Memorial Picture "...MOORER, Admiral Thomas H...(Served with VP-22, VB-132, FAW-2, FAW-10, and USS Salisbury Sound (AV-13)) - Retired U.S. Navy Adm. Thomas Moorer, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from July 1970 to June 1974 and chief of naval operations from 1967 to 1970, died today at the National Naval Medical Center in Bethesda, Md. He was 91. The 41-year Navy veteran retired from active duty in 1974, ending a distinguished career that included service as the seventh chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff and 18th chief of naval operations. Secretary of the Navy, the Honorable Gordon England, praised the admiral's distinguished service by saying, "Admiral Thomas Moorer served his country with honor, courage and commitment throughout his active and dynamic life. "His bravery in combat, his dedication and strong leadership as chief of naval operations and chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff guided our Navy, and our armed forces, through some of the most turbulent years in America's history." Marine Corps Gen. Peter Pace, vice chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, said, "I was deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Admiral Tom Moorer. He served the United States Navy and our great nation with distinction. Admiral Moorer's legacy, as both chief of naval operations, and as the seventh chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has made a lasting impression on all of us who have followed. "On behalf of General Myers, and all the Joint Chiefs of Staff, I offer our heartfelt condolences. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Moorer family during this difficult time. May you draw comfort from your memories, as we remember fondly how Admiral Moorer served his country - and all of us - so well." Chief of Naval Operations Adm. Vern Clark added, "Admiral Moorer's leadership had a profound impact on our institution and a personal influence on many of us who were fortunate enough to serve under him. He displayed extraordinary courage both in combat and in the process of instituting positive change throughout our military." Born Feb. 9, 1912, in Mt. Willing, Ala., Adm. Moorer graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1933. After completing naval aviation training at the Pensacola Naval Air Station in 1936, he flew with fighter squadrons based on the carriers Langley, Lexington and Enterprise. Adm. Moorer was serving with Patrol Squadron Twenty-Two at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, when the Japanese attacked in December 1941. His squadron subsequently participated in the Dutch East Indies Campaign in the Southwest Pacific where he flew numerous combat missions. Moorer received a Purple Heart after being shot down and wounded off the coast of Australia in February 1942 and then surviving an attack on the rescue ship, which was sunk by enemy action the same day. Moorer received the Distinguished Flying Cross for his valor three months later when he braved Japanese air superiority to fly supplies into and evacuate wounded out of the island of Timor. Tours afloat included operations officer aboard USS Midway and on the staff of Commander Carrier Division Four, Atlantic Fleet. Moorer commanded USS Salisbury Sound. Promoted to vice admiral in 1962, Moorer took command of the Seventh Fleet, and in June 1964 became commander in chief of the Pacific Fleet as a full admiral. One year later, he took command of NATO's U.S. Atlantic Command and the U.S. Atlantic Fleet, becoming the first naval officer to command both the Pacific and Atlantic Fleets. President Johnson appointed him chief of naval operations in 1967, and after serving almost three years, President Nixon selected him to be chairman of the Joints Chiefs of Staff--the first naval officer to hold this position in 13 years. On July 2, 1974, Adm. Moorer retired from active duty. At his retirement ceremony, a second Department of Defense Distinguished Service Medal was presented by Secretary of Defense James R. Schlesinger for extraordinary performance of duty and exceptional achievement as chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from January 1973 to June 1974. In this citation, the secretary of defense said, "I particularly note that Tom Moorer has always put his country's interests before anything else, and it is this quality I recognize in presenting him the only oak leaf cluster ever given to the Defense Distinguished Service Medal." Adm. Moorer is survived by his wife, the former Carrie Ellen Foy, and their four children...Tom Frohne t@frohne.com..." [25FEB2004]

I just received the Bronze Star posthumously for him on April 3, 2009. The Navy has already reissued the rest of his medals to me. If any of you remember my dad please write back.

His hard work, determination and professionalism provided his family a safe and loving home where all were welcome. As a husband, he put aside petty things in exchange for love, understanding and forgiveness and is survived by his loving wife Leona (Lee) Mortensen, who held his hand till the end and never once left his side.

