For those who served in the RVAH Community, their families, and friends!
I would like to extend an invitation to all former Whale Squadron personnel to the 50th (and last) reunion of NAS Sanford to be held at the FRA Branch 147 home at 3040 W. State Road 46.
As previously stated (long time ago) I checked I n to VAH-7 December 13, 1960 at 1500 as an AKAN
Made 3rd and 2nd with the squadron before transferring to Supply Dept. at NA in January 1964
Many at the base were in the transition to A3J-1/A5A.
I read, with interest, all the stories concerning the "Whales" and have a few of my own!
Anyone that was attached to VAH-11 Det 8 may remember a close friend of mine, AK2 Jim Pihlgard Sadly, he passed at NAS Pensacola.
If at all possible, PLEASE TRY TO ATTEND? There is still a small contingent of B/N's that still come every year. One in particular is CDR Ralph "Rotten) Feeback..
