O'DAIRE, AOC Alfred W. Sr. Retired c/o Son Alfred W. O'Daire, Jr., SSgt, USMC alfred_odaire@chs.net "...My Father, AOC Alfred W. O'Daire, Sr., served with VP-933 in the 1960's. I remember him going off to Cuba. I also remember watching him come in on his Neptune when we came to the base to pick him up. He is very proud of his time in the Neptunes, probably more than anything else he did in his 27 years in the Navy. I look for anything I can find in reference to his beloved Neptunes for him. He has a beautiful 72nd scale model I made him of LT-7, and I'm working on a scratch 48th scale for him now. The old Chief is still healthy and 84 and would love to hear from former Shipmates..."

ODOM, Mike mikeodom23@aol.com "...Attended AZ "A" School, VP-48 at NAS Moffett Field, California. I distinctly remember the bus dropping me off on the 101 Freeway at the Biker Bar just outside the gate - it was lingerie night. We deployed to NAS Cubi Point, Philippines and NAS Adak, Alaska. Left in 1989 for duty as a Recruit Company Commander at RTC San Diego. Also served on USS Abraham Lincoln (AIMD), Blue Angels Maintenance Team, VFA-27 MMCO aboard USS Kitty Hawk, and finally the Detachment OIC for CVW-5. Selected for Chief while with the Blues and later commissioned an LDO. I owe my Navy success to my roots in VP-48, particularly from the leadership of LT Tom Doughty, ENS Cliff Collins, CMDCM Leo Padilla and AVCM Jim Collins. Reconnected with Maureen Fitzgerald during my CPO Initiation at NAS Pensacola, Florida and she went on to do great things, retiring as a Master Chief. My wife and I landed in Austin, Texas where there is always a cold beer for anyone passing through. I would enjoy hearing from former Shipmates..." [15DEC2010]
