Memorial Picture "...JANEZIC, VICTOR, F...I am Victor F. Janezic's older brother. Vic ("Janno") is deceased. He died of a brain tumor in 1984 which I attribute to his exposure to the emissions from the transmitting attennas aboard the PB4Y1 and later from the traffic radar unit mounted on the left side of his patrol car. He was a police officer in Euclid, Ohio (suburb of Cleveland) for 27 years. I remember the mishap (ditching) off the coast of MCAS/NAS Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii on April 4, l945. I was assigned to CINCPAC/CINCPOA staff at Pearl Harbor at the time and I was able to see Vic a day, or so, later and I brought him some of my dungarees and white uniforms because he had lost everything when the plane went down. He and I wore the same size at the time. His daughter Carol Janezic lives in Kaneohe, HI at the present time and works for the Defense Investigative Agency. The next time VPB-123 has a Reunion I would like to be notified. I retired from the Navy in 1970 as LCDR and I live in the Washington, DC area (Prince William County, VA)...LCDR Louis A.

I had been discharged only about a month and was returning from an interview at Georgetown U. on the Penn. RR. A man got on at Phil. and sat next to me. As he opened his newspaper I noted a story headlined " Phil. sailor killed in aircrash." It was the story of HA-7 and I believe the sailor was a young AL on the crew. I also believe that VP-24's Personnel Officer, a really good guy, was PPC on 7. I think I remember Bahto, since I was also from NJ. I like your site and found it thru USNA Class of 64 Homepage.

JARRETT, AXCS Chris Retired bigredwing@hotmail.com "...I started my career in SH-3D Helo's back in 1969 at NAS Quonset Point, Rhode Island and did three years with the squadron on the USS Intrepid. Then I finally got smart and as an AX2 moved up to P-3C's and VP-30 at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland. When the Squadron moved to NAS Jacksonville, Florida I worked the night shift at VP-30 until 1976 when I moved over to VP-45. As a VP-45 Pellican I was "homegrown" into a Flight Tech on Crew 1 and ultimately took over Crew 9 as the tech. My next move was to the ASWOC at NAS Jacksonville, Florida which was and still is a component of CPW-11. There I made AXC and ran the ASWOC Maintenance shop. With that experience I transfered overseas to ASWOC NAF Lajes, Azores, Portugal and had probably the best tour of my career. In 1986 I went to the Senior Enlisted Academy as an AXCS and my final duty station was at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland / St. Inigoes Maryland with SPAWAR supporting the TSC and MOCC programs. In 1989 I retired and I'm still at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland supporting SPAWAR and am employed by Eagan McAllister Associates. I look forward to hearing from any of my old Shipmates..."

JAY, Charles cronista@hotmail.com "...I was an AT2 on RB2 and RB6 in VP-42 during 1957 until the end of 1959. Wore my fingers down tuning those ART-13's. Ninety pounds of radio that, on a good day with the trailing wire all the way out might put out 50 Watts! (One had to remember to wind that thing in, before landing... those 6 pounds of lead on the end could do some damage, and I don't know if I should repeat here some of the stories I've heard). Deployed to NS Sangley Point, Philippines. (I think the CO was CDR Tolleson, not sure). Went to A & B schools in NAS Memphis, Tennessee, then assigned to NAS Kodiak, Alaska, finally to NAS North Island, San Diego, California where I stayed in VP-42 until discharged early in 1960. Went back to school, then to work for NASA. Now semi-retired in Phoenix. Would like to hear from people who were in the squadron at the same time I was. In NAS Kodiak, Alaska I flew Radio Operator on R5D's and UF's. Freight and SAR. There was a P2V ("two turnin' and two burnin'") Squadron there at the time, but I couldn't transfer into it. One ship from that squadron got shot down by the Russians in the mid '50s over the Bering Sea (well, they "said" that's where they were). NAS Kodiak, Alaska and all of the Territory of Alaska was a personal hell for me. Throw in NAS Adak, Alaska, Kiska, Shemya, Cold Bay, Afognak, Sitkinak, and all those god-forsaken rocks. Oh, and don't forget Attu! I have the utmost respect for those who served in those places without the opportunity to fly out like I had.
