PATTERSON, AD1 Rayford "Pat" Retired jeejinyobo@hotmail.com "...I entered the Navy and was assigned to VA-203 from 1974 to 1976. I made E-3 in 1977 and transfer'd to VR-58 where I was the lowest ranked guy there. Plenty of aircraft washes for me! I served with a bunch of great guys there. I helped design the current "Sunseeker Patch" and painted a mural in the old hangar stairwell. Later (1979) I got transfer'd to VR-59 in Dallas which wasn't ready so I TAD'ed to VR-54 C-118's for 3 years. Finally the C-9's came (3 brand new birds) and went to VR-59. I did design its current Texas "Star" patch. Left there in 1984 or so and went to NAF Detroit, Michigan to start up VR-62. Got 50 Bucks for helpng design that patch. Left VR-62 to go to VR-60 in NAS Memphis, Tennessee. The left NAS Memphis, Tennessee and returned to NAF Detroit, Michigan AIMD and closed that base. I gues you could say I was a pofessional C-9 Squadron Starter with 3 under my belt. All the people I worked with in the Navy were a great buch of Guy's and Gal's. After I etired I went to work for Connie Kallita at AIA for many years. Currently I am in Riyadh Saudi Arabia working with Pratt and Whitney. Aviation has been my life. Please any of my old shipmates feel free to contact me. I would love to hear from you...." [31MAY2004]