Got out in 1984 where I worked for Lockheed for seven great years until they made the decision to move to Georgia. Was in P-3 field sevice and the maintainability group working with the MRC cards. Lots of travel to Navy bases so I was able to stay in touch with all my Navy buds. When the P-7 program was cancelled and Lockheed was moving I got a job with a Vickers Company that was taken over by Eaton Aerospace. Stayed there 14 years until retiring in September 2004..."

MONROE, REAR ADMIRAL Jack Pendleton Retired http://www.usstarawavets.org/CV-40%20pages/monroe.bio.htm "...Jack Pendleton Monroe was born in Hopkinsville, Kentucky, on June 19, 1904, son of Jack P. and Florence Bowman Monroe. He attended Shaw High School in Cleveland, Ohio, before entering the U.S. Naval Academy from Ohio on August 2, 1923. As a Midshipman he was a member of the 150 pound crew and played class football. Graduated and commissioned Ensign on June 2, 1927, he subsequently progressed in rank to that of Rear Admiral, his date of rank July 1, 1956. After graduation from the Naval Academy in June 1927, he served for two years aboard the U.S.S. Tennessee, and in 1929 reported for flight training at the NAS Pensacola, Florida. Designated Naval Aviator in January 1930, he was assigned to Scouting Squadron 9-S, aviation unit of the U.S.S. Northampton. A year later he was transferred to Observation Squadron 3-B, attached to the U.S.S. Nevada. During a two-year period in 1932-34 he had shore duty at the NAS Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, where he commanded the Utility Unit of that station, and served in VP-4. From 1934 through 1937 he was attached to Bombing Squadron 3 based first on the U.S.S. Ranger, later on the U.S.S. Lexington. Returning to the NAS Pensacola, Florida, he served for one year as Planning Officer in the Assembly and Repair Department, and a second year as Aide to the Commandant. In the summer of 1939 he assumed command of the U.S.S. Gannet, and a year later was assigned to the Staff of CPW-2, based at NAS Pearl Harbor, Hawaii. In 1941 he joined the Staff of Commander Carrier Division One as Aide and Flag Lieutenant aboard the U.S.S. Saratoga. He was serving in that assignment when the United States entered World War II in December 1941. He received a Letter of Commendation with Ribbon from the Commander in Chief, Pacific Fleet, for "outstanding performance of duty in the line of his profession as Flag Lieutenant and Signal Officer on the Staff of the Air Task Group Commander in preparation for, during, and after the successful engagements with the enemy in the Coral Sea on May 7 and 8, 1942...". Monroe was ordered next to the U.S.S. Bogue and was aboard that carrier escort when she participated in escort and anti-submarine operations in the European-African-Middle Eastern Theater in early 1943. Upon his return to the United States in 1943 he was ordered to the Bureau of Aeronautics, Navy Department, Washington, D.C. He received a Letter of Commendation, with authority to wear the Bronze Star on his Commendation Ribbon, from the Secretary of the Navy, as follows: "As head of the Armament Branch of the Engineering Division of the Bureau of Aeronautics from October 1943 to December 1944, you performed duties of vital importance with extraordinary foresight and efficiency in developing advanced aircraft armament, and in effecting sound armament installations in all types of Naval Aircraft...". In January 1945 he assumed command of the U.S.S. Kadashan Bay (CVE-76). "For meritorious service as Commanding Officer of the U.S.S. Kadashan Bay, operating as a unit of the Carrier Transport Squadron, Pacific Fleet, from February 6 to September 2, 1945..." he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal. The citation states that he "successfully delivered large quantities of critically needed combat aircraft, aviation material and replacement pilots, ground and aircrewmen to bases in the forward area of the Pacificľand contributed to the success of our forces". Detached from the Kadashan Bay after the the Japanese surrender he reported as commanding officer of the NS Sangley Point, Philippines, where he remained throughout 1946. In March 1947, he was ordered to the staff of Commander Air Force, Pacific Fleet, as Assistant Chief of Staff for Operations and two years later was transferred to duty at the Naval Ordnance Test Station, Inyokern, California. He reported on 8 January 1951 to Commander Operational Development Force, Atlantic, and served as Chief of Staff and Aide until August 1952. On 8 August 1952 he assumed command of the U.S.S. Tarawa CV-40 and remained in command of that carrier until August 1953. He was in command during the ship's 1953 Mediterranean Cruise. He next commanded the NAS Pensacola, Florida, from September 1953 to June 1955. For the next year he was Chief, Naval Air Base Training, Pensacola, following which he trained as a helicopter pilot, earning his wings in June 1956. He then spent a year as Director of Operation 53 in the office of the Chief of Naval Operations, Navy Department. In July 1956 he was promoted to Rear Admiral. At that time he became Commander, Middle East Force, until August 1957. On October 26, 1957 he reported as Commander Naval Air Missile Test Center, NAS Point Mugu, California, and from July 1958 was assigned additional duty as Commander Pacific Missile Test Range, NAS Point Mugu, California; in December 1958 this additional duty became his primary assignment until September 1961.

