Bring pictures, cruise books and any items of interest for the get together of those who remember this great outfit after 50 years. Rember the Fire on the flight deck of the Champ? This Week Magazine published several pictures of the fire and the flight operations. Life Magazine published some pictures of the Champ in the war. We have the original magazine pictures for you to see. I have a 20 minute video of the VF 22 people leaving JAX, at sea, in various world ports to be seen at this reunion. I personally took the 8mm movies and had them converted to VHS a couple of years ago. We look forward to seeing you in JAX

Comments: I'm a writer on the Baltimore Sun. I'm interested in doing a piece on Ensign Edwin N. Broyles, who was lost over Korea on Jul 26 1953, the day before the truce began. He was assigned to VF 22 aboard the U.S.S. Champlain. I would appreciate anything anyone knows about Ensign Broyles, especially from people who might have served with him. But I am interested in everything I can learn about him.
Thanks,
Carl Schoettler

Comments: I'm just an interested person who likes to read history, particularly the Naval/Marine Corp air war over Korea. About 10 years ago I built a 1/72nd scale model of a McDonell F2H-2 Banshee, with VF-22 markings. I'm curious if anyone would or could share any background or history on VF-22. It's virtually impossible to find anything, other than passing references in various books. For other interested readers, check out www.history.navy.mil, for links to several .PDF files on WWII, Korea, Vietnam and present day activities.
