Mike, wonder why we could not of had a set of vans at Cubi also.  Been a few since we talked but those vans were quite the undertaking to build.  The original drawings needed someone your size just to get an ADC hooked up.

If anyone has any photos of the IMF vans we had in Rota, I would love to see them.

If anyone is trying to find a "long lost buddy" send me an email to rvahroster@gmail.com and I'll look and see if we have anything on them. I can't release their info, but I will email them (if they have a current email address on record) and let them know you're looking for them. Tell me in the email what you're willing for me to give your old shipmate for contact info (email. phone, snailmail address). Then it's up to them to try and contact you back (If they don't respond or hide even better there's nothing I can do).

I just checked a Saratoga yearbook from 1970 [after I left the squadron] and there was a PT - 3 Cooney in RVAH -9.

Terry-I looked him up. The guy on the left is Schornack. We called him Puppy Dog. Not sure of the first name.

Terry- Barry Freer (far right) became an LDO. GW "Boo Boo" Brown (ADJ-2) center. Far left is "Puppy Dog" forget the last name but I trained him as a Plane Captain.

I found this picture of some of the H-9 gang at Pompei. I know some of the faces, but not all. Claude Stephens, Mike Hunt, Steven Bokros, and a couple others are familar, but not sure on the names.

I am looking for a PT2 or PT3 named Cooney that was in RVAH 9 during the 1967 - 1970 time frame.