On March 7, 1963 he reported as Commander Naval Forces, Philippines; Commander in Chief, Pacific Representative, Philippines; and from January 15, 1964 to January 1, 1965 had additional duty as Commander Naval Air Bases, Philippines.

"For exceptionally meritorious service...as Commander U.S. Naval Forces, Philippines, and Commander in Chief, Pacific Representative, Philippines, from March 1963 to June 1966..." he was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal. The citation further states in part: "Exercising outstanding leadership, sound judgment, and keen foresight in coordinating military requirements throughout the area of his command, Rear Admiral Monroe, through persuasive negotiation, effectively promoted intercountry relations and established and nurtured effective channels for liason where none previously existed, thereby furthering United States prestige and good will with foreign nations. "In addition to successfully meeting the monumental challenge of coordinating and providing logistic support to forces engaged in combat in Southeast Asia, he greatly facilitated increased communications capabilities by formulating and expediting communications improvements in shore stations under his command. As a result, these installations were advanced well ahead of original plans, thereby enabling timely direction of forces in sensitive politico-military operations...".

MONZON, CDR Vic Retired vmonzon@comcast.net "...Hi. I entered the VP Navy as an NFO via NESEP. I joined VP-47 in November 1978 and deployed to NAF Kadena, Okinawa, Japan the following month. This deployment included a detachment to NSF Diego Garcia. On returning to NAS Moffett Field, California, I was sent to Corry Station for training to assume squadron EWO responsibilities. Also while on the home cycle, I completed two 3-week NAS Adak, Alaska detachments. I qualified as TACCO and (a LTjg) Mission Commander prior to our January 1981 NAS Misawa, Japan deployment, which included two NAS Cubi Point, Philippines detachments. After successfully getting the VP-47 NFO's thru the CNAP NATOPS eval, I transferred to VP-31 Staff. I immediately enrolled in the USC Sytems Management master's program. During the RAG quailification process, I was reassigned to assume the VP-31 NFO NATOPS billet, which included IUT coordinator, and StanBoard chairman responsibilities beyond the usual instructor duties. I then completed my final 18 months as CNAP evaluator. In 1985, with a CARGRU staff unavailable in NAS Alameda, California, I volunteered for a 1 year tour as MC&E(OPS) with CPW-1 det NSF Diego Garcia. With detailers only offering CPWP staff options (4), I joined the staff as Tactics Officer, handling Tactical Development and Evaluation, and AIR Effectiveness Measurement program. This was one of my more successful tours, where I was influential in advancing Force readiness with PTA Attack Criteria, LASER threat guidelines, Acoustic Sensor enhancements, ALR-66 deficiency corrections, and MK-50 initial tactics. Heading to Big Red (VP-19) in 1989 for a 2nd tour, I caught their full NAS Misawa, Japan deployment. On return, I was able to participate in ICEX out of Greenland. With perfect timing, I received Outlaw Hunter training just before our 2nd NAS Misawa, Japan deployment, which coincided with Saddam's invasion of Kuwait. Hence, I took Outlaw Hunter to the Gulf and was there every month of Desert Shield and into Desert Storm. As luck would have it, during Desert Storm, we were notified of our impending disestablishment and rotated home. On promoting to CDR, I rotated to FASO as Training DH and led the design, development, and introduction of the Tactical Training Course. Upon retirement of the OINC in 1991, I relieved him as the final FASO det OINC. In 1994, I transitioned to the civilian world via the Semiconductor Industry. With the recent meltdown of the Asian financial world, I have moved on to the Telecommunications industry. I made a lot of friends during my 16 years at NAS Moffett Field, California, and I would truly enjoy the opportunity to reconnect with those with whom I have lost touch. A couple in particular are Don McLaughlin (East Coast) and Charley Bess (VP-47)..." [E-Mail Updated 28MAY2006 | E-Mail Updated 12JAN2001 | 07SEP98]

