Memorial Picture "...PELLETIER, Normand Roger...I wanted to let you know that my father PO1 AAM1/C Normand Roger Pelletier passed away this Tuesday, June 8, 1999 of cardiac arrest at his home in Wilmington, NC. He has contributed to your pages many facts concerning the crash of my uncles plane near Iceland during WW2. My father spent much of his early years of service with VP-56, VP-212, VP-201 and patrol bombing squadron VPB-21, and VPB-2. He was very fond of your website and took me to it many times late at night when I would visit with him at his home. My thanks to you for your website as it is a memorial to all who have served in the VPNAVY. My thanks to the Navy and Marine color guard who were also supplied for his beautiful funeral. If you have any additional stories about my father and uncle, Lionel Pelletier, please pass them on. We are composing a scrapbook of facts and stories for both of these gentlemen. Please feel free to write me an email...Roger Lionel Pelletierpelle11@ibm.net..." [12JUN99]

WILSON, AOM Harold E. "Buddy" c/o his son Keith E. Wilson Shipmate Pix kewilson@cyberzone.net "...My father was AOM Harold E. "Buddy" Wilson who served from October 1942 through 1945. He was in VP-213 from 10/1/43 to 2/26/44 and in Rescue Squadron 1 (VH-1) from 5/9/44 through 4/3/45 among other assignments. I have been in contact with Bob Bodge who served with him in Basic, then in Florida. Later he was in VP-202 which was stationed with VP-213. I owe him for pointing me to this site and the Navy Memorial Log. My Dad passed in 1993 but his picture is on the log (the only AOM). Any remembrances of Dad or his squadrons would be great..."
