NOTICE: "...I found a coin that says Department of the Navy United Staes of America on one side and on the other it says Presented by Commanding Officer Condors VP-64. I found it a long time ago and I don't even remember where I found it. I would love for someone to have it (free) that it would mean something to. I am in a military family so I know how important things like that can be! So, just let me know if any former Shipmate is interested. Thank you..."

Disestablishment of Commander Reserve Patrol Wing
NOTICE: "...Being that the NAS Willow Grove, Pennsylvania CPOA will disestablish in April 2011, we're trying to determine the year it was actually established. Our current records don't have that information. I'm looking for plankowners from VP-64, VP-66, VP-1123 or VP-2493 to possibly help us. Any and all help will be appreciated, even if you can just point us in the direction of who else might know. Thanks..." Contributed by GENSCH, Mike email@example.com [14MAR2010]

This invitation is extended to ALL personnel active duty, FTS/TAR & SelRes who served in any Reserve VP Squadron (VP-60, VP-62, VP-64, VP-65, VP-66, VP-67, VP-68, VP-69, VP-90, VP-91, VP-92, VP-93, VP-94, VP-MAU, VP-SAU/SRU), any Reserve VP Training Command (RATCEN, RESASWTAC, RESASWTAC East/RESASWTAC West) or any Reserve VP Support Unit (TSC units, MOCC units).
On 23 June 2007, following the Change of Command for Capt. Ken Lewko (VP-92,VP-66, CO RATCEN, Wing CSO, etc.) there will be a "celebration" of sorts, to commemorate Commander Reserve Patrol Wing (formerly COMRESPATWINGLANT & COMRESPATWINGPAC) at its Disestablishment. It is thought that this would be the best "Last Chance" for those that have served in the Reserve Force Maritime Patrol Aviation community across the years to get together one last time and remember the long and proud heritage of which each of us is a part.
Plans are underway, with a major question being "how many will attend?" If you plan on attending please send an email response to:
You should then receive an evite invitation which will provide additional details and costs. You must return the evite with payment in order to ensure access to the event.
Date: 23 June 2007
Place: NAS Willow Grove, Pennsylvania
