I was in a draft of 600 Airdales, enroute to NAS Agana, Guam during Christmas 1945 when my orders were changed when our ship (USS Long Island CVE-1) docked for supplies at NAS Ford Island, Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. Because of my civilian experience in the Treasury Department at a United States Steel Corporation Division, I was taken from the NAS Agana, Guam contingent (Draft) and assigned to the Flag Office of FAW-14 COMAIRPAC. I was to serve as a Law Department Clerk, until July 1946, when I was mustered out. I will be 91 on September 21, 2017. Life is good. I believe I was on duty in the Flag office when the devastating tidal wave hit the island. I am proud to have served in the US Navy.

Mishaps  VP-9 Mishap - October 26th, 1978
The Readers Digest Story "Ditching, Ditching, Ditching" (SEE: In Memorial for VP-9 lost friends Alfa Foxtrot 586) is really special to me. I sincerely appreciate the Crew member who wrote this. I did personally know Jim Brooner. He was my first husband's best friend in Jim's home town of Creswell, OR. Jim was also engaged for a short to my older sister. I was pregnant with my first child when this devastating event happened. It still brings me to tears thinking of this and Jim Brooner. I also was acquainted with Jim's sister Tanya. I so badly wanted to wake up to find this a BAD Dream. Sadly, life does not work in this manner. Jim Brooner is so sadly missed.

Just wondering if there is anyone remaining who knew him. Two of his buddies that I met were Art Northrup and Carl Hammond. He spoke of patrols on the Soviet border, shadowing the Soviet navy and taking part in the Cuban missile crisis.

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.

From VP-31 I went to a destroyer in NAS Norfolk, Virginia; stayed in the Reserves after leaving active service and retired in 2007 as a Captain. VP-31 was a great start to a wonderful Navy career.

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!
