Memorial Picture "...HARSCHUTZ, CAPTAIN Edward F...My Dad, CDR Edward F. Harschutz, was CO of FASRON-102 back in the mid to late '50s at NAS Norfolk, Virginia. This fits with my arrival 17DEC52 at Great Lakes Naval Hospital. My family stayed around long enough for my to get some sea legs and then hightailed it to Virginia Beach so my Dad could start his new duties at NAS Norfolk, Virginia. I'd love to speak with anyone who knew or worked with my Dad as he's been gone now since August 1970. I didn't have enough time with him and he certainly would have enjoyed fishing with his grandson, Edward, IV. Thanks for keeping the memories alive. It's been great fun reading all that I can.
