LENNON, AK2 Jack johnljoanl@aol.com "...I was stationed at NAF Annapolis, Maryland immediately upon graduation from Great Lakes in August of 1950. We served on PBM5-A's and JRF grumman gooses. We also had a bunch of N3N yellow perils. This was in 1950-1952 time frame. I had a lot of good times and served with a lot of great guys; was even married at the Naval Station Chapel and we had our first boy (one of 7) born at the Naval Academy; so, a lot of fond memories still exist. Too bad they had to close it and I understand that they tore down the radio towers; I used to enjoy going up at night on the flight deck of the USS Block Island (our barracks at the time) and seeing the 12 or so blinking on and off lights on giant Xmas trees. Then there were the duty boat rides across the Severn River; our liberty launches taking us on a well earned respit after a long day of launching and retreiving the N3N aircraft entertaining the Midshipmen; trying to entice them into becoming Naval Aviators. From there I was ordered to Oceana Virginia and joined FASRON-121 who was about to deploy (in LST's) to Vieques. I beleive VP-7 and VP-11 did several training weeks with us. What an interesting job that was, hitting the beach with field packs, and living in tents like a bunch of junglebunnies. It was about a 90 day tour. We then packed up (now late 1953) and we deployed to NAS Chincoteague, Virginia. I left the squadron around late June or July and was discharged in August 1954..."

LEWIS, CDR William Andrew Jackson http://www.geocities.com/Pentagon/Quarters/7858/bios/lewiswaj.html "...After graduation from the Naval Acadamey on 06 June 1940, he received orders to report to USS CALIFORNIA, AKA "Prune Barge." Following a memorable and historic June leave, he reported aboard at Bremerton and was assigned to the Engineering Dept. as Main Engine Division Officer. He was aboard CALIFORNIA when she was sunk at Pearl Harbor on December 7, 1941. In February, 1942, Bill returned to the states to report as Main Engine Division Officer aboard USS INDIANA, which was under construction at Newport News, VA. In May, on completion of sea trials, the ship proceeded to Noumea, New Caledonia, to operate with a task force during the Guadalcanal and Solomons campaigns. INDIANA moved up to Pearl for some repairs then joined a fast carrier task force for the first raid on Marcus Island. In 1944, after L.T.A. flight training at NAS Moffett Field, California, Bill reported as Executive Officer of ZP-14, then became Commanding Officer of ZP-14, which provided anti-submarine coverage fortraffic in and out of NAS Norfolk, Virginia and the east coast. After VE Day, Bill received orders to report to USS RENO as Chief Engineer and remained on board in that capacity for the balance of the war. She was decommissioned and laid up in the reserve fleet at Bremerton, Washington. Resignation from the Regular Navy was submitted and accepted in the summer of 1946, at which time Bill returned to Ruston, LA, to become active in a family-owned department store. He accepted a commission in the Naval Reserve and organized and served as Commanding Officer of a U.S. Naval Reserve Surface Division located on the campus of La. Tech University. During this time, he was promoted to the rank of Commander, with which rank he retired. Business affiliations have been with Lewis & Company, Ltd., a 105- year-old department store, and Jaclin Corp., a timber and real estate development company, serving as president of both. Leisure time has been devoted to sailing, traveling and family activities. Carolyn and Bill will celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary this year (now it can be told). Two daughters and two sons and their spouses have made them the fortunate grandparents of six granddaughters and three grandsons. Looking back over the past fifty years, they are thankful for a wonderful, devoted family, good health, a close group of classmates and a great life --who could ask for anything more?..."

LEYNES, John A. Jr. john@flarr.com "...I joined the United States Navy in December of 1967 in Jacksonville Florida. I served 2 tours of duty, having re-upped or reenlisted for a second time in 1970. As an enlisted man during the Vietnam Era, I earned my AirCrew Wings and served as an aircrew member in Antisubmarine Patrol Squadron VP-7F-2 based at NAS Jacksonville, Florida. I flew many patrol missions off the East Coast of Florida keeping track of Soviet submarines, both conventional and nuclear powered. It was surprising how many of them were out there and how close they were to the United States. When I began service, we flew in the old World War II vintage Lockheed P2V Neptune's. Toward the end of my service, we finally got the newer Lockheed P-3A Orion aircraft. I was honorably discharged from the Navy in 1975..."
