Note VP-661 NoticeNote

Note NOTICE: "...I am trying to purchase the following patches: NAS Kingsville, Texas, NAS New Orleans, Louisiana, USS Albemarle (AV-5), VP-661 (1960s era) and VP-883 (1960s era) for my collection of previous duty stations/squadrons...SABOL, David dgstomp@juno.com..." [23NOV2004]

Note NOTICE: "...I received an E-Mail from a former member of VP-661 about 2 weeks ago asking if I had any photos of the squadron during the 1950 - 1952 era. Sad to say his message was lost in its entirety due to a computer "meltdown!" If the gentleman reads this message, please send me another E-Mail as I do have some photos and other squadron contacts he may be interested in. FLY NAVY!...Jack Houchens pinesduo@aol.com..." [13APR2003]

Note NOTICE: "...I would like to track down Ed Newman, formerly AT1 on Crew 6 (PBM), VP-661. Lost track of you since you moved to California from Tenn. Also, for those interested, Revell-Monogram Model Co. is releasing a new model of the PBY-5A sometime in February 2002. They have yet to come up with the P-3, PBM, or P5M. Maybe a boost from the membership would help them rectify this gross mistake. Their internet address is: www.revell-monogram.com. A way to contact them is included in the site text. Happy New Year!..Jack Houchens PC EH12 VP-661 pinesduo@aol.com..." [29DEC2001]

Note NOTICE: "...I have lost contact with Ed Newman, PBM Crew 6, VP-661. Last word from him was his move to California in 2002 from Chatanooga, TN. His server "Bellsouth" had to be changed after he was settled in California. The restoration of the PBM-5A in Arizona is showing great progress! I would like to contact Ed and others for a trip to look it over in 2003...Jack Houchens pinesduo@aol.com..." [15OCT2002]
