Memorial Picture "...YORK, Thomas H...Discovering this website was really quite moving for me when I saw my father's name listed in the VP-3 personnel roster. Sadly, LCDR Thomas H. York passed away in Sept 1959 when his TV-2 plunged into San Diego Bay shortly after takeoff from NAS North Island, San Diego, California. He was a CDR at that time. During his VP-3 tenure, I was apparently made the squadron mascot shortly after my adoption in 1951. Of course I still have the engraved silver cup. Appropriately, I have just ordered the VP Navy Mug to commemorate this experience. It would be an honor to hear from anyone who knew my dad, as well as anecdotes from those times at NAS Jacksonville, Florida. I suppose that I would also like to know if I creditably performed my duties as squadron mascot...Timothy R. York yorktr@aol.com..." [15JUN99]

YOUNG, AZC Arthur Retired seadog381@comcast.net "...Reported to NAS Moffett Field, California in late April 1955, right out of Boot camp in San Diego. San Jose was a very exciting place for a poor, 16 year old black kid, from the red clay hill of Cobb county Georgia. I feel in love with the Bay area at first sight. And what luck, my next duty station was aboard the USS Bon Homme Richards (CVA 31) in V2 division, home ported at NAS Alameda, California (from Feb 1957 to July 1958). My flight station aboard was on the LSO platform. A perfect place to learn Carrier operations, but I had a very close call when the first A3D aircraft crashed aboard and aircraft parts scattered all over the LSO area. The ship deployed to the Far east from August 1957 to FEB 1958 In those days a Carrier did six months on deployment & JUST SIX months home. My next duty station was at NAS Alameda, California - man what luck. I was there from August 1958 to August 1961. Next PCS was VP-6 at NAS Barbers Point, Hawaii with a six month deployment to MCAS Iwakuni, Japan. We were called home early to take part in the last open air nuclear test operations out of Johnston Island. I was on Johnston the night they made that famous, first test shot in space. If anyone ever tell you that Nuclear warfare can be handle, you tell that person to visit my nightmares - nightmares I have to this day. After the bomb went off above at around 200 miles up, we were told we could look up. The sky from horizon to horizon was cover with fire that changed colors every 30 seconds or so. I don't remember the order of the colors - Red - Green, Blue, purple - just the final color was yellow which slowly faded. One of the older guys standing near me said: Old my God, this should never happen again. A few months later, the world went through the Cuban Missile crises. You can imagine the bad dreams I had during that period. My next PCS was to VAW-11 at NAS North Island, San Diego, California. My Detachment (Lima) deployed aboard the USS Hancock (CVA19). Two close calls on the flight deck convince me to try get the hell out of harm's way. During this deployment the date November 22 (23 local Asian time) 1962 occurred while we were off on Vietnam. It happen after 0100 hours, while most of us were sleeping. That date changed my life. I got serious with my career. I was a 2nd class when that happen and would become a Chief by 1968. My next PCS was at NAS Cubi Point, Philippines as a AZ2. I would spent one year at NAS Cubi Point, Philippines and then be transferred to NS Sangley Point, Philippines, across the bay from Manila - the PCS gods were always smiling on me. My next PCS (Feb 1967) was at NAS Floyd Bennett Field, New York, in Brooklyn New York, training reservers. My wife loved New York City, but I was bored in a training people. After two years, I asked to return to duty in WESTPAC. VQ-3 at NAS Agana, Guam came up. A great command. After two year I was back at NAS Cubi Point, Philippines. This time as a AZC. 12 to 15 hours work days - 6 day work week were the norm this time around. My next tour was at VF-124 at NAS Miramar, California. When I got to the squadron, Dec 1972) they had just transferred their last F8 aircraft and were awaiting the new F-14 Aircraft. We got the first one in Feb 1973. I had a good crew and was my own Division officer - no problems, except my twenty years was coming up and I needed to buy a house while on active duty. I called my detailer to agree to stay on active duty for another tour if I could be transferred to the Bay area. He said okay and I got order to VP-48 at (lets hear the drum roll) NAS Moffett Field, California. Life is NOT FAIR. Hey this is where I came in at. The Squadron was due for a WESTPAC deployment in Sept 1974 to the Misawa Air Force base on the extreme tip of northern Honshu Island. We would be the first Naval Air squadron to go there. We were told it would start to snow (like clock work) on 15 Oct. I don't recall if it started to snow on that date, but it was close enough and it started snow in a way a Georgia boy should never have to endure. Right before the deployment begin, BUPERS started a major reduction in force and I made the cut. In mid-Jan 1976 I packed my bags and headed back to NAS Moffett Field, California from retirement. But I was not finish with the