Memorial Picture "...FARWELL, CDR Warren E. Shipmate PixCirca 1954/1955 ...I am currently stationed in San Diego as XO of Naval Air Technical Data and Engineering Service Command (NATEC). My late father, CDR Warren E. Farwell, completed flight training in NAS Pensacola, Florida, 1954-55. He completed carrier qualifications by landing onboard USS SAIPAN (CVL-48) and earning his Naval Aviator Wings of Gold on December 27, 1955. Stationed initially as a flight instructor at NAS Hutchinson, Kansas, he later moved to NAS Whidbey Island, Washington where Warren flew P2V "Neptune" anti-submarine patrol bombers in squadron VP-2. Leaving active duty in 1960, Warren continued flying in the U.S. Navy Reserves at NAS Minneapolis, Minnesota and Chicago until July 1978 and retired with the rank of Commander having logged over 4,000 hours of flight time in many types of aircraft ranging from the SNJ "Texan" trainer, SNB "Kansan," PB4Y2 "Privateer," S-2 "Tracker" and nearly every version of his favorite P2V. It is my father's "fault" that I joined the Navy and have had a career that I would not trade a single minute of for anything else. No amount of money could match the wealth of friendships, camaraderie, fun and adventure I have had. I never did a VP tour, as an Aviation Maintenance Duty Officer (AMDO) I found myself aboard carriers and spent about 7 years of my 20 underway. Thanks, Dad! CDR John Farwell john.farwell@navy.mil..."

