Welcome aboard Chief McGrew. Looks like you got to Meridian about 4 years ahead of me and retired about 10 years before me. I really liked Meridian got my first taste of flying there. Miss getting to play with all the big boy toys. Bet you didn't make very many parachute bags during your career did ya.

I was there from 1-1-1964 to 6-24-1967. I spent most of my time on Shore Patrol.

Though it was a crazy shore duty for me.  I first had orders to vt-19 and I checked in there and was promptly pcs'd to vt-19 as they were in the process of splitting.  Was there for a short while and was sent TAD to 7 as they needed a AT1.  After a couple of years I was pcs'd to 7.  I am probably the only person to ever to be in all 3 squadrons in the same shore duty tour.  lol

I was there from 71-75, then went to Diego Garcia to set up the aimd for P3's.  Loved Meridian though.
