Comments: I was a "squadron baby", born at Oak Harbor in 1954.

My father, Robert McKercher, was assigned to VP-29 in 1955, and was part of Crew #10. Known crew members: LtCdr Lipelt, Lt (J.G.) Sayer, Lt (J.G.) Evans, AT1 A D Butler, ATAN W E Neczypoiatan (sp?), AD2 Fugit, AD2 Koontz, AO3 C A Sering.

I have a picture of him on the flight line, Fallen, Nevada, 1955. If anyone can explain the comment "What a ball!!" I'd be interested. :)

My father passe away 6 May 2011, and is interred at the Mt Tahoma National Cemetery.

I have a few artifacts, pictures, etc. but am looking for pictures of his plane or crew. Also, any stories would be greatly appreciated.

Comments: My father's name is Charles Leo Nagle. He would have gone by Charlie,
Chuck, or Doc. He was a Chief in 1954 at Whidby Island and went to
the Marshall Islands for Operation Castle. My father died in 1975 from
multiple meyeloma. He was only 49 years old.
A few days ago I asked my mom for the family photos for a paper in
which I have to write about a personal photo. I picked one of my dad
and the back of says Feb 22, 1954 Ebeje Marshall Islands. This is what
has started me on this search and now I am going to try to retrieve my
fathers records.
I would appreciate any information that anyone has. I also would love
to talk to someone who knew my dad.
My email is debbieterhune@mac.com
thanks,
Debbie
