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.