MOORER, ADMIRAL Thomas H. http://navsci.berkeley.edu/NIMITZ/pastspeaker-1990.html "...Thomas Hinman Moorer was born in Mount Willing, Alabama, February 9, 1912, son of the late Dr. R. R. Moorer and the late Mrs. (Hulda Hill Hinson) Moorer. He graduated from Cloverdale High School in Montgomery, Alabama, Valedictorian of the Class of 1927, and on June 10, 1929, entered the U. S. Naval Academy. As a midshipman he played football for three years. He graduated and was commissioned an ensign on June 1, 1933, and through subsequent promotions attained the rank of rear admiral on August 1, 1958; vice admiral, on October 5, 1962 and admiral, on June 26, 1964. After graduation in June 1933, he served six months on board the USS SALT LAKE CITY as a junior officer in the gunnery department. He assisted in fitting out the USS NEW ORLEANS at the Navy Yard, New York, and served in the cruiser's gunnery and engineering departments from her commissioning on February 15, 1934, until he detached in June 1935. During the next year, he was a student at the NAS Pensacola, Florida. After completing the flight training in July 1936, he was designated a Naval Aviator. In August 1936 he was assigned to Fighting Squadron ONE- B, based briefly on the USS Langley I (AV-3) and later on the USS LEXINGTON. He was transferred in July 1937 to Fighting Squadron SIX, based on the USS ENTERPRISE, and continued duty with that squadron until August 1939. He then joined VP-22, a unit of FAW-2, and later FAW-10, and was with that Squadron at Pearl Harbor, Territory of Hawaii, when the Japanese attacked the Fleet there on December 7, 1941. His squadron was sent to the Southwest Pacific and during the Dutch East Indies Campaign, he was shot down in a PBY on February 19, 1942, north of Darwin, Australia. He was rescued by a ship which was sunk by enemy action the same day. He was awarded the Purple Heart for wounds received February 19, 1942, and the Silver Star Medal for "extremely gallant and intrepid conduct as pilot of a Patrol Plane during and following an attack by enemy Japanese aircraft in the vicinity of Cape Diemen, February 19, 1942..." After his return to the United States in July 1942, he had temporary duty from August of that year to March of the next in the United Kingdom, as a mining observer for the Commander in Chief, U. S. Fleet. He then fitted out and assumed command of VB-132, operating in Cuba and Africa from its base at Key West, Florida, Boca Chica Air Base. Detached from that command, he served as gunnery and tactical officer on the staff of Commander Air Force, Atlantic, from March 1944 to July 1945. He was awarded the Legion of Merit: "For meritorious conduct ... as Force Gunnery and Tactical Officer on the Staff of Commander Air Force, Atlantic Fleet..." From August 1945 until May 1946, he was assigned to the Strategic Bombing Survey-Japan of the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations, engaged in the interrogation of Japanese officials. For two years thereafter, he served as executive officer of the Naval Aviation Ordnance Test Station, NAS Chincoteague, Virginia. He next had duty afloat as operations officer of the USS MIDWAY (July 1948-July 1950). Reporting in August 1950 to Inyokern, California, he served for a year as experimental officer of the Naval Ordnance Test Station. During the year following, he was a student at the Naval War College, Newport, Rhode Island, and in August 1953, again reported for duty on the staff of Commander Air Force, Atlantic Fleet. In May 1955 he was ordered to the Navy Department to serve as aide to the Assistant Secretary of the Navy (Air) and in July 1956 was detached to sea duty as commanding officer aboard USS Salisbury Sound (AV-13). On July 26, 1957 his selection for the rank of Rear Admiral was approved by the President and in October of the same year, he reported as Special Assistant, Strategic Plans Division, Office of the Chief of Naval Operations, Navy Department. From January 1, 1958 until July 1959, he was Assistant Chief of Naval Operations (War Gaming Matters), after which he commanded Carrier Division SIX. He returned to the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations in November 1960 and served as Director of the Long Range Objectives Group until October 1962 when he assumed command of the SEVENTH Fleet. For his service in this assignment he was awarded the Distinguished Service Medal. In June 1964 he became Commander in Chief of the Pacific Fleet. Admiral Moorer assumed command of NATO's Allied Command, Atlantic, the U. S. Unified Atlantic Command, and the U. S. Atlantic Fleet on April 30, 1965. On June 17, 1967, he was awarded a Gold Star in lieu of a second Distinguished Service Medal: "For exceptionally meritorious service as Commander in Chief Atlantic, Commander in Chief U. S. Atlantic Fleet, Commander in Chief Western Atlantic Area, and Supreme Allied Commander Atlantic..." On June 3, 1967, he was named by President Johnson to succeed Admiral David L. McDonald, USN, as Chief of Naval Operations, Navy Department. Admiral Moorer became the eighteenth Chief of Naval Operations on August 1, 1967. On January 13, 1969, he was awarded a Gold Star in lieu of a Third Award of the Distinguished Service Medal "For exceptionally meritorious service as Chief of Naval Operations from August 1967 to January 1969." He was reappointed Chief of Naval Operations by President Nixon on June 12, 1969. He was then nominated by President Nixon on April 14, 1970, to serve as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. The Senate confirmed the appointment on June 17, 1970. On July 1, 1970, he was awarded a Gold Star in lieu of a Fourth Award of the Distinguished Service Medal "for exceptionally meritorious service to the Government of the United States in a duty of great responsibility as the Chief of Naval Operations from August 1967 to July 1970." The citation reflects his contributions to the modernization of the Navy's ships and aircraft, to the United State's future status as a world maritime power, to the security of the United States, and in support of United States foreign power and national strategy. On July 2, 1970, Admiral Moorer assumed the office of Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. He was reappointed as Chairman of the J CS by President Nixon on June 20, 1972. This second appointment was confirmed by the Senate on June 30, 1972. The Defense Distinguished Service Medal was presented by Secretary of Defense Melvin Laird on January 10, 1973 for "extraordinary meritorious and distinguished service to the Government of the United States in a position of unique responsibility as Chairman, Joint Chiefs of Staff from July 1970 through January 1973." The accompanying citation notes, "Admiral Moorer has carried the heavy responsibilities of the country's senior military officer with great distinction during a crucial period in the history of the United States." He has been relied upon extensively by the President, the National Security Council, and the Secretary of Defense for advice and counsel, which "has invariably been characterized by thoroughness, accuracy and wisdom." Also cited are his contributions in the areas of negotiations related to the Strategic Arms Limitations, Mutual and Balanced Force Reductions, Incidents at Sea, and the effectiveness of the Joint Chiefs of Staff representing the Armed Forces of the U. S. in the national security decision making process. On July 2, 1974, Admiral Moorer retired from active duty. At his retirement ceremony, a second Department of Defense Distinguished Service Medal was presented by Secretary of Defense James R. Schlesinger for extraordinary performance of duty and exceptional achievement as Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff from January 1973 to June 1974. In this citation the Secretary of Defense said, "I particularly note that Tom Moorer has always put his country's interests before anything else, and it is this quality I recognize in presenting him the only oak leaf cluster ever given to the Defense Distinguished Service Medal." Admiral Thomas H. Moorer, the former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, has joined the Board of Directors of NewsMax.com..." [20JUN2003]

