Comments: I am proud to be a friend of Marvin Henderson, (The XO of VA-702), all the way back to 1947 when I was a student at SWU in Georgetown, Tx.

He inspired me to become a NAVCAD in 1948. After the Korean War we became neighbors in Dallas.

There, I met many other pilot veterans of the re-called VA-702 Squadron.

("Where did they find such men?")

MARVIN IS NOW THE WORLD TENNIS CHAMPION IN HIS AGE GROUP---KEEP ON GOING, MY HEROIC FRIEND

Keywords: My aircraft flown at NAS DALLAS (1952-66) FG-1D, FH-1, F9F-7 and 6 FJ-3, R5D (C-54), R6D (C-118)

Comments: I am trying to gather information about the air combat operations of USN squadrons in Korea. In case of VA-702 I am especially interested in any information on encounters with MiG’s by various CVG-101/Kearsarge squadrons in early Oct 1952. Any info, first hand or not, would be helpful.

Comments: Looking for any members of Reserve Squadron VA-702
that was called to active duty July, 1950. There is going to be 2 reunions, one with VA-145 in Charleston, S.C., Sept. 6, 2000. The next reunion will be with the Aircraft Carrier Boxer Veterans Association to be held in New Braunsfeld, TX in April 200l. VA-702 members had our first get-together with the Boxer Veterans Assn. this past March. We had approximately 15 shipmates at this meeting. We hope to increase that if we can just find our shipmates. Please contact me at the above addresses.
