Memorial Picture "...STONECIPHER, CAPTAIN E. Thomas...Shipmate Pix (CO VP-56 - Circa 1950)...I regret to inform his old squadron mates of the passing of my father, CAPTAIN E. Thomas Stonecipher Retired, 83, on December 3, 2003, in San Antonio, TX. Dad entered the Navy in 1940 and was commissioned in March 1941. He served as a black shoe officer aboard the USS Altair in the Pacific and Caribbean, attended flight school in 1943 at NAS Dallas, Texas and NAS Pensacola, Florida, and served the rest of the war flying PBM Mariners with VP-215 and VP-204 in the Caribbean and Atlantic. Post-war he served with the Atlantic fleet aviation training unit, with VP-49, and was Commanding Officer of VP-56 in 1955 when it earned the Navy "E." In those later years he was flying P5M Marlins. For most of the rest of his naval career he was in the nuclear weapons program in landlocked New Mexico and Germany, so had to grab what flight time he could get with the Air Force or Army -- and he always marveled at how comparatively easy land planes were to fly and operate! After retiring from the Navy in 1965, he went on to a great second career in youth training programs, but always looked back with profound satisfaction to his years with the patrol squadron Navy.

I have written the National Personnel Record Center-Military Section, but as yet have not received a reply. I stumbled across this web-site while researching the PV-1 Ventura. I have a squadron patch from VPB-150, a B/W photograph of the insignia, a couple pictures of a PV-1 or PV-2 bearing the number Y474, and also a few pictures of whom I would assume were his commanding officers. He would have served as either a pilot or flight engineer. He was on active duty from January 1943 until November 1946. He was recalled to active duty in 1951 through 1956, based in NAS Patuxent River, Maryland with VR-1. He was again mobilized in April 1962 in NAS South Weymouth, Massachusetts where I believe he was the CO of VR-914. His rank at that time was CDR.

My early period in VP-21 included a cornucopia of different experiences: week aboard the submarine USS Cobbler (SS-344) out of New London, good will visit to Nova Scotia with Canadian ASW forces flying Argus aircraft and an unforgettable experience in northern Maine woods at SERE School. Had squadron assignments as Materials Officer and as Safety Officer. Later, I was fortunate as a young Lieutenant to be designated PPC of CAC-12.

We never aborted a flight and CAC-12 got the patrols no one else wanted. My final CO was CDR Mike Johnson, a very fine officer and inspiring leader. I was separated from the squadron in July 1967.

There were 8 ac per squadron. I was in VD-3 which made two tours 1942-43 and 1944-45 in the Pacific.

We ended war on Okinawa operating off Yontan and later Yanabaru. Photoed Formosa, China, Japan home islands, prep for Overlord. Used Water Cameras, photoed Hiroshima after the bomb. Survived Oct 9, 1945 Typhoon and photoed ship wreckage afterwards. We were set up to photo China with tri-metragon camera setups. We had about 20 combat missions per aircraft.

STOTT, AD3 Marvin pema123@charter.net "...I served with VR-2 for one year from early in 1954 until my discharge in 1955. I was an AD3 assigned to aircraft maintenance. Specifically, I was assigned to the engine crew responsible for maintenance of engine #2. It was during this time that the classic "Formation of Four" photo was taken. This photo appears twice in the Glenn Martin Mars Aircraft section. From front to back in the photo they are: 76820-Philippine 76821-Marianas 76823-Hawaii 75824-Caroline The taking of this photo presented some difficulty. Usual photos of four aircraft in formation is nothing special but when there are only four in existance it is much more difficult. Normal operation was three aircraft in flight status and one in overhaul. In addition one aircraft was usually in Hawaii and rarly were they all three at Alameda at the same time. To obtain this photo it meant that all four had to be in NAS Alameda, California and in flying status at the same time, no mean trick. As I recall they only had one day to get the picture for flight schedule reasons or the one aircraft was due into overhaul the next day. Anyway, it was a typical overcast Bay Area day so they had to climb above the overcast to get the proper lighting. The resulting picture was later made available to all squadron personnel. Maybe someone else closer to the planning for this photo shoot can add to or correct this account. I would be very interested to hear any additional information..."

STRONG, CDR Tom tom.e.strong@earthlink.net "...I served about 2.5 years with VP-62 between 1989 and 1991 as an OSAM NFO. The experience was great right up to the last moment when the Navy said to leave active duty and become a SELRES. Nothing against the SELRES bunch, but I needed full time employment and took a job with NOAA as a navigator on the WP-3D hurricane hunter variant. After about 5 years, and mainly due to a pilot shortage and hiring freeze, NOAA sent me back to flight training. I squeeked through and became a Lake Seawolf and DHC-6 pilot. In an ironic twist of fate, 3 years later, NOAA then sent me back to the Navy as a pilot and a tour with the Naval Research Lab (NRL). What a great unit and bunch of folks! They were apprehensive at first since I was a trans-vest-FO but eventually they taught me everything a growing P-3 pilot needed to know. Now I'm back at NOAA and punching through hurricanes from the front seat and loving every minute of it. I'm a CDR now and still view my tour at VP-62 as some of the best years of my life..."