Wasn't in the squadron more than a week and LT Sikes ask me if I wanted to be a radio operator. Had a great time flying. Introduced me to photography and my life long passion. Many of you have seen my photos and did not even know it. Have seen the world twice at no expense. First with the Navy and second with the newspapers that I've worked for over the years. Yes I do remember the 4th of July in NAF Naha, Okinawa, Japan. How about the CO of NAF Naha, Okinawa, Japan coming down in his car. Getting out and telling us to stop and then both 17 and 22 barracks turning their bottle rockets towards his car and firing at him. We never saw him or the MP's again. QUESTION: Does anyone remember the time i got mugged on the way to the em club on may 1, 1972? Have had neck problem for 30 years and am fighting the system for service contected disability. Went to VP-31 and was only there for a few months. Quit flying after they tried to kill me again with a stupid pilot mistake. They thought they where sending me to a terrible duty station at MCAS Yuma, AZ. The best duty that I ever had. Went fishing almost ever day with the Master Sargent that ran the flight line. 7 great years and never really worked as an AT that I was trained for. Became a single father and left Navy. Wished I could have stayed but glad I did not. Have a great daughter and now have a granddaughter and a dumb son-in-law that is the Track Head Coach for a college in High Point, NC. Would like to hear from all and the following if they are out there: Crew 10 on NAF Naha, Okinawa, Japan Deployment, ADJC Gerster, AW3 Wiley, AWAN Poteet, AW3 Unabia and AO2 Wheeler and AT3 Larry Terhune.