Navy. Many months later, I would sign up with the Military Sealift Command Pacific (MSCPAC) and become a REAL Sailor. I would sail on eight ships before getting my dream Job - A shipboard Inspector / Instructor in logistic & Desktop Computers. In this job I would travel the world, inspecting ships and training crew members and best of all staying in 4 star hotel with great room serve. Since no one in my department had ever been aboard a ship, I wrote up my own trip tickets deciding where, when and how to go. The Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, All over Japan, Hong Kong, England, Italy, Israel, Australia , Kenya, Canada, Up & down the West , Gulf and East coasts of America. The only place I never made it to was Brazel & New Zealand. Since our ships never went to those places, it was hard slipping a trip through our travel department - God knows I tried a few times. And they paid me good money to have me do this. Not bad for a poor country kid from Georgia, whos main abition in the early 1950s was to make it up north to the midwest and get a job in the Auto industry..." [17AUG2007]

YOUNG, REAR ADMIRAL Howard Leyland (Deceased) http://www.usstarawavets.org/CV-40%20pages/young.bio.htm "...Howard Leyland Young was born in Brooklyn, New York, on November 23, 1901, the son of Howard and Minerva Catherine (Bolling) Young. He attended St. Albans School, Washington, D.C., prior to his appointment to the U.S. Naval Academy, Annapolis, Maryland, from the First District of Utah in 1919. As a Midshipman he participated in baseball. Graduated and commissioned Ensign on June 7, 1923, he subsequently progressed in rank, attaining that of Captain to date from May 1, 1943. On June 30, 1953, he was transferred to the Retired List of the U.S. Navy and was advanced to the rank of Rear Admiral on the basis of combat awards. Following graduation from the Naval Academy in 1923, he joined the U.S.S. Florida, and in June 1924 was detached for brief instruction at the Naval Torpedo Station, Newport, Rhode Island. In December of that year he reported aboard the U.S.S. Sturtevant, and after completing flight training at the NAS Pensacola, Florida, was designated Naval Aviator April 20, 1926. He was assigned in August to Observation Squadron Two, based on the USS Langley I (AV-3), and in June 1928 transferred to Fighting Squadron Two. He served at the NAS Pensacola, Florida, between August 1929 and June 1931, after which he had lighter-than-air training at the NAS Lakehurst, New Jersey. Qualifying as Naval Aviator (LTA) on September 28, 1932, he was assigned to the heavier-than-air unit attached to Airship Akron. Following the loss of the Akron off Barnegat Light in April 1933, he transferred to the Airship Macon for duty with her heavier-than-air unit. In August 1934 he joined the aviation unit of the U.S.S. Tuscaloosa, and from June 1935 until June 1936 served with Scouting Squadron Twelve on board that cruiser. For the next year he served with Bombing Squadron Two based on the U.S.S. Saratoga, and in June 1937 became Officer in Charge of the Experimental Divison, Operations Department, at the NAS Norfolk, Virginia. There he conducted rough water tests and accelerated tests of experimental and new production planes. In June 1939 he assumed command of Fighting Squadron Six based on the U.S.S. Enterprise, and in April 1941 became Commanding Officer of Air Group Six, attached to that aircraft carrier. At the time of the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, December 7, 1941, planes from the Enterprise, which was returning to Hawaii from Wake Island, were the only carrier based aircraft to take part in the Pearl Harbor action, arriving during the middle of the first Japanese attack. Air Group Six, under his command, made the first attack on enemy held territory in February 1942, during the raids on the Marshall and Gilbert Islands, and in the latter part of that month participated in the raids on Marcus and Wake Islands. He was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for heroic conduct in aerial battle, as Commander of a carrier air group, when, during the hours of darkness on the morning of February 1, 1942, in enemy waters, he successfully led the scouting and bombing squadrons one hundred and seventy-five miles over enemy controlled waters to their objectives, which all planes reached and attacked on schedule, surprising and inflicting great damage on the enemy. Again after successfully returning his squadrons to the carrier, he led another flight of bombers against a fully alerted enemy stronghold and this attack, which was made in the face of heavy anti-aircraft fire, caused great destruction to enemy installations" He also received a Letter of Commendation with authorization to wear the Commendation Ribbon and Combat "V" from the Commander in Chief, U.S. Pacific Fleet, and is entitled to the Ribbon for, and a facsimile of, the Presidential Unit Citation awarded the U.S.S. Enterprise. Returning to duty ashore in April 1942, he was assigned to the Advanced Carrier Training Group, Pacific Fleet, commanding that group from May to October 1942. He then became Commanding