My crew was one of the very lucky few to make it home on time. On Qwagilan Island We found a cracked exhaust stack on a 15 hour check and thought we were stuck but another crew flew in and had an engine change. They were gracious enough to give us their Exhaust stack and thats why we made it home on time. Our pilot was LTjg Lawless.

A follow on tour back to VP-92 from 82-87. Moved from there to VP-68 from 87-91. Didn't have enough so went back "home" to VP-92 from 91-96 when I finally retired to a great job as an Aviation Safety Inspector with the FAA in Boston. As I look back did it all from pumping a grease gun on the flight line, to Maintenance Chief, all while in a flying billet. Logged almost 9000 flight hours as a P-3 FE and am proud of it. In my later years as the MMCPO I was extremely proud of the maintenance folks that gave the extra effort to get the aircraft "up". The best part was when I preflighted then flew the aircraft on a PMCF. Usually never having a gripe to write up when we were done. The VP-Navy was my Navy and am proud to have been a part of it.

CAIN, AK3 Walter M. walter_cain@yahoo.com "...Straight out of boot camp in NAS North Island, San Diego, California I was sent to VT-29 and was attached there from Dec 1967 until Dec 1969. I worked for ADR Robert D. Huggett and my Division Chief was Wade Lovern. I worked in the Tool Room until Chief Lovern made me Night Check Supervisor. I thought it was great that my Chief thought enough of me to handling the Supply Department. Chief Lovern and I got transfered the same month to the USS America where I worked on the flight deck on Cat 1 until I made AK3. I was transfered to supply to work with him again where he made me Night Check supervisor again. I ordered all the aviation supplies for all the squadrons and made a world cruise that took us to the Vietnam. I became a Shellback on that cruise and since we crossed the International Date Line on Thanksgiving Day we celebrated it twice. We stopped once to go swimming out in the middle of the Pacific and I drove off of the elevator. It didn't seem very high until I was in the air on my way down. What a dive. Spent lots of pesos in "PO Town", Shillings in Sidney, more peosos in Rio and a lot of Hong Kong Dollars. It was a great cruise. I had everyone in my division thinking that I was smuggling a girl back to the USA from Sidney. I did spend a few days with a girl name Janet Smedes who wanted to be a stowaway which several buddies knew about but I never told them she wasn't on the ship. Every night I would take a tray out of the mess decks as if I was going to feed her and then disappear for several hours. I had everyone guessing and really believing that she was on the ship. While at VT-29 the duty section had the job of scrubbing down the flight line. We would have about 15 guys with scrub brushes pushing around a 55 gallons drum ofr MEK and then wash it down with a fire hose. I came up with an idea of nailing the scrub brush heads to a wooden pallet with the MEK on the pallet and then pull it with one of the tractors that we used to moved the planes around. That reduced the work down to just 2 guys. My chief thought that was a great idea and apparently someone else did also because when I was stationed in NAS Oceana with VF-74 they used the same idea there but instead of a wooden pallet they used a medal one and put a sprayer on the MEK drum. I bet someone took my idea and made a fortune off of it..." [28NOV2009]

I was Crew Electrician in Crew 8 and remember many exciting flights when Rocky Bamford was our PPC. I was in VP-40 from 1966-1968. This was a very short tour as it was the final year of sea duty. They wouldn't let me extend for the third year at NAS Cubi Point, Philippines. I was a First Class and worked in the AE shop. In 1968 I transferred to NAS Moffett Field, California for a tour with NAMTRADET. Buck Williams was our CO. I taught P-3B electric power systems to pilots and FEs. I taught a couple of other systems but that was a long time ago and I have forgotten their designations. I made AEC during this tour. After NAMTRADET I transferred to VP-46 where I was shop chief in the Electric Shop, AME Shop and Operations and finally I was the Drug/Alcohol Education contact. I made five (5) deployments to NAS Iwakuni, Japan with VP-47 and VP-46, one (1) to NAS Adak, Alaska with VP-46, and one (1) to NS Sangley Point, Philippines with VP-40. I have nothing but good memories from my entire career. After retiring I went to work for Lockheed in Sunnyvale, CA. on the Trident Missile Program. While with Lockheed I lived and worked in Sunnyvale, Washington DC, and Helensburgh, Scotland retiring as a Senior Manager in December 2000. My wife, Beth, and I now live in Oak Harbor, WA. on Whidbey Island. Retirement is great. I was also elected and seated on the Oak Harbor City Council in January 2006 for a four year term. NAS Whidbey Island, Washington is the home of the VP-1, VP-40, VP-46, VP-69, VQ-1 and VQ-2. It is also home-port for 14 VAQ squadrons who fly EA6B Aircraft.

