FRANKLIN, AE2 Rod "Meyers" "Quaker" rodfrank2001@yahoo.com Shipmate Pix "...I served in VW-11 from January 1961 until July 1, 1962, came as an AEAN straight out of A School, left as an AE2. I flew the barrier from NAS Argentia, Newfoundland, Canada to NAF Lajes, Azores, Portugal. Remember the "tailess wonders" that they hid out back of Miami Hangar. I later deployed to NAS Keflavik, Iceland in June of 1961. I stayed most of the time in Iceland after that. Anyone remember when Commander Baer took the two Air Force Nurses on the barrier patrol in Keflavik? How about when one of the Air Force's RC-121's taxied up to the hanger and collapsed its landing gear during the Berlin Buildup in 1962? Remember Commander Reddy, Maintenance Officer in VW-1, had an opportunity to assist his brother in Las Vegas when I was a police officer there. My twin brother Dick Franklin was a radio announcer at VOUS in Argentia - he was the one that got to kiss Jayne Mansfiled during Bob Hope's Xmas show in 1961. Went on to service with VP-23 at NAS Brunswick, Maine changed name to birth name of Franklin. After a short stint at VP-30 at NAS Jacksonville, Florida and FAETULANT at NAS Breeze Point. I acquired the nickname "Quaker" since nobody had been around us "Mormons", was in Crew-3 for two months and then Crew-1. In VP-23 deployed to NAS Sigonella, Sicily, NS Roosevelt Roads, PR, searched for the Mayflower II, Operated from NAF Recife, Brazil and NAF Belem, Brazil when they hijacked the Santa Maria cruise liner, again in Paramaribo, Suriname in search of the Venezuelan sulphur tanker, Anzoataquay. Also NAS Guantanamo Bay, Cuba and the gunrunners to Venezuela during the National Elections in 1963. Had some good times in Panama. Anyone remember when our Radioman, the "Bone", Gilbert took out the radio compartment hatch while in flight? Needless to say some day a fisherman will drag it up in a net between Cuba and Haiti. We laid a wreath at the site of the sinking of the attack submarine, USS Thresher on Memorial Day 1963, LJ-1 was the first plane to reach the search area and were so honored to assist with the ceremony performed by the Governor of Maine.

He trained in NAS Pensacola, Florida and used to pilot a P2V-7 (and others in the P2V series (I think). His name was LT William S. Fryer. I have some old movies he shot of his squadron, including films shot during flights. I believe he served with FAW-3. He left five children. My dad loved flying - he used to tell us stories about night flights, 50 ft over the ocean, on sub chasing training missions he used to tell us about all the shooting stars he saw. I would appreciate any info on P2V's as I am trying to collect photographs and information to pass on to his grandchildren. Thanks [01AUG99]