Officer of the newly-established Naval Air Station, Vero Beach, Florida, where he remained until July 1943. In August he assumed command of the USS Tangier (AV-8), and in January 1944 reported for fitting out duty in the U.S.S. Ommaney Bay at the Kaiser Shipbuilding Company, Vancouver, Washington. He assumed command of that escort aircraft carrier upon her commissioning February 2, 1944. For outstanding services while commanding that vessel he was awarded the Bronze Star Medal with Combat "V", and the Navy Cross. The citations follow, in part: Bronze Star Medal: "For meritorious achievement as Commanding Officer of the U.S.S. Ommaney Bay prior to and during operations against enemy Japanese forces on the Palau Islands in September and October 1944. Tireless and thorough in his detailed preparation for hazardous invasion operations, Captain Young welded his command into a strong fighting unit ready and competent to provide necessary air support for our assault forces despite previous lack of experience in combat. Under his skilled and forceful leadership, the officers, men and air personnel of the Ommaney Bay were responsible for severe and costly damage inflicted upon the enemy in facilities, installations and material destroyed, carrying out their missions with splendid teamwork despite difficult and unfavorable operating conditions..." Navy Cross: "For extraordinary heroism...in action against major ships of the Japanese Fleet in the Battle off Samar, October 25, 1944...Captain Young conducted his command gallantly and with courageous initiative, inspiring his officers and men and the Ommaney Bay air personnel throughout the critical and fiercely fought Battle for Leyte Gulf against a powerful force of Japanese battleships, cruisers and destroyers. His superb seamanship and indomitable fighting spirit in the face of overwhelming odds were important factors in turning potential defeat into a decisive victory over the Central Japanese Force..." During the invasion of Lingayen Gulf in the Philippine Islands, the Ommaney Bay was so badly damaged by Japanese bombers that she was later sunk by our own forces. Captain Young later related that "We took hits on the flight deck from a Japanese bomber, and fires broke out. The destroyers in the area couldn't help us much because of the fires. We started to get our (wounded) men off on these cots that were kept afloat by life jackets. There were several explosions, but the men and officers continued without a let up. Our casualties were less than 100". Other ships in the task force picked up the Ommaney Bay crewmen from the water and took them aboard. "Some of our men who were not wounded helped man guns aboard other ships," Young said. "That meant that our wounded were aboard ships taking part in the bombardments, which made it right tough for some of them." After the loss of the Ommaney Bay, Young was assigned in February 1945 to Fleet Air, West Coast, and during April and May 1945 had duty in the Office of the Chief of Naval Operations, Navy Department, Washington, D.C. Following service as Chief of Staff and Aide to Commander Fleet Air, Seattle, Washington, he reported in August 1946 as Commander FAW-4. He was Commanding Officer of the NAS Whidbey Island, Washington, from December 1946 until September 1947, when he joined the staff of Commander Carrier Division Six as Chief of Staff and Aide. Captain Young became Commanding Officer of the U.S.S. Tarawa on February 28, 1948, and was in command during the ship's 1948-49 World Cruise. In April 1949 he reported as Navy Liaison Officer with the Air Defense Command, U.S. Air Force, Mitchell Field, Long Island, New York. In September 1949 he transferred, in a similar capacity, to the Continental Air Command, Mitchell Field, continuing to serve there until July 1950, when he joined the staff of Commander Naval Forces, Far East. Returning to the United States in January 1951, he was in command of the NAS New Orleans, Louisiana, until September 1952, after which he had duty in connection with General Courts Martial in the Twelfth Naval District, with headquarters in San Francisco, California. He was serving there when ordered relieved of all active duty, pending his retirement, effective June 30, 1953. Rear Admiral Young died on April 4, 1954, in Chula Vista, California..." [22JUL2003]

YOUNG, James rugsucker1@alltel.net "...I was a Aviation Ordinanceman with VP-56 around the later part of 1968 and early 1969. I was trained to be a P2 crewman at NAS Jacksonville, Florida and was assigned to meet VP-56 as they arrived from NAS Guantanamo Bay, Cuba to their new base at NAS Patuxent River, Maryland. As a newly trained ordinanceman crewman I was looking forward to my duty in the P2, but to my dismay the squadron was given the brand new P-3c upon their arrival from NAS Guantanamo Bay, Cuba. We started training all over again in the P-3 and for me it was never the same. The P2 had that WWII mistique to it and was my love. After aircrewman trainingg was finished for the P-3 I had only a few months left in the Navy. They said I either had to reenlist or go to Operation Springboard and get a one month early out.
