Memorial Picture "...TWEEDY, Glenn and WOOD, Robert...Sadly I must report the deaths of my two shipmates Robert Wood and Glenn Tweedy. Bob passed away in Feb. 2001 while shoveling snow in his driveway. His collapse was witnessed by his married daughter who attempted to revive him, all to no avail. Bob was mentor to many of us who flew with him. He was a Navy man, but particularly, he was always a friend first. He constantly offered advice which, at the time, did not seem like advice, but which always proved to be beneficial both on and off the crew. He was just a great guy to go on liberty with, and a great guy to fly with. Glen Tweedy passed away from cancer in 2001. He had battled this for some time, I understand. We affectionately called Glenn, "Tweety bird." He made the last Reunion of VP-23. What a small and diminishing world we live in. God bless and keep our service men and women safe.

TWARDY, Edward S. etwardy@earthlink.net "...Enlisted in 1957 on "kiddy cruise" and enjoyed bootcamp at Bainbridge, MD - Company 132. TAD to NAS Glynco, Georgia in late '57 then, in '58 to AE "A" school in NAS Jacksonville, Florida. Served in VT-2 (1958-61) working on T28-C's and then transferred to VP Navy for 1st sea duty - VP-30 in late 61 and joined VP-7 in NAS Sigonella, Sicily on '62 deployment there. Flew with Crew 10 and then Crew 1 overseas and worked the AE shop when stateside. Enjoyed NAS Guantanamo Bay, Cuba during blockade - I took a lot of pictures of Iron Curtain freighters during that little exercise while hanging in the afterstation of old LB 10 (BuNo 131431). Shipped to "B" school in '66 and then to NAS Norfolk, Virginia for shore duty until transfer to VRC-40. Stayed there with a good bunch of guys (lots of Roosy deployments) until '73, then NADC (Warminister) Johnsville, Pennsylvania until transfer to Fleet Reserve in June '76. Earned MA and Ph.D from University of Virginia and spent from '79 - 03 as college professor and dean at Universities of Nebraska, Virgina and Vermont. Retired from academia in '03 and now serve as founder and president of a small research company working for the DoD. I still keep in touch with several Shipmates significant in my life...but think often about many others with whom I've lost touch. I'd like to hear from the guys with whom I worked - especially on the line at South Whiting Field, VP-7, VRC-40 and NADC (Warminister) Johnsville, Pennsylvania. Best wishes to my old pals..."
