TUCKER, AT3 Bob tucker3926@suddenlink.net "...I volunteered from FASRON-701 at NAS Miramar, California to the 4 plane P4M1-Q squadron in August,1951. In late September, 1951 we departed NAS Miramar, California and were stationed at NS Sangley Point, Philippines. Our squadron commander was LT John Douglass. The three other Patrol Plane Commanders were LT Dannettle, LT(jg) Nesbitt, and LT(jg) Dunn. I flew as the navigational radar operator with all four crews at various times, but mainly with Douglas and Nesbitt crews. All four crews were exceptional good plane and squadron mates. We served a 30 month tour and then rotated back to the states. So the original squadron was manned by replacements by late 1953. I rotated to NAS North Island, San Diego, California and was assigned to FASRON-4 being discharged in November 1954. The P4M was a great plane and a real pleasure to fly in during our from 9-14 hour patrols. If any information is available about any original members of Squadron VW-1-Det "Able" I sure would like to hear from them. The only one I have had contact with is AL1 Al Wellnitz, a great radio man and a very wonderful person.

TUELL, Ramsey Marcus Retired exweather2@aol.com "...I am a retired twenty year sailor and was station on Okinawa at NAF Naha, Okinawa, Japan and in FASRON-118 for 18 months during 1956-1958. Our squadron mission was to support the fleet in aircraft maintenance. True, we supported VP-5, that was also station on the island; however, about 50% of our work was heavy maintenance that came ashore from the fleet. And, of course, 50% of our work was on the Peter-Two-Victor-Five-Fox. We also maintained COMNAVAIRPATPAC's (I think that's right) aircraft, a TF-1 and a UF-1. As you can see the total of our work amounts to about 130%. Not unusual for sailors even when the manning levels were at 70% of what they should be. I made my first trip to Vetnam (there were 3) while in that squadron. This was prior to the advisors being sent over. I was an AD/ADR. Then I was sent to Jet Engine school at Opama, Japan, and upon return to Okinawa started the first Jet Engine Shop ever in FASRON-118. I also picked up a jet engine NEC and became a ADJ and with jet engines came tail hooks. I had nine years in before I went to sea. After that I made two cruises to the Gulf of Tokin, one cruise around the Horn and two cruises to the Med. and all the qual cruises that went with them. Sorry if I got carried away. It has been a long time and my mind is burning with memories. I don't remember ever hearing that FASRON-118 was station on Guam. I know it must be true but, I'm surprised. I would like to get a FASRON-118 squadron patch. Come Back..." [26JUL2001]

(Bull) tturnbull405@msn.com "...I was really glad to find this site and read all the info it has on the 1992 crash of the two P-3s (SEE In Memorial for lost friends March 21st, 1991). I spent nearly four years in VP-50 from 1965-69 all through our transition from the P5M to the P-3 in 67-68. I went through FE training and flew for a short while with our CDR Captain Kidd, a rather short man about my height. I really liked him. I look through our deployment book every now and then. I am really gratefull to have it now. I helped LCDR Dow collect the accident remains from the SG-13 crash in 68 (SEE: VP-50 In Memorial for lost friends January 6th, 1967). They later blamed the 5" rocket for blowing up on the wing for that Mishap. They seemed to do that a lot. I remember that very distinctly. He later became my pilot until I left in october of 69. I was awake that morning living back in sisconsin when the news came over tv about the crash. My heart went into my throut and I could not believe my ears. We had flown that area many times while practicing asw. For some reason the anouncer had learned the squadrons name and announced it on TV. I am sure that was a foul up. All I could think of was what went wrong. We always left station and came on station at predetermined altitudes. It seemed impossible it could happen. At last I can feel I know somewhat happen. God bless them all. Hopefully I can attend a memorial one of these years. Thank you all for your heartfealt comments..." [27NOV2004]
