I was the skinny redheaded kid that ran the electronics parts department when I wasn't flying. I would be happy to hear from anyone who was there when I was.

EVANS, AD2 Martin (Marty) lmevans5@earthlink.net "...I served with VP-1 from 1975 through 1979. It was the most exciting experience, life altering, party party party, and still go fly times of my life! I miss the friendship and comraderie. I miss the Philippines deployments, but most of all, I miss the professionalism(sp) that we all had when it was time to do our jobs. We were the best at what we did! We trained, we tested, we partied, and we succeeded and surpassed what others had done before us. Now our kids or friends and neighbors kids have to carry the responsibility of defending our country. They don't have the luxury of serving our country during peacetime like I did. I don't worry or fear for our defenders because I know they are the best in the world. They know what's at stake - they will give their all. For us and those who disagree with us God Bless all serving our country now. My respect and prayers to all Sailors, Marines, Army, and Air Force! OK and Coasties. I give all my support to all our servicemen/women serving now and hope we kick butt on all our enemies. It's what you (and us old butts) trained for and I know you're going to make us proud. Where is T. C. (Top Cat) Stevens my Engineer and Greg Smock my smelly AO "roommate" in the Philippines from 1975 through 1976? Probably still driving the porcelein bus? I've talked to Don Waugh, Randy Weisgerber, boo-boo, and Jackie Backoffer in the last 20 years. Where is the rest of you guys? I know your out there! Oh, just a reminder, YB-07 was cursed - we knew it and hated flying that bird! Finally starting to see some old friends names pop-up like Abe Villareal (is Chief Got still houding you to re-up?), Dave Hough (where's Kitty Katz?), John and Jim Zimmer (the best squadron insignia artist), Mark Weizenegger (hard to spell), and last seen at Boo-Boo's wedding. Hope to have our Reunion someday..." [01DEC2001]
