At the age of 34 Ken accepted his commission as an Ensign and became the oldest flight student to attend Naval Flight Officer training. Ken began a distinguished flying career as the Navigator/Tactical Coordinator assigned to VP-44 stationed at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland flying P-3 Orion ASW aircraft with deployments to NAS Argentia, Newfoundland, Canada and the NAF Lajes, Azores, Portugal. After fulfilling his flight commitments, Ken transferred to Naval Aviation Schools Command as a navigation/sea survival instructor and ended his 30 year career assigned to TRARON TEN (VT-10) NAS Pensacola, Florida - See more at: http://www.legacy.com/obituaries/pensacolanewsjournal/obituary.aspx?pid=162255538#sthash.ZFdP0LNI.dpuf.

Mishaps  VP-50 Mishap - March 21st, 1991
I was a Junior Officer, an ENS, stationed aboard USS Florida (SSBN 728). This was my very first patrol. We were tasked, prior to our alert orders, to provide "black cat" services for an exercise off the coast of California. An Orion had us dead-to-rights, which was almost unheard of. Can't provide any more detail than that. At about 0230 in the morning, we received FLASH traffic that the exercise was cancelled, and that all units were to proceed best course, best speed to the crash location. Well, it happened that, since we were already in the sights of a P-3, we were there. I was the Junior Officer of the Deck. We came to persiscope depth, but with only four feet of exposure above the surface, and in stormy conditions at that, we couldn't see anything. In a few hours, we received new tasking, which was basically to continue on with our original OPORD. We were stunned. I don't think anyone knew, really, what to make of it. Personally, I didn't know what to make of it until I met two former officers of VP-50 at a Navy Birthday Ball in Albuquerque, NM in Oct 2000. And that's about all I can say, really. The whole event still grieves me.

My father just passed away at 95 years old. Dad attended the US Naval Academy and received his pilot training at NAS Pensacola, Florida. Dad served with VP-HL-2 and flew the PB4Y-2 and PBY in the South Pacific during World War II. I am wearing a belt buckle that he wore in 1946 in a picture while standing next to his bomber on NAS Kwajalein, Marshall Islands. The buckle reads "Philippines VP-HL-2 1946 W.F. Moynihan." My Dad was a wonderful man who loved his country, the US Navy, both the sea and air. And he loved my mother and us children in a sacrificial way that I have seen in very few.

Notice  Looking for the CPW-5 ball cap that was worn by folks in the ASWOC during the 1980s. Had mine since then, but left it in a C-130H2 on a spacea flight from Yakota AB, Japan to Kadena AB, Okinawa two weeks ago. Unfortunately that flight went on to Thailand! It is very important to me. Any one out there that could help me? Retired from NAS Brunswick, Maine in 1989 after 23 years in WV-2 "Willy Victors', P2Vs and P-3. I volunteer each June down at the Mid-Atlantic Air Museum in Reading, PA, giving tours through their P2V-7S BUNO: 145915. I have 'her' in my log book for four VP-92 flights!

Shipmate  KELLOGG, ATS2 Harold
I served with VR-8 (06/1959-10/1961) at NAS Moffett Field, California (crewman aboard the C121-G Super Connie), VP-48 NAS North Island, San Diego, California and VP-47 at NAS North Island, San Diego, California (crewman aboard the P5M). After serving in the Navy I relocated back to the SF Bay area and worked for several aerospace companies. On that day, April 12, 1973, (SEE: In Memorial for (VP-47) lost friends April 12, 1973) I was working at ZETA Labs in Mountain View, about a mile from the approach end of the NAS Moffett Field, California runways. I felt the building shake and then a rumble. I ran outside and saw the black smoke just behind some houses. I ran down the Bay Shore Frontage Road to the Sunnyvale Golf Course and to the burning aircraft. At first I could not understand what the situation was, the smoke was so thick that I could not see the P-3-V under the Convair 990. I saw some golfers trying to break in the cockpit windows of the 990 but the glass was too thick. Their clubs just bounced off the glass. I could see the pilots hanging from their seat belts but they were not moving. The golfers and I were very upset that they could not break in. I did not have anything that I could use for a club so I looked around but the heat was getting very bad. The firemen then arrived and took over and cut into the aircraft with a saw. As I walked back to work - to the Frontage Road - I saw some golfers playing tho as if nothing had happened! What die hards. Nobody has mentioned it but I think that the NAS Moffett Field crash crew drove their trucks right through the boundary fences of NAS Moffett Field - across both north and south bound lanes of US 101 and the median barrier between them and through all the fences to get to the crash site. They weren't fooling around! I remember that the local hospital had been prepared for receiving many crash victims but only one was brought in to the ER room! I returned to the crash site about two weeks later, the golf course had been restored so that I could not tell what had happened a few days earlier. God bless all of the crewman that were killed and the lone survivor of that tragedy. It will be 44 years since this has happened but I can recall it as if it had happened yesterday. This is a solemn reminder that even in peace time, Freedom is not Free!

Notice  I served with VP-9 (1969) at NAF Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam - ADJ Operations Jet Mechanic. Looking for Shipmates that spent time at NAF Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam as part of the squadron deployment to NS Sangley Point, Philippines (01APR1969-30SEP1969). Specifically anyone that has filed Agent Orange Compensation and successfully provided documentation of their presence on the ground. The squadron records do not support the temporary duty detachments that were deployed to support the aircrews. VA puts the burden of proof on the veteran.
