I am looking for a VRC-50 pilot stationed at NAS Cubi Point 1974-1976-I believe he was an Lieutenant(O-3). At that time I don\'t think he was fully qualified in the C-2. I can\'t for the life of me remember his name. He was short, slim, blond-haired and had a fair complexion. He liked to play aviation fighter games(two \"pilots\" drew a type a/c like a Fokker and a Spad and was constricted by flight characteristics of the a/c and played by tossing dice). He was artistic-he drew penciled aircraft combat scenes for me. He was single and lived in the BOQ across the passageway from me.

If you can locate him, tell him I had a good friend Nerissa who was liked by everyone who knew her(to help him remember me).

If you locate him, please have him contact me or if he is unable to do so let me know what happened in his life after I left NAS Cubi Point.

Best.

Vietnam Veterans,

I am working to establish that the blue water navy could have been exposed to Agent Orange during the Vietnam War. The VA does not make this easy, and this project will require a lot of testimonial e-mails and letters.

One possible exposure route is that Agent Orange was carried to the carriers by CODs from DaNang. I would appreciate any personal experience that supports that (1) C-1As were based at DaNang, (2) that they carried supplies, parts, and personnel from DaNang to carriers (by name and approximate date if possible), and (3) that the aircraft, aircrew, passengers, and cargo involved in these flights were not sheltered at DaNang prior to the flights to the carriers and therefore could possibly have been contaminated by Agent Orange.

Thanks,
Jim Gill

Hey guys!
Just checking in. ATN3 VRC50 from May 67 thru May 69. Arrived just as first C2\'s were coming aboard. Saw transition from Quonsets to hanger at Cubi, adoption of T39, phase out of R5D or was it an R6?. Either way, it was a ***** to polish! Anyway, best to all.

Greetings I too was TAD out of VS-29 North Island to VRC-50 from November 72 till March of 73 in support of the C1 aircraft in Det Danang Vietnam. I too am looking for some buddy letters and pictures of our stay at Det Danang Vietnam. My name is Henry Anderson but everybody called me Andy I was an ADR 3 at the time and returned to the Philippines in February of 73. Those that were there I know will remember the great times we had at the little bar in the back of the barracks, the great barbecues with the stakes we got off The ships and the attractive local girl we has as a bartender with one eye gone right and the other looking left we never knew who she was looking at. With a 20 pound bungee cord that made the door going into the sleeping quarters slam and bounce about five times. Or the many overnight trips to Ubon and Bangkok Thailand for a stop at B's jurors were some free super coke before going to town. I too received the Vietnam service medal and the combat action ribbon on my DD 214 but apparently that's not evidence enough with the VA. Refresh my memory and I will be happy to assist others with their battles with the VA.

I was attached to VC5 Det Cubi from June 1969, to the start of 1070. I was there when we took over all of the COD opertions when the C2's were downed for wing cracks. We flew out of Danang. We should have recieved a medal. I was there when the skipper, LCDR Holingsworh, screwed his S2C into Subic bay. he killed three other pilots, while killing himself. At the time of the crash he was opperating the aircraft in violation of about ever single NATOPS regulation. I alos recall Lt. Craig Kristofferson, (brother of the singer). taking over and pulling the squadron back together. All in All, it was the best flying, best troops, and the best friends.

Mark, you have done a really great job with this site. It\'s been a minute since I\'ve visited last. I got into VRC-50 at North Island in 1972 after crewing in E-1B\'s for 6 yrs. Squadron moved to Cubi Pt. in 1972, I got there in September & had a slight altercation with our \"AT\" shop lead, AT1 Davis. I remember Captain Adkins , remarking \"So you like to fight\" I thought it was rhetorical till I was on the flight to Da Nang. I repaired avionics in a trailer & was back in Cubi by Jan.1973. became a Ct-39 loadmaster & headed the CT-39 shop. Left in 1975...US3-A Ldmaster in 1979. I retired in 1980 but am having problems trying to prove I was in Da Nang for that 3 month period. Any help/ documents would really help...Wishing all my VRC-50 fellows \"greetings\"

Hello fellow Foo Dogs. I was in VRC-50 1973 through 1976. Worked on
the line crew, airframes, and C1A Crew. Trained on C1's and C2's my first
carrier landing was a crash landing on the Coral Sea on a C2. Crew
consisted of: Pilot Lt. Disque, Co-Pilot LtJg File, Plane Captain PO1 Sam
Weaver, Loadmaster AN Bob Bissel, and I was a trainee. We collapsed
a gear on landing and I still swear it was my smoothest carrier landing. I
ended up primarily a C1 Aircrewman and made two Indian Ocea n cruises.
One on the Constellation and one on the Kitty Hawk. Loved my time in the PI and looking for old friends.

Does anyone remember from C130 crew circa 84 -85 when one of our Herc went mech. down in Thailand? I think it was a o2 line in cockpit that was leaking/unable to pressurize. Acft Cmdr called the squadron Duty Officer requesting part & tool to be delivered by someone via commercial flt from Manilla to Bangkok. I happened to be pulling a bull**** hangar watch at the time and suggested to the young O.O.D that I could go and had my passport. Within an hour I was being driven by a fillipino base driver to Manilla Int. in my shorts & flip flops. Was instructed to book the first avail flt to Bangkok using Sqn Orders as credit card. Well...the first avail flt turned out to be on Air France -FIRST CLASS!!! Here I was drinking cocktails 1st class in shorts-tshirt & flips. Got to Bangkok where a pre-arranged Thai driver with a FULLY STOCKED micro van limmo took me to Pattaya Beach. Arrived slightly drunk with the part & tool needed to be installed, but it could'nt be installed till next day by a RTAF mechanic. After 2 days, of heavy drinking and a little of some Thai green, the C130 was fixed and we rtn to Cubi. The Kicker of this story is that I was on restriction from the get go. That's why I was pulling the bull**** hangar watch at 0200 hrs. The O.O.D. did'nt know I was on restriction and I failed to remind him when I suggested that I could take the part & tool. Needless to say, Capt Gauthier was a little ****** when I returned with crew. However, he did not add any further restriction and actually found it hard not to smile when chewing my ass. Best couple day's I spent while in the Navy...on restriction!!!!

Hey fellow "Foodog's". Served with VRC-50 from 84 - 87. Capt Gauthier was C.O. then. Lived off base and shared a house with Roger Bynum & Sam Dowell. Did a couple of detatchments to Diego. I have forgotten most names & dates...due to way to many San Miguel - Red Horse beer.
