Memorial Picture "...GORDON, LT(jg) Nathan G...Nathan Green Gordon, a Navy pilot who received the Medal of Honor for rescuing 15 downed airmen under enemy fire in the Pacific during World War II, has died. He was 92. Gordon, who went on to become lieutenant governor of Arkansas, died Monday night at a hospital in Little Rock, Ark., while being treated for pneumonia and other ailments, his nephew Allen Gordon said. Born in 1916 in Morrilton, Ark., Gordon graduated from the University of Arkansas law school in 1939 and began practicing law in his hometown. He learned to fly after enlisting in the Navy in 1941. During the war http://www.intheirwords.org/, Gordon flew a Consolidated PBY Catalina flying boat, a large plane no faster than a high-powered automobile. On Feb. 15, 1944, he received orders to search for downed pilots after a raid on the Japanese position in Kavieng along the Bismarck Sea near Papua New Guinea. Under fire in rough seas, Gordon piloted the unwieldy aircraft to make three landings to pick up nine men. On the way back, he saw a life raft 600 yards from the enemy shoreline. Gordon landed yet again, pulling six more airmen aboard while taking on heavy fire. "His plane was seriously overweight by the time he finished," said Stephan McAteer, executive director of the MacArthur Museum of Arkansas Military History in Little Rock. "He just did not want to leave anyone there because if they had been captured, they would have faced almost certain death." Gordon flew his aircraft to Finschhafen, a port in northern New Guinea. "I hadn't thought about what I was doing," Gordon told the Kansas City Star in 2005. "I did what I had to do. And I was lucky to get out of it." In nominating him for the nation's highest military honor http://www.cmohs.org, his superiors cited Gordon for "exceptional daring, personal valor and incomparable airmanship under most perilous conditions." Gordon also received the Distinguished Flying Cross for his service in the Pacific. Family members said Gordon didn't speak much about his military service. However, until his final days, he would tell anyone who asked about the rescue mission in the Bismarck Sea that brought him national acclaim, his nephew said. "He would always tear up," Allen Gordon said. On his return to Arkansas, friends persuaded him to run for lieutenant governor. The Democrat entered office in 1947 and held the position for 20 years, serving under Gov. Orval Faubus during the 1957 Little Rock Central High School desegregation crisis. "He pretty well kept his head down and didn't take part in it to any great extent," said Roy Reed, a former Arkansas Gazette reporter who covered the crisis and later wrote a book on Faubus. Gordon left office in 1967, the same year as Faubus, and returned to practicing law. He retired in 1992, and three years later his wife of 50 years died. They had no children...Associated Press, From the Associated Press September 10, 2008..." Contributed by BURGESS, Richard R. rburgess@navyleague.org [11SEP2008]

From pictures of B-24's to letters from some of you he had received over the past year or so. He was always eager to tell of the Dunkswell web page, to share his pride and maybe tell someone of the time spent there.

We exchanged our PBY's for PB6Y-1 and formed VPB-107. I reported to NAS Hutchinson, Kansas for Combat Aircrewman School. We formed a crew known as M68. After graduation we were sent to VPB-197 NAAS Camp Kearny, California. We arrived June 1945 to train for VPB-109 on Okinawa, Japan. We deployed July 1945 for VPB-200 at NAS Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii for additional training. I left VPB-200 for VPB-109 August 1945. They were disestablishing VPB-109 and reassigned us to NAS Alameda, California (December 1945). I was then assigned to VPB-197 NAAS Camp Kearny, California. VPB-197 was disestablished April 1946.

GOODMAN, AWCS Edward E. (Ed) Retired Shipmate Pix edinsea@hotmail.com "...Greetings to all the Shipmates I've been privileged to serve with over the years. I'd enjoy hearing from any and all. I joined the Navy in December of 1960. Upon completion of recruit training in San Diego I attended Aviation Electronics "A" school at NATTC NAS Memphis, Tennessee as an ATS, a rating that later combined with others to become AX. While there I was also a member of the "Flying Rifles" Navy drill team. I was then assigned to VP-47 at NAS Whidbey Island, Washington, flying as crew 9's Panel Operator in P5M, later SP5B, aircraft BUNO: 135474. We deployed to NS Sangley Point, Philippines in 1964 and the memories are as fresh today as then. What a wonderful place. My enlistment was up at end of the deployment to NS Sangley Point, Philippines in 1964; I left the service only to rejoin in 1966 and be assigned to VP-22 at NAS Barbers Point, Hawaii, first as a groundpounder then as a member of crew 10. I became a plank owner in the AW rating in 1968 but then transferred to NATTC NAS Memphis, Tennessee once again to attend AVI "B" school, a condition of my reenlistment contract. My next assignment was to ASCAC at NAS Whidbey Island, Washington. The command decommissioned during my tour of duty and I transferred to ASCAC in COMASWGRU-3 aboard USS Hornet then USS Ticonderoga. From February 1974 until November 1977 I was assigned to VP-17 Crew 11 flying P-3's out of NAS Barbers Point, Hawaii. While there I held assignments in QA, as instructor in NATOPS, then as AW division chief. Next I "vanished" into the unknown for awhile (1977 to 1982) while attached to NMPC S/D components. I finished my active duty career in 1985 while assigned to staff of CTF-67, homeported in NAF Naples, Italy. I made many a good friend while working with the VP squadrons who inchopped into the Mediterranean as well as staff from NS Rota, Spain, NAS Sigonella, Sicily and Souda Bay, Crete. I would like very much to hear from anyone who was there. I currently reside in Olympia, WA and work in Seattle, at least until years end when I retire once again..."
