Mishaps  VP-31 Mishap - May 26th, 1972
I was stationed at NAS Moffett Field, California and an A/C member of VP-31 at the time of the mishap (SEE: VP-31 - In Memorial for lost friends May 26, 1972). However, I don't ever recall the plane being over water when enroute back to NAS Moffett Field, California. Last I knew, it was inbound via Salinas, CA to NAS Moffett Field, California. I wonder if the surrounding hills where ever searched? From what I remember, all search areas were over and on the ocean?

Memorial  MILLER, Harold "Dixie"
My father, Harold "Dixie" Miller, passed away in 1974. Dad served with (I believe) VPB-201 as a pilot, underwent secret training at NAS Banana River, Florida in 1942 and deployed to NAF Port Lyautey, Morocco. I would love to hear from anyone who served with him. Shortly after Daddy died in 1974, a squadron member gave my mother a copy of a novel based on the squdron's war experience written by said squadron member. The book disappeared before I could read it and I don't remember the title. Daddy returned from Africa early due to medical reasons. I believe he was the gunnery officer, and was a 1939 graduate of Annapolis. I would love to hear from anyone who knew Daddy, and would like to learn the name and author of the novel inspired by the squadron's experience. Any stories would be greatly appreciated. Mcgruder Tuttle and Brick Blackburn are two names who I am aware of that he served with in the squadron.

Shipmate  KARKHECK, AT3 Herb
I served with FASRON-107 (01/1959-01/1960). I served mostly in the AT shop, and often ran the test equipment "cage". My good friend, John Krieger, AT3 (1959), married the German Nurse he dated in Rekjavik, and unfortunately, both have passed away. (My German Nurse sent me a "dear John" after I was transferred to VP-5 in NAS Jacksonville, Florida). I would love to make contact my old buddy, Al Augiliera. I think he was from Brooklyn. He was in FASRON-107 at the same time. In fact he saved my life from a big Norwegian (I think), who was going to kill me on Christmas Day, 1959, because of my German background. Alcohol was a contributor to the event. Wishing the best to all my felllow Bropther and Sister Navy Vets.
