GULLIVER, Victor S. c/o his daughter Anne Gulliver gulliver@wwa.com "...Joined VP-2 in September 1959, just weeks before we deployed for the usual six month deployment to NAS Kodiak, Alaska/ NAS Adak, Alaska. The PPC of my first crew was LT George Silberstein, who was given the task of training two PP3P's to be co-pilot: Don Hindorf and Bill Sterton were both Connie pilots who'd transferred to VP-2 on split tour only a few months before I arrived. I was a "PPnoP," with no hope of moving up during the winter deployment because we didn't conduct any training fights in the Alaskan winter. George Silberstein was a great PPC. He shared the seat time equally with all of us, and he trained us to the very best of his ability. The most common complaint among my nugget contemporaries was probably that their PPC's wouldn't give them enough pilot time. They spent way too much time chained to the navigation table. I followed George's lead in training the young pilots under me in the years that followed George's departure. Several years after Bill Sterton left the squadron, he was killed landing a C-2 on an aircraft carrier as a member of the ship's company. In my second six mouth deployment to Alaska, I flew with LCDR Paul Tripp, and LT Dick Seng. On my third deployment to Alaska, I had my own crew and we had LCDR Don Florin, LTJG Dave Bowen, and ENS Jerry Russell, one of the first NFO's in the squadron.. Also on my last crew were AD2 Ric Dombrowski, ADJ3 Floyd Palmer and ATN2 Dick Whipple, all of whom attended the 1996 reunion. I left VP-2 in May 1963, but stayed in the Navy for a thirty year career. I had two tours in VP-49, the last of which was an XO/CO tour from 1972-1974..." [21JUL98]
