HistoryA BIT OF HISTORY: "...In 1960 a Warrant Officer presented our Skipper, J.L.Kauth, a live goose colored blue by some means (at quarters). The skipper had the goose kept in a cage outside the duty office at the old hangar we were in at the time with VP-6 and VP-28. A young Airman was assigned to clean the cage and one morning the goose was found hanging by the neck in his cage, dead. Cdr. Kauth directed the AIO, Ltjg Campbell to investigate and after some weeks he tendered his report, officially pronouncing as a result of his investigation that the goose had commited suicide. Mr. Campbell left the Navy as a Ltjg not too long afterward..." Contributed by Jim Lovely AMHC (RET) jlovely1@houston.rr.com [11JAN99]
