  • I was station at Whiting Fld. from 1959 to 1961.  I was there when it was changed to the VT.  I still remember picking up paper along the highway for 6 months with X division.

  • I was stationed at NAAS Whiting Fld. in 1958-59. It was a training facility for NAVCAD's and the primary aircraft was the T-28. Initially I worked in the SIO office as a journalist striker. Then I was sent TAD to Great Lakes for JO School. I returned to Whiting and continued as a journalist for a time, then transferred to South Fld. and worked in the logs and jackets office.

    I'm wondering if anyone remembers the singing group The Blue Notes. They were all part of my group of friends and I sure would like to reconnect, if any of them are still with us.

  • 1979-1981 Galley 

  • I'm looking for anyone who was stationed or who may have knew some of the sailors who worked for base security in 1980....  or in the personnel/disbursing office in 1980.

     

    Please help.

I checked into NAS Whiting after NAS Lakehurst A school, in January 71. I was there for three months and sent to OLF Middleton 65 miles north on Whiting. Evergreen, Alabama: USN you've got to be kidding.One crash made the rescue all souls on board safe. Other than that lots of touch a goes, and wheels watch.

I got stationed at VT-3 from june 1980 -june 1982. eventually got into the schedules and ran the office for about 1 year as a BT2. A far cry from my usual job but never the less it was my first shore tour and was pretty good. A few people I still remember because they really stood out. one was BTC jerry owens PN2 sue morris and ynsn molly driscoll I would have married that woman she was great. met abh2 steve lyon there and were still friends after all these years. molly was from cherry hill…