I really miss those NSF Diego Garcia deployments with three dollar bottles of Captain Morgans. It's no wonder I got everyones pay right! I left Virginia and was stationed with a SEABEE Battalion in Gulfport, MS for six years. Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 74 was my home away from home. I say this because during this tour I went on several deployments. Deployments were six months out and seven months in homeport. Then it changed to six out nine months in. It will be changing again now that Naval Mobile Construction Battalion 11 is the newly commissioned battalion. Deployments will be six out and twelve in. I was with one of the East Coast battalions. Anyway, I went to dets in Puerto Rico, Vieagues Island, 3 trips to Iraq (into Ar Ramadi, Ar Ar, Syria and Fallujah), Kuwait, Pakistan, Okinawa, Guam, Spain and a couple more places in Japan. I have alot of respect for the Seabee and Marine Corps communities especially being with them under fire in Iraq. I wouldn't be here if it wasn't for both. I would never trade any time I had with the seabees and appreciate all I learned from them, but I will never forget the P-3 community because it was the best duty I ever had. Now, unfortunately, the DK and PN ratings have merged to form the PS rating. Most DK's DO NOT like this but the Navy is definately downsizing and saving money. I am now stationed at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland for my last tour. Plan on starting another bachelor's degree before retiring from the Navy so I will have two degrees to choose or rather fall back on once I am out.

His next assignment was with the RINA at the GM aircraft plant in Trenton, NJ. He married Miss Roberta Neary during this assignment (1944). His next duty was that of a ground person attached to VPB-138 which had its type of aircraft changed in midstream. This unit eventually went west to Hawaii and Okinawa (after the latter was neutralized). At the time of the Japanese surrender, Ed was with the squadron on Okinawa. He departed Okinawa in September, 1945, to be demobilized to inactive duty on reporting to the Third Naval District. En route, he was promoted to Lt. Comdr., USNR by one of the last ALNAV's. After terminal leave expired, Ed was employed by the Long Lines Department of AT&T as a plant engineer. After five years in several assignments, he transferred to Bell Laboratories (NJ) to work on military equipment design. After BTL dropped most of military development, Ed was assigned to groups whose objective was machine-processing daily business information into computer data banks.
