NOTICE: "...The VP Association, which is an organization of veterans who served with the Naval Air Reserve patrol squadrons based over the years at NAS Squantum, Massachusetts, NAS South Weymouth, Massachusetts, and NAS Brunswick, Maine, have reproduced two rare vintage official U.S. Navy publications associated with the Naval Air Reserve in New England. These are "The Defender's History" and "Squantum Weekend Warriors". These books were originally produced in 1952 and 1996, respectively, just before each base closed. All profits from the sales of both books go to the VP Association's administrative fund. To order copies of these books on-line using your credit card (the only way to buy them at the present time), go to http://www.lulu.com/content/3393595 for the NAS South Weymouth, Massachusetts book and to http://www.lulu.com/content/3392920 for the NAS Squantum, Massachusetts book. Descriptions of the books are provided on the web pages. At only $12 each one is a real bargain..."

NOTICE: "...Disestablishment of Commander Reserve Patrol Wing (SEE: OPNAVNOTE 3111)..." Contributed by Merrill Kruse email@example.com [03FEB2007]
This invitation is extended to ALL personnel active duty, FTS/TAR & SelRes who served in any Reserve VP Squadron (VP-60, VP-62, VP-64, VP-65, VP-66, VP-67, VP-68, VP-69, VP-90, VP-91, VP-92, VP-93, VP-94, VP-MAU, VP-SAU/SRU), any Reserve VP Training Command (RATCEN, RESASWTAC, RESASWTAC East/RESASWTAC West) or any Reserve VP Support Unit (TSC units, MOCC units).
On 23 June 2007, following the Change of Command for Capt. Ken Lewko (VP-92,VP-66, CO RATCEN, Wing CSO, etc.) there will be a "celebration" of sorts, to commemorate Commander Reserve Patrol Wing (formerly COMRESPATWINGLANT & COMRESPATWINGPAC) at its Disestablishment. It is thought that this would be the best "Last Chance" for those that have served in the Reserve Force Maritime Patrol Aviation community across the years to get together one last time and remember the long and proud heritage of which each of us is a part.
Plans are underway, with a major question being "how many will attend?" If you plan on attending please send an email response to:
You should then receive an evite invitation which will provide additional details and costs. You must return the evite with payment in order to ensure access to the event.
Date: 23 June 2007
Place: NAS Willow Grove, Pennsylvania
