OROSCO, Jim S. Jimyo@aol.com "...When I first joined the Navy in 1946, I reported to VPB-146 at NAS Alameda, California, after the usual boot camp, and the next thing I knew we were on board a carrier bound for Pearl Harbor and I was in a flight crew for 2 yrs 7 months and 17 days of typical young sailor bitching. So I left the Navy and went to work, still bitching, but then the Chinese crossed the Yalu and I was off to war again on the USS Princeton, still bitching, so they threw me off the ship and into VP-772 and I stopped bitching and started doing some real flying in PB4Y2 aircraft. You can't be a weenie in those old birds and I loved it. We went back to NAS Whidbey Island, Washington and picked up P2V-6 A/C and they were fine too. So in 1955 it was instructor duty at NAS Memphis, Tennessee time and to make a long story shorter, wound up in VP-17 again and still loved it. Since then I have been to a Reunion at Pahrumph and at San Diego. Now I am looking forward to the one in Seattle in 00. My last VP was VP-50 to Cam Ran Bay in P-3C. Hope to see some more of my old buddies there..." [25SEP98]
