I went to a Emergency Shore Based arresting Gear School there in May/Jun, 1966. The AB Schools were just getting started as they were being moved from Philly.

Went to "A" school in Nov. of '65 to Jan '66. Anybody know of anyone in Class 545. Winter of 65-66 was so bad, we got a bus from the terminal in Lakewood and it got stuck 2 miles from the gate. We walked through knee deep snow all the way back to the barracks on a Sunday night. Anyone in class 545 PLEASE respond!!!

Attended PR 'A' school in late '62 thru April '63. I still can't get over the size of those blimp hangars!

Hank, I just reread the comments here and was pleasantly surprised to read yours of Oct 2012. My Dad, Jack Scherck, was also blimp aircrew in ZW-1. Earlier than when you were there, I was also born at Lakehurst in 1955. I saw on your page that you volunteer on the U.S.S. Yorktown and I now live in Moncks Corner, I would like to get together if that is possible.

I went to PR "A" school from 8/81-10/81. I was the class leader as an "AA" because I had 6 months in the fleet. I had a lot of fun there and met some really great guys. Our class was only 6 people, but we made it work.

I was in Lakehurst PR A school from April 1981 to about July 1981. Had a blast! Made some friends and found out what a small elite group we are.
