Comments: I have created a website about VS-23 in 1950-51 based upon my father's photography as an aviator. He took hundreds of photos of personnel, many ships from destroyers, carriers, battleships, cruisers, and many more. All of these images are being scanned and preserved from slides to digital. I plan on a book in the next year or two about his experience. Jack Wink, Joe Storey, and John Gould have been some great help on identifying personnel, places, etc. Anyone else who was on VS-23 or any of the ships, feel free to email me at .

I have some photos with names from NAS Pensacola and NALF Cabaniss: Harry L. Merton "Limpy", H.L. Sullivan "Sulli", Roald N. Eids "Starry", Ed H. Cherry, Don L. Bush, Jacob L.H. Wink "Jake" (my dad's best friend), and John D. Richardson. If anyone knows the where abouts of these men or their families, please let me know.

Comments: I reported to VS-23 at North Island NAS in December 1950 and went to shore duty in june 1954. While in VS-23 I was a aircrewman and flew in TBM-3E's in various positions such as radar, sonabouy and ECM.I was assigned to the metal shop and eventually made AM-1 before leaving the navy in 1960 and going back to school. I made two cruises to japan with the squadron aboard the Bairiko and another ship I don't recall. We also stopped on Guam where I had to drill with the island defense battalion while there; also did my escape and evasion and survival training there. Like to hear from any ship mates from those days.
