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:
