Memorial Picture "...LYNN, CAPTAIN Joseph Sr...My father, CAPTAIN Joseph Lynn Sr., Retired recently died of what he called 'general breakdown'. He did so with all of his 6 children surviving, and as a recent great grandfather. After the death of his beloved wife Janet in 1995, my father remarried, and my dearly beloved step-mom Peggy is now graced with more children than she can control. I'm hoping to create a webpage in honor of one of the most impressive persons I've ever met, and I would appreciate any comments, photos or information that any of the thousands of people who've had the fortune to meet him might add. I would especially like to hear from his old squadron members (CO VP-6, CO USS Albemarle (AV-5), XO NAS Pensacola, Florida, CO NAAS Saufley Field, Pensacola, Florida, Naval War College, and then to staff NAS Norfolk, Virginia) and Dewey Ostrom, if anyone knows whether he's still around. Joe Lynn (very junior) joe@idatic.net..." [25JAN2003]

Memorial Picture "...LYONS, CDR Dale S...I wonder why no listing is included fo Dale S. Lyons NAP CDR deceased. He lost a foot on Ford island during the Pearl harbor raid and returned to flight status with a false foot. He was grounded when they found he had sugar diabetes. Dale then became the prime drone pilot in the Navy operating many types of drones including F6F, and even F-80 during the Bikini atom bomb tests, he was borrowed by the USAF for this project. He also had a tour at NAMTC NAS Point Mugu, California. I hope he is not forgotten for he made real contributions to the Naval Aviation history.

LYSAGHT, AT1(AW/NAC) Walter Retired augustbug@ev1.net "...I served with VQ-3 TACAMO from 1975-1981 (NAC), then went to VQ-2 from 1981-1984 as shore duty Aircrew flying EP-3A and EP-3B (Deepwell and Aeries I). I started in Special Projects and when they converted my billet to sea duty, I was transferred into the EP-3 Avionics Shop. Talk about a small world. AT1 Bruce Colby was my instructor for my previous TACAMO school, and ATCS Bruce Colby (same guy) gives me my AES checkride while we're flying out of Greece. NOTE: The Reserves were flying PP-3's by 1981. I also was there when the Seawing bird (EA3) went off to the boneyard after getting a flight waiver. Plane was older than the guys flying it! From VQ-2 I went to VQ-4 TACAMO (NAC) 1984-1989, and onto NATC Force Warfare Aircraft Division in NAS Patuxent River, Maryland 1989-1992. And what do I see in the hanger, but an Aeries II!!!! VQ is finally getting new planes and with new equipment inside as well! Made my heart glad to see that. You guys in VQ-1 and VQ-2 had done so much with so little, for so long that they expected you to do everything with nothing, forever. I didn't get to work on the Aeries II, I was in the R&M Department working with the E-6A that was to replace the EC-130Q's that I flew in TACAMO. After that, it was one last tour in VQ-4 with a homeport change tossed in the middle of the tour (all while the squadron is flying 24/7 coverage with no standown) just to make it interesting. I really enjoyed VQ-2 (maybe not some of the mickey mouse), but the people were great and so was Spain. I was able to see a lot of Europe. VQ-2's official / un-official OPS Motto will serve you well. "Plan on Yes…. maybe No…. I'll let you know in an hour"!..." [14JUN2003]

LYTLE, James bigshot454@hotmail.com "...Serving in the early 1970's was not as "cool" then, as it is now.

Thanks to Uncle Sam for trusting a 19 year old kid with life keeping responsibilities. Jim Lytle NATC NAS Patuxent River, Maryland 1972-1975 and VP-24 1975-1976..." [02APR2002]