FAAS, ARM3 Dan c/o Mr. Frank Holmes Shipmate PixCirca 1944 fholmes101@aol.com "...I retired from the Navy in Nov '68 & lived in Oak Harbor right outside NAS & they have had many FAW-4 Reunion at the CPO club & golf tournaments & I know some people in passing. I never went to the Reunions, but I would ask people who had attended. If they mentioned the "SCOUTS" NADA. I said that's how they treated us, so why would it be any different now. In fact. I just attended a reunion for Heavy Attack Squadron Ten, VAH-10. I was in it on the USS Constellation CVA-64 when the Viet Nam fiasco started in 1964. I also belong to the Fleet Reserve Association and (VP-45) Patron Forty Five Assn, an outfit I was in for 4 yrs. During the Korean affair NAS Norfolk, Virginia & NAS Coco Solo, Panama, Canal Zone flying PBM-5s. I guess I've been in every sort of outfit imaginable. I started in PBYs, went to a VJ-3 outfit utility squadron, then to VS-48, to instructor duty in NAS Corpus Christi, Texas to NAS Memphis, Tennessee to VF-61 NAS Oceana, Va. We had F8F's made a North Atlantic Cruise on FDR straight deck. Came back and got F9Fs. They didn't rate any Aviation Radiomen & I got transferred to USS USS Valcour (AVP-55) as an RM TX to VP-45 PBM - shore duty NAS Boca Chica, Florida & flew in F3D's radar operator. Then to "B" school in Memphis - to Hawaii 56-59 VW-12 Early Warning Squadron, flew many 16 hour flights WV-2 (Constellations). Changed rate from AL1 to AT1 and got transferred to next hangar VP-6 and deployed to Japan for 7 months flying off Kaua & USSR measuring their radar & locating them & getting chased by MIG's. Every hop was 14-16 hours. Used the jets and the recips for take off, carried 4000 gallons of fuel. Shore duty again, a RAG outfit VAH-123. I was electronic shop chief, we had 30 A/C and lots of maintenance. I did fly for a while as a radioman in a P2V-3 till they got A3D2T's & A3D2Q's & A3D2P's (thats trainer/transport) "q" countermeasure & "P" photo plus basic A3D2. They called it shore duty - we had three shifts around the clock plus I was making carrier quals every month or so. Lets see Coral Sea CVA-43, Bon Homme Richard CVA-31, Ticonderoga CVA-14, Independence CVA-62, Lexington CV-16. More sea duty VAH-10 A3D2, could have flown as a crewman. By that time I had in 20 & declined -- let the young studs do that. Med 9 month cruise in '63 and 1 yr in '64 (Viet Nam) I was gone 30 mos out of a 3 year tour. When we came back from Viet Nam in 3 mos they sent our squadron to Air Group 1 on the FDR for a Med cruise. About that time my children were young teenagers & I figured I had enough of that BS so I got shore duty at NAS Whidbey Island, Washington in VAH-123 again. Formed VA-128 Light Attack with A-6s and the RAG outfit. I was Electronics shop Chief again & some BS. Going on carrier qual for pilots. They had beach dets and ship dets. Seemed like I always got the ship det. While on the FDR I was CAG Maintenance Chief. The ship was out of Mayport, Fla. When we went on carrier quals on the Independence, we flew to NAS Norfolk, Virginia to get aboard & the Lexington out of NAS Pensacola, Florida all the other carrier quals were out of NAS Alameda, California or NAS North Island, San Diego, California & Fleet Logistic A/C junk. Now they have nice jet transports. That's all behind now. I worked for the Navy for about 9 years as a electronic tech then the FAA and my wife and I went to Alaska over the Arctic Circle as a electronic tech. It was like living in the 20's and 30's, no TV and not much radio. We were at a place called Bettles Field a lot of local flying in small planes. I maintained equipment VHF for over the poles flights, they talked to Anchorage but was all keyed through our equipment. Also had TACAN & OMNI also had glide slope equipment. I had to maintain teletype equipment as an electronic tech. But the money was in the wage grade positions so when an opening came, I Tx to Juneau where I had the teletype shop. I took care of all the teletype in SE Alaska for the FAA & Weather Service. There were 8 people in Anchorage that took care of the rest of Alaska. So when I had 40 years service I quit. For a number of years we had a 5th wheel trailer and did the snow bird bit to Arizona & California, even went to Key West and Corpus Christi played a lot of golf. Had 2 children,daughter Sidney & Mark. Sid born in Panama, Mark in Memphis. Sid worked around the world in banking London, Jobere, Melbourne, Vienna, NYC. Then she decided to work out of Seattle. We sold our house out of Oak Harbor, Whidbey Is and we live with her. Mark lives in Reston, he is a heavy truck mechanic and has our two grand persons. Lets see who have I run into. There was a fellow named Bass in Dutch and he made Ens there. That was in 44-45. In '45 I went aboard the FDR and who should be the JOOD but Ens Bass. In the early 50s flew from NAS Coco Solo, Panama, Canal Zone to NAS Norfolk, Virginia to go to a FAETU School & Fleet exercises & ran into "Scratch", we called him that, his name Gene Foreman AOM3/c, I know 3 incidents involving ordnance he had a hand in -- two in Dutch Harbor. I ran into Mr Mathwick in Memphis in 1955. He was a Commander and the Legal Officer. Also Burt Johnson - he was another radioman at Dutch. He got married while we were back to Seattle to train for the SBW4Es. I was his best man and I got married a week or so later and he was my best man. They came up and visited us a few years back. Also Bill Pietz, we visited them in Calif when we went there several times. I also ran into Pena AOM3/c in Corpus in 1946. Also ran into Ortega AM1/c , I'm sure he stayed in & retired. I have a lot of pictures (snapshots). I'm looking at a 8x10 of Det 3 Dutch Harbor. It was taken while Johnson, Peitz and I were back in Seattle. 14 EMs and 4 Officers and I have all the names on the back. I have a nice picture I think of an SBD Taxiing in blowing snow. I also have some of the new birds SBW4Es and the USS Teal AVP-5. In case you are wondering I didn't get to fly back with the planes, came back on the Teal - 65 normal complement, 250 VS48 people. Sleep where you can find a place. 19 days from Dutch Harbor. I slept in the main whale boat. I had a sleeping bag. Most people slept on army cots on the fan tail except we hit the tail end of a typhoon and everybody had to sleep inside. For a few days we only made 1 knot, a real rough ride. After we hit the inside passage they dropped the hook every night, didn't seem like they were in any gig hurry to get back. Say, I'm running out of spit. Maybe you can make some sense out of all this rambling..." [20JUN2005]

