I was @ Willow Grove from May 81 to May 83, attached to NAS Bermuda, I just want to know if it still an active base. I was living in NJ at the time, and as an airdale I had to do my reserve duty there.

Ofcourse I remember you! I retired in 1997 after 21 years of service. I got married right before the Persain Gulf war and it didn't work out she hated the Navy, but join the Air Force and just made E-6. I was in San Diego for three years until I got downsized. I am her in Indy helping my mother. I am planning on moving back to Va. Bch. I hate it here. V/R Angelo

I've been racking my brains trying to remember you, but I guess the years that have passed affected my memories. Do you have any pics to share? Be sure to encourage others that you contact to join the VA-85 command here at As I mentioned, I would like to get a reunion together if there's enough interested people. -Al

ya my bro lives around suisun city east of the bay. ya i reelisted in nov 81 after the 81 cruise, i went to vp31 moffet field south of the bay area to a P3 squadron, but i didnt finish my 2nd hitch, everybody did drugs on the flight line in va85 and bad attitudes rubbed off on me, its not that i didnt like being a PC cause i did. but the attiude got in the way, so they let me go, i still have an honorable discharge, since i didnt screw up or get written up. i wished i had tried harder tho and spent 20-30 yrs in the navy, so its my fault and i could kick myself in the butt, navy was the best thing that happened to me, been downhill ever since. let me know if ya get ahold of anybody, talbot is very busy and hard to get ahold of.