CAMPBELL, AMM1c James M. camp@interpac.net "...I was in headquarters squadron of FAW-2, and was at MCAS/NAS Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii for about all of 1943 except for a deployment in VP-12 for about 6 weeks to NAS Midway Island. I was then transferred in to PATSU 1-11 which was deployed to the Solomon Islands and the island hopping campaign from Guadalcanal to Munda, Ondonga, Green Island to Emereau,Manus and then back to the States in the fall of 1944. I knew Herman Terry in the metal shop as well as "anvilhead," "Duck" Mallard, Marlow and others. I was a part time flight crew member as well, as an instrument mechanic while on the ground duty roster. I had been to gunnery school at Purcell Okla, on the way to Treasure Island Ca. where we boarded LST-448. About half way to Pearl Hardor, the steering linkage motor "burned out" and we had hand-steer to return to San Diego to get a new one. Then on the way to Pearl and more than halfway there, the motor burned out again and we had to steer the LST by hand. We got off the LST in Pearl and went ashore onto Ford Island. There we had two decker iron cots, which the master at arms would come in and beat on the bedstead with a billy club to wake us up in the morning. There at Ford Island, I saw my first and only Admiral all of the time I was in the Navy. I had made AMM1/c while in the islands and was wearing a hash mark when I got back to the NAS Alameda, California where we bought new clothes. As we were on the ferry over to town to buy our clothes "new dress blues" we met our first female sailors. One I was talking to was a ACMM and she had been in the Navy nine months! We had to box up our dress blues and personal gear while at NAS Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii. in 1943. Therein was my clothes as well as a gold high school class ring and wrist watch. None of which were ever seen again. The box never got home.

CARTHEN, AVCM Roy B. Retired roycar@outlook.com "...I entered in February 1941 and served with VP-55, VP-56, VP-74, VP-45, VP-49, VP-84, etc. and retired October 1963. In NAS Keflavik, Iceland in 1941 with the Geo B. Badger for the trip and with VP-55 at that time to December 1941. Came back in l942 with VP-84 in NAS Argentia, Newfoundland, Canada and NAS Keflavik, Iceland. VP-84 was the top submarine sinking squadron in WW2 and I was with Lt Milliard when we got the first submarine. He went on to get a second one and is now deceased. I entered as a RM3 with my first promotion and then they started aviation rates and I became a ARM2 and eventually a chief radio tech and later AVCM as maintenance chief and leading chief in VP-49 in NAS Bermuda. Some of us in VP-84 have met, had one Reunion in Pensacola. While in NAS Keflavik, Iceland, a german submarine was captured, the crew was turned over to a Norwegian group and I believe they were killed. The capture was by a navy plane and assisted by a navy ship with the submarine being brought into Iceland. A book listing all the sub activity by VP-84 has been written and all the sub kills are listed therein. I would like to hear from anyone and especially anyone who remembers the capture of the sub in the fall of l941...The truth is that the sub was captured by the English and brought to the south shore of Iceland where they worked on it. The crew was interred as POW and all but one of these was turned over to Germans at the end of the war. The one man tried to escape and was killed. The story went on to say the name was changed and it became a British submarine, BUT, I had seen the sub and it was brought into fjord near Reyjkavik and apparently this was not a known partof the situation. Also, we found that two US planes were on the scene when it was captured but it was noted that the British were the oneswho captured it... Thanks for such a great job you have done..."