FABIK, George G. a66fox@verizon.net "...I served with VP-23 (1949 NAS Masters Field, Miami, Florida) and we flew the PB4Y-2 Privateers. Our tail letters were EH and the squadron insignia was the two "Hurricane Warning" flags. We may have been the first hurricane hunter squadron. We did lose several aircraft. The movie "Slatterys Hurricane" was filmed at Miami with VP-23...While serving with VP-56 in 1962 I was honored to be chosen for the UNITAS tour of South America. We were UNITAS IV. What were the squadrons that were involved in the first three tours and how long did they go on. It was a fantastic trip that I will never forget. I'm not sure of this but I heard that the squadron of UNITAS III didn't make the entire trip because of the Cuban Crisis and had to be recalled..."

As navigator I remember using the old Loran (A or B?) system and never believing our inertial navigation system. I also took a few star shots back then. I always have thought the Navy did their best teaching in Nav school (NAS Corpus Christi, Texas) during pilot training. We lost a plane with 4-5 crew that blew up over Searchlight, Nevada, during my time in the squadron. (SEE: VP-17 Crew - In Memorium - VP-17 Crew).

FAIR, Harold "Bud" [Deceased] c/o His Son Dennis Fair dennisfair@aol.com "...My dad, Harold "Bud" Fair from VPB-119 crew 12. He is now deceased as of 01 10 98. He died quickly from the flu. Otherwise he was just fine considering. He lived in Anaheim for 30 years then moved to Junction City Ca. where he passed away. I have his squadron book and his flight log that he kept. He was shot up over China in June, 1945. That discharged him from the Navy. He managed to re-enlist for one day at NAS Los Alamitos, California before he discharged him. He returned to Western Gear in LA where he worked cutting gears at the time the war started. He later began a career with Compton Police Department in California and ended his law enforcement career at Anaheim Police Department in 1973. Bud was aware of the Reunions for the various squadrons. I think he went to one. I forgot where that was. He was reluctantto attend because he said the units had been combined and the crews were all mixed up. And most of his original squadrons were gone. They did not return from their missions. I remember him going through the squadron book and putting his finger on crew after crew and telling me they were all killed. That was sad to hear. He quoted some fond memories of a lot of the guys. He would point hour their picture as he told about them. The last I knew of Spatrisano, (Spats) that he resided in the Dakotas or Min. Somewhere up in that area. Kingery (Crew 16) also lived in the Northern part of the country. "Skipper" Murphy lived in Florida. They all used to keep in touch. I only wish I would have sat down and made notes on all of the pictures in the squardon book reference the action photos. He was personally on some of those missions that were recorded. Does anyone know what the actual translation on the Japanese wrting on the cover? I am not sure if I should risk offending someone by showing it for a translation. I don't have a problem with doing, but today who knows how people will react now..." [27APR2002]

Really did enjoy making AO 3, then my watches were in the Duty Office, delivering coffee to the others freezing on the outside watches. Got lucky in Feb. '53 and was sent TAD NS Roosevelt Roads, PR for Opeation Springboard, supporting VP-7 and VP-8. I remember an AO Miller, stating that he almost turned white in an aborted landing there. I was out near the landing strip. I didn't think they were going to get back up before the props hit the deck, really close call. Would love to hear from anyone that was around during those years to contact me. I have a homepage at http://adrinfarley.homepage.com/index.html. I have links there to Photo albums, VP NAVY, and AAOrdies. Will put up some of my Navy Pics on my photo album. Friends, it has been a great trip through the years from 1928 till now.

Enroute to Honolulu one of the tanks started to leak and fill the bombbay with fuel. There was some scaring moments before we got the leaked stopped.
