Comments:

I am writing about my father, Captain David C.Carmichael, who was a MATS squadron commander out of McGuire AFB 1960-63. We lived on base and I caght heck from the Air force kid being from a Navy family. That aside, my father commanded one of the largest -if not the largest air squadrons in naval history and i just want to know if any of you men remember him. He was strict but well liked. He has passed on and two of his chiefs (who followed him in his commands since 1948) were at his funeral. I recently heard while he was at McGuire AFB he ate a couple of days a week in the enlisted mens mess and even had his own chair which the men reserved only for him.

I anyone has recollections - good and not so good - please post them. Thanks, Jim Carmichael and the rest of the Carmichael family.

My Father Charles "Ed" Haines who has passed away was a Naval Aviator from 1957-1968. He was assigned to VR-7 based at NAS Moffett Field from 1957 (or 58) until 1962. I am hoping to learn more about the squadron and if anyone has any memories of my Father. I served in the Naval reserve from 1985-1996 and spent 3 years in VP-91 and was also based at Moffett in hangar 3.

Thank you'

He was not that I know of

Comments:

William (Pete) Ralph Evans was my grand uncle. I recently received his military service record from the National Archives. The records list him transferring from U.S. Naval Air Missile Test Center, Point Magu, CA on 31 Aug 1947 to join Air Transport Squadron SEVEN. Her served as an Air Transport Officer, Space Control, Guam M.I. from Oct. 1947-Dec 1947, when he then became the OIC, VR-7, NATS Detachment Okinawa from Dec 1947-Feb 1948. His fitness reports have him as the OIC, VR-6 Detachment Okinawa from Dec 1947-Apr 1949, after which he transferred to NAS San Diego with Air Transportation Squadron 32 as a Ferry Pilot (Follow). Should your organization have any information/pictures to share, I would appreciate being contacted.

I recently received a trunk from my uncle who has passed away. The trunk had My uncle's name , T.W. Hukriede and VR-5 stenciled on it in several places. My uncle served in the Navy from 1941 to 1949. I thought he had participated in WWII on a ship, but apparently was in this obscure part of the military, NATS. There most likely isn't any one out there who knew him as he was 93 years old when he passed away. Please E-mail me any info you have on VR-5 or Theodore Hukriede.

My father, Miles E. Twaddell,was a U.S. Naval Aviator serving in VR-6. I grew up seeing the squadron patch, one among several,on his flight jacket.
On several occasions, my mother, brother, sisters and I greeted my father on his arrival at some Naval Air Station as he, the aircraft commander,
landed and taxied the aircraft to its parking area. Excellent aviator and fascinating aircraft. My best wishes to everyone on this website!

In the winter of 1961 my assigned C-118 #647 went off radar after take-off out of Gander, Newfoundland. A muffled explosion was thought to have been heard by Gander. Half our crew was lost and we at Norfolk were without a plane. The Canadian and U.S.A militaries and all ships at sea found nothing of the event. Later, we teamed with another group and were assigned to #650. In 1961 I was reassigned to Sangley Point, Philippines to the Avionics division. Nearly a year later, I received a late call at the barracks that #650 was on the ground at Clark AFB. The caller invited me to come up to see him and the plane. I arranged for a rec-car and driver and drove the 50 miles to Clark. It was a pleasure to see #650 and my old crew mate. Thank you Freddie Guth for the call. You New York guys are alright! It was good to hug my old plane.
