I have been practicing law in a small town in west Michigan since 1970. I owe much to the Navy for making a bnoy into a man.

NICHOLAS, AE2 Rubbo Shipmate Pix nrubbo@netjets.com "...Started at VR-51 in NAS Glenview, Illinois. In 1989. The Flaming Hookers. Nothing like this ever was. You guys really took care of me there. I miss you all. I landed at NAF Detroit, Michigan VR-62 about 1993. It was great to be back home. My father served there and some of you remembered me from the old hanger when I used to visit on drill weekends. My father is doing well and still wrenching on aircraft for ATA in Indy. Around 1995 I joined the VP community at VP-64 in NAS Willow Grove, Pennsylvania. I really enjoyed my stay there and met some really nice people. I played basketball at all these stations and rode motorcycles to work often. If you want to drop me an E-mail please do I look forward to hearing from Shipmates soon..." [07DEC2006]

NICHOLS, AD2 Diana mainedln@msn.com "...I was an Air Traffic Controller at NAS Barbers Point, Hawaii from July 1965 to December 1967. Probably spoke to every pilot/mechanic in the VP squadrons during that time. One exciting time for me was when we had a lone P-3 bouncing the pattern at night. He did about 3 T&G and always had his landing lights on. His next approach was without the lights and I couldn't see him so I gave a go-around. I guess he was pretty close to landing, but he did the go-around. As they were climbing out, the pilot asked why the late go-around? Well it certainly was good training for the pilot. If anyone can remember that incident, let me know. I always wondered who that pilot was. I would hop on as many base aircraft as I could to fly around the islands with the pilots who were staying current. I did meet a VR21 pilot in 1973 when I was living in Maine and I worked with a VR21 mech at FEDEX in LAX 1989-1996. Naval aviation is a small world and I would like to hear from anyone stationed at NAS Barbers Point, Hawaii who might have known me or was station there during 1965-1968. Our group of WAVES have stayed in contact and have had a couple of Reunions. I was also in VP-65 USNAR, NAS Point Mugu, California 1975-1979 as an AD2. I always wanted to me a a/c mech but was denied that rate in 1965. I used the GI bill to get my A&P cert and after VP-65 worked as a mechanic at Flying Tigers at LAX, 1978-1989. I am currently a A/C MX Project Administrator for FedEx at IND. I hope to hear from someone from those "old" Navy days. I also have a homepage folks can visit. http://msnhomepages.talkcity.com/resortrd/mainedln/index.html..." [11NOV2001]

NICHOLS, Jim nicktv@sierratel.com "...VP-31 1964-1966 at NAS Moffett Field, California. I was on the line crew at Hanger #2, lots of great times and memories while station in the Navy. I was station in NS Subic Bay, Philippines from 1962- 1964 special services on Grande Island....I never really got a taste of what the Navy was like until station at NAS Moffett Field, California and then I decovered that the Navy was not for me. I'll bet you pilots of VP-31 remember me? I was the lineman who backed you up into the stalls many times and you hated to apply the brakes in fear of falling back on the tail!! Lived dangerious in those days. Heck I was only 19 and 20 years old, I basically grew up in the Navy but would do it all again, and make some changes like not party so much and study more. Most likely I would have also stayed the 20 years! Later swabbies, maybe we shall meet in heaven one day at the Lords supper? I know I'll be there! In His Service..." [18APR2001]

NICHOLS, Phil philjam@enter.net "...Would be thrilled to hear from anyone serving (VXN-8) Project Jenny in Vietnam, Saigon, and FASU/NSA DaNang, Republic of Vietnam 68-71. My first tour was February 1968 in FASU/NSA DaNang, Republic of Vietnam. I remember China beach, softball, flying north, rockets, bunkers, marines, USO show, acey-ducey, and the weight room in back of the barracks. We were on the upper floor. Does anyone remember who was below? Later I got to Saigon. Remember the Blue Sky Bar, hundred P alley, Snoopy the dog, our Vietnamese driver (what was his name) and horshoes, hotel duty, the maid strike? Before we went to the hotel we had huts at Ton Son Nhut. I remember a dinner at some Chinese restaurant in ChoLon where an we gave an officer a bra which he put on.

NICHOLS, AE2 Phil PHILNICHOLS1@JUNO.COM "...I served with VP-19 from June 1962 thru June 1965 and was a member of crew 6 (PE6) on P3 BUNO: 150628. During my four year hitch I was fortunate to fly in P5M, P2V-5, P2V-7 and P3A's. Pretty good stuff for a 20 year old from Abilene, Texas. I've enjoyed civilian life and have been fortunate in business and activities, but those four years in the Navy will always hold fond memories of good men, great aircraft and new lands. Nothing can take the place of a SP2H on a low pass down the side of a ship or marking rocket runs from from the plexiglass nose. I'll never forget my first ride in a P3, high performance take-off and low pass at the field. What a trip!..." [E-Mail Updated 15MAR2003 | 22JUN98]
