Memorial Picture "...SILLER, Arnold F...I am the daughter of Arnold Francis Siller, Ret. CPO. who served on the USS Albemarle (AV-5) as their meterologist. I've tried to find him listed in the crew book and he wasn't there. I remember celebrating my birthday along with my mother and sister on the USS Albemarle (AV-5) approximately sometime in June, I believe in 1957.

I'm sorry to report that dad died on January 30, 1987 of Lung Cancer. Dad joined the Navy in 1940 at the age of 17 to serve in WWII and retired in 1960. Dad went on to be a meterologist with Federal Government serving at Wallops Island, VA. Then when his duty there ended in 1965, the Government transferred dad to Lexington, KY as a meterologist at Bluegrass Airport until he retired in 1978 and returned to New England, Milton, NH where he was put to rest in Milton Mills Cemetary in 1987..."

In the summer of 1964 we transferred from NAS Jacksonville, Florida to NS Roosevelt Roads, PR. At NS Roosevelt Roads, PR I participated in the Dominican Republic Crisis, one NAS Guantanamo Bay, Cuba Detachment and two Unitas Detachments. In March of 1967 my tour was over and I separated from active duty. I stayed as a drilling reservist at NAS New Orleans, Louisiana from 1967 to 1971. In 1971 I affiliated with VP-94 NAS New Orleans, Louisiana as an In-flight Plane Captain. In 1972 to 1973 we decommissioned the last P2V-7's and commissioned the first P-3A's. With VP-94 I made three NS Rota, Spain deployments and was unfortunate enough to be involved in the last accident on the P2V. I was on the jumpseat during take off on a detachment to NS Rota, Spain when the 2P pulled up the Landing Gear Handle during the takeoff roll. We ended up nose landing on the runway. Fortunately we all walked away unharmed except for a minor arm injury. In July of 1976 I rejoined the Navy as a TAR and eventually retired in the VR Program serving as Flight Engineer, NATOPS Instructor, and Wing Evaluator on the C-118 with VR-52, NAS Glenview, Illinois and CFLSW.

SIMSON, PO3 John L. johnsims@localnet.com "...I served with VQ-2 from July 28, 1971 to July 5, 1974. Participated in the October 1973 Arab-Israeli Crisis flights to check on possible attack of our aircraft. EC 121 M 132392 "No. 32" that sawed its tail nearly clear off its last trip across the Atlantic. Also didn't mention the vibration when the port wing life raft let go at the same time as the antennae, like she was deciding to just let herself go in mid-air. Landed with an estimated 10 minutes of flying time before we would have lost the tail mid May 1974. Only made third class when Uncle Sam said "You're too fat and so get off my aircraft." Wonder what happened to the little butterball commander who was the most rotund little guy to fly such a big plane? Think his name was Chenoweth. Knew the guy, Steve Brown, that took the pictures of the three planes Willie, P-3E and AE3B in formation since he was the one to document the last plane in the air for the EC-121s before we left NS Rota, Spain in 1974. For at time I was in contact with Chief Wiggins who went to DC, Doughty, Groshong, Story and "PopTart" Letarte. Wonder where all those guys are now? I am currently in an old folks home in Central NY due to Parkinson's Disease, a problem with meds kept me in VA Hospital, Syracuse, NY for six months until this past February. Nearly died from heart attack 05/15/02, and three days later on a VA hospital stress table. The doc, she didn't appreciate her patients checking out before they get their tests finished, but we found out I am one in a billion -- when I get stressed my blood pressure drops to zero instead of going up - so I try not to get stressed. Funny, at 56, I don't feel old. I am writing my church's story for its bicentennial program September 19, 2004. Would like to hear from some of you guys, if you're still around. I just got on the internet this year as emergency communications to my two sisters, one of whom followed me into the Navy, the first under a CHAMPUS program for nurses -- at the age of 40! -- one of the first five to do so just before the first Gulf War, since they're both RNs. Does anyone have a spare patch from VQ-1, VQ-3, and VQ-4 from the 1970's? Would also like a transitional patch where the bodega man of San something vino companies is merging with the bat. Sangrea! Whooweee! Drank that stuff in three large glass tumblers a whole day (!!!) before a flight the next morning. Carried my head underneath my arms for the next two days. I was just barely functional that flight. Thank God we weren't in too serious a business. Willie girl wouldn't even leave the ground when we lost both No. 3 and 4 engines just before takeoff. It was so hot the props couldn't get good bites of air either..." [BIO Updated 16DEC2003 | 15DEC2003]

Flew the barrier in crew 25(?) (radio) for about a month, then was transferred to VW-13 Radio, around which time, the NAS Argentia, Newfoundland, Canada/ NAS Keflavik, Iceland deployments began. Flew over 100 barrier flights when project "Birdseye" was initiated. WV-2 BUNO 141325 was outfitted for arctic operation out of Thule AFB, Greenland and Eielson AFB, Alaska and I was lucky to be on the first Birdseye crew, flying as 1st radio. After several hair raising deployments over the North Pole (many untold stories) AEWINGLANT, at my urging, approved SSB Tranceivers to be installed on N41325, replacing the quite new ARC-38's, which only recently replaced the archaic ART-13's. Perhaps most memorable event for "Birdseye" was on the June 1962 deployment, flying the Captains of USS SKATE (SSN-578)- CDR J.L.Skoog - and USS SEADRAGON (SSN-584) - CDR C.D. Summit, over the polar route where ultimately, the historic event took place in July of 1962, when the 2 submarines rendezvoued under the icecap and surfaced at the North Pole. I still have that flight manifest, if anyone desires to see the roster. And to finish off my NAVY career of 4 yrs, my discharge was delayed for several weeks because of the Cuban Missle Crises of October 22, 1962.
