphis, Tennessee.

When I heard about the crash and the details and how Frank died I cried, he was such a vibrant young man.

There is an online VP-9 Website and Roster maintained by BIGLEY, CDR Tom Retired bigleytl@earthlink.net.

Sorry to say, I don't have any photos, but I'll always have that wonderful smiling face in my minds eye. When ever I see Eric Estrada I always think of your Dad.

Respectfully,
