FORT, Frank R. email@example.com "...I flew with VPB-119 in PBY2 BUNO: 59677. The squadron was based at nas NS Sangley Point, Philippines. I question the picture about Samar (SEE: VPB-119 Mishap 12 JAN 46). We went there only if a TYPHOON WAS HEADING FOR Manila. We were redesignated as VPHL-9 and we flew our planes to NAS Agana, Guam and turned them over to VPHL-2. The squadron then went back to the States to Miramar, California and we were the first squadron to get P2V2's. I was a crew member in 39326 and the sqyadron was designated VPML-7. After receiving all our aircraft from Lockheed, we relocated to NAS Quonset Point, Rhode Island. It was then redesignated VP-7. SO I HAVE flown with that squadron also with Rocky Rouser from VPB-119, VP-HL-9, VP-ML-7 and VP-7..." [30SEP2006]
