Memorial  Shipmate Pix PAGE, LT Loren Vern
My father, LT Loren Vern Page, was lost in a mishap June 13th, 1961. Dad was flying (Instructor) a Grumman S-2 Tracker lost complete power in one engine and partial power in the other. He died 6 hours later at Iberia Parish Hospital, in New Iberia, Louisiana. Dad intentionally attempted ditching the aircraft in Spanish Lake, near the Naval Auxiliary Air Station New Iberia, after losing power. Students LT(jg) G. Donald L. Miller and a second unnamed student were both hospitalized with treatable injuries. Dad was posthumously promoted to full Lieutenant status by the Secretary of the Navy, John B. Connally, for courage and valor. Dad served with VP-22 (1958-1959) at NAS Kodiak, Alaska. I would love to hear from any of my Dad's former Shipmates.

Shipmate  PARSONS, AMS1(AC) Clayton L.
I was 19 years of age on Dec 2, 1965 and checked into VP-42 on or about 30 Jan 1966. I was an AMS3 straight out of "A" school with NO experience and was assigned to the airframes shop. It had been my burning desire to be on a flight crew since my very early months in the Navy and I had recieved the necessary security clearance and had completed SERE training while in VP-31. And then after completing all the quals to be told that AM's weren't permitted to fly in VP-42 was a disappointment to say the least. But I didn't take no as and answer and kept making unofficial inquiries. Then after about 6 months LCDR Sarkisian, the MO and PPC of crew RB 8 put me on his crew as 2nd mech. I was flipped out. But then in Dec I unexpectedly got orders to a VA squadron in NAS Lemoore, California. I made a Med cruise on the USS Satratoga (CV-60) and spent 2 more years in VXE-6 Operation Deepfreeze, the highlight of my career. I was discharged on 12/20/74.

HistoryI was a frightened sixth grader when I was evacuated with my Mom, 2 brothers and sister from NAS Guantanamo Bay, Cuba during the Cuban missile crisis (October 22nd, 1962). We were shipped to Norfolk on the USS Duxbury Bay. There were other ships as well but I don't remember the names. I think this was the ship's most important mission as the world never came closer to a nuclear weapons exchange. My personal safety not withstanding!!! I eventually enlisted in the Navy and served on the USS Will Rogers (SSBN 659) primarily from 1972-1978. Reactor operator and electronics technician.