Made two WestPac deployments to NAS Iwakuni, Japan and one to NAS Kodiak, Alaska/ NAS Adak, Alaska. I then served with VAH-123 from April 1962 to April 1964 as a AO1 Weapons Instructor. As a turret-less P2V aircrewman, I fanaticized about the day the Aero 9 bow turret, the Aero 11 tail turret, and 250CE upper deck turrets would again elevate P2 Truculent Turtle to the status of air warrior of the air and sea, a distinction it once held. But, it was not to happen. When the disillusionment set in, I opted to realign my military career in the USAF crewing up as an AC-130 Spectre Gun Ship Gunner. It was during that assignment that the old fighting instincts that were engrained at VP-1/VP-2 roiled emergence within my soul like the Phoenix of lore, and my hair caught afire (not to be confused with the color of my hair I am a natural redhead!). I embraced the NVA and VC with every ounce of courage and every ounce of lead I had at my disposal. Without getting into the details, I was awarded 9, repeat 9, Distinguished Flying Crosses for those glory days. Each and every one of those 9 medals can be traced to my upbringing in the P2V world of NAS Whidbey Island, Washington - love of life, love of country, love of flying, and love of killing the bastards threatening the American way of life.

CASTRO, AOC Albert Retired aacastro@juno.com "...After my initial P-3 training with VP-31 Moffett Field, California, in March of 1971 I started my first VP operational tour as an Aircrew Ordnanceman with VP-4 NAS Barbers Point, Hawaii. I remember Sherald Juneau the Flight Engineer who became like a brother to me. The fellow Ordies Bob McCoy, Andy "Ord" Anderson, Bob McKinney, Vic Teem, Bill Maye, Glen Schleusser, Howell Robins, Charles Roberson, and of course the two brothers Jim and Rob Jenkins. Pilots like Jim Messegee, Skip Dale, and Bill Broadwell, who cared. Never forget the Cocos Island departing flyby. Everything was just Hunky-Dori. The deployments, detachments, and visits to Japan, Taiwan, Diego Garcia, Australia, Guam, Wake, Philippine Islands, Hong Kong, Indonesia, Thailand, and Vietnam are memories burnt into my mind. Never to forget Wichita Det. After five years with the Skinny Dragons I transferred in April of 1976 to shore duty. I had to get back into flight status. So in July of 1978 I transferred into VP-19 Moffett Field, California. I remember the Ordies most of all Randy Corman, Duck Carter, Reno Dickson, Johnny King, Steve Harris, Frank Pesich, and Perry Veto. Drivers like Ray Morris and Don Hefkin both of them pretty boys. I visited a number locations including, Adak, Okinawa, Singapore, Korea, and Iran. Made a number of site revisits, including back to Hawaii for those quarterly torpedo qualifications. Of course we always had to have a full Ordie load team on all those Hawaii flights. After four and a half years with Big Red, and thinking I had enough of West Pac in January of 1983 I transferred to the Naval Air Development Center (NADC), Warminster, Pennsylvania. I remember Bob Flangan, Dale Cain ("Best Man"), and an Ordie named Ron Jerasa. My aircrew shore duty at NADC had me deploying to NAS Argentia, Newfoundland, Canada, NAS Bermuda, and the Virgin Islands. In November of 1985 I reported to Oceanographic Development Squadron Eight (VXN-8) at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland. During my duty with VXN-8 the World Travelers there was Barry (Hank) Evitts, JD Patterson, Tim Mattson, and Bill Lomba, who I remember most as I was stationed with all four in prior commands (repeat offenders). The civilians Jeff Kerling (Admiral Kerlingus), and Pete Kupstas (Stinky Pete) hit the beach with the rest of us. Then there were the Flight Engineers that no one could ever forget Ed Matteson, Greg Valdez, and Jimmy Danials. What a bunch of great guys, and there was many more, I just had to name a few. While assigned to the World Travelers I made detachments to England, Iceland, Greenland, Portugal, Norway, Scotland, and Spain. After 17 years as a Naval Aircrewman, in December 1989, I reported for my final tour in the Navy with the Naval Aviation Maintenance Office at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland. I retired from the United States Navy in April of 1992. Currently I am providing direct staff technical support to the Naval Air Systems Command (NAVAIRSYSCOM) Program Manager for Aviation Training Systems (PMA205), for acquisition and life cycle support of airborne weapons systems. Living in La Plata, Maryland and working in the Patuxent River area, I get to see a few of the old P-3 squadron mates..." [E-Mail Updated 09AUG2005 | 27MAR2001]
