Cdr. Daum was my first CO. worked for Manning A Hooker in the AME shop."73" until decommissioning, then of to RVAH-7
Cdr Richard A Daum passed away from Pancreatic Cancer late last year. Cdr Daum served in several Viggie units. I remember him from RVAH-11. I flew from the US to Manila aboard a Victory Airlines MAC flight that took us 48 hours due to engine trouble 2 times. I was a young Airman when I met him. I did not know that he would be in the same unit I was in. He later served as XO and CO in RVAH-11. I had the dubious honor of facing him at an XO's Mast for a little indiscretion on my part. He was a good man and fair. Now, all my CO's are gone..."Murph" Wright, Henner Lenhardt, and RA Daum....Fair Winds and Following Seas to all..
Does anyone have hidden away a copy of the Heavy 11 disestablishment program handout from the decommissioning ceremony? We could use a copy for inclusion with the package Al Plunkett is going to provide to the Naval Air Museum.
email us at :email@example.com if you can provide one.
I remember that fateful night that we lost these two dedicated officers. It was a sad, sobering incident.
Robin Hartford passed on this photo of the Memorial Service Handout from the Saratoga (CVA-60) for Cdr Hogan and LCdr Mulholland
Below are (LtoR): Joe Lolley, Tommy Swain (back), Randy Lennon, and John Patton, RVAH-11, circa 1972:

anyone that was in RVAH-11 , from 1967 to 1970 get in touch , I would like to hear from you. Also if I may know you.
I was in RVAH-11 from 68 to 70 and again from 72 to 75 in the AE Shop.
Wayne, you remember John Hartt from the AME shop? He was there during the 67 to 70 timeframe. I have remained friends with him over the years and usually get together a couple of times a year.
