TYLDESLEY, Linda M tooner@bigplanet.com "...My only squadron assignment was VP-46 from 1986 to 1990, and it was definitely a unique experience. I enjoyed the opportunities we had on deployment to meet new people and see new places. Thanks to the VP site, I was able to get in touch with old friends, as we all went our separate directions. I have some great memories of squadron people from that time, and will always remember them..." [22MAR2000]

TYLER, Francis D. Jr. http://world.std.com/~shermie/vets/vets009.html "...Francis D. Tyler, Jr. PE, PBM, Patrol Bomber Mariner (PBM) US Navy Pilot First, I think I should tell you how I got in the Navy. Some of you also registered for that first draft, back in October of 1940. I have a brother, two years younger; his number was in the first 100, while mine was 8809. He was called up in February of 1941. Then by the time I was classified 1A, I had seen a friend home on leave in a sparkling white uniform with beautiful Gold Wings on his chest. I decided that was the part of the service that I wanted to serve in, so I enlisted. I finally got sworn in, on December 30, 1941, twenty-three days after Pearl Harbor. In March of 1942, I received orders to report to the Naval Air Station at Lake Pontchartrain, north of New Orleans, Louisiana. I had become a Naval Aviation Cadet. In June I was transferred to the NAS Pensacola, Florida. Six months later I was designated an Ensign and Naval Aviator. I was then assigned to the Transitional Training Facility at NAS Banana River, Florida. Here we were introduced to the plane we would fly, the PBM, Patrol Bomber Mariner, as designated by the Navy. The Squadron in which I flew was VPB-209 was commissioned on January 1, 1943 and a full compliment of 15 planes was reached in June of the same year...." [09JUL2003]
