DOWDY, David C. ddowdy@flash.net "...I served with VP-42 in NAS Whidbey Island, Washington from Fall 68 until it was decomissioned and was trasnferred to NAS Moffett Field, California to VP-40. I was initially an AX but got my AW3 rank serving with Crew 6 as a Julie/ECM operator. I remember a Plane Captain named Pinson who taught me how to properly top off the wing tank of SP2H aircraft. I do have a crew picture from that era and have spoken with another operator named Dennis Likes living in UTAH who served later in the NAVY Reserve as Flight Crew. One of the best friends I had at the time was an individual named Dan Martin who later lived in Florida but he and his wife Jacque seperated and I lost track of him some years back. I served in VP-40 at NAS Moffett Field, California until July 1971, graduated with a BBA from Southern Methodist University in 1975 and have worked primarily in sales of High Tech Lan/WAN PC communications type equipment. I would be interested in hearing from anyone around that timeframe and am in the market for a Flight Jacket. A VP-42 patch would be outstanding..." [09FEB2000]

DOYLE, AO3 Larry (LR) ldoylesr@lycos.com Shipmate Pix Circa 1968 "...A/C Crew 8 and Crew 5 ordnance 1966 to 1968, NAS Whidbey Island, Washington, NAF Cam Ranh Bay, Vietnam, Tan Son Nuht A.B., Viet., NS Sangley Point, Philippines, NAS Iwakuni, Japan, flew OP. Market Time and also Pueblo incident missions, while attached to VP-2. Any old crew out there and other VP-2ers?...I was with VP-2 from October 1965 to October 1968 as an AO3(AC) flying first in Crew 5 (LCDR Lockhart) and spending over a year with Crew 8 (B/U #135553 or as we called her, triple nickle 3, LCDR Briggs). I did two tours in Vietnam and was with Crew 8 on the night that the 3 Chicom trawlers were sunk. Our crew was in that fire fight that saw the trawler blow up before sinking. Our crew was also sent to NAS Iwakuni, Japan in 1968 to fly patrols on the Pueblo (we carried more ord than we did in Vietnam). I belong to the VP-2 organization and have attended Reunion in San Jose & Whidbey Is. If your a VP-2 vet, please join and come out, it's a lot of fun. If you have the Military channel in your area, I was recently interviewed for their new series and was used on a recently shown segment. Unfortunately, where I live we do not have that channel but they did send me a copy of the 3 interviews that they were going to include. There is a lot more I could add to this but I just wanted to share some of my past history. I flew with Chester Coons in Crew 5 and was in the ordance shop with Mike Roberts, we lost both Shipmates when they went to VO-67. I had the honor of copying their names off the Wall in Washington. I still remember them and will never forget them. To follow Comrades! Best of luck to all, hope to hear from fellow Shipmates in the future. If you would need anything information or other items, I have quite an extensive scrap book, slides & pix's and can recall most of my days in the fleet..."
