Comments: I just had a book published entitled 'NAVAL AVIATION
IN THE KOREAN WAR Currently, I am gathering info on
all the Navy squadrons that flew the F9F in that war.
I would like to hear from anyone that was affiliated
with VF-72 during that period.

Comments: As the "historian" for the USS BENNINGTON CV/CVA/CVS-20, I just wanted to inform those looking for individuals from this squadron (VF-72) know that one individual known as Robert "Bobby" Quinn is a member of our association. He would be interested in communicating with anyone from that group while they were aboard the CVA-20. (again, time frame from 9/16/1953 - 2/21/1954).......

Please forward emails to me as Bob has no computer. Thank you in advance.......

I need them for a drawing for a friend, his dad was in VF-73 on the Randolph during the 57/58 med cruise. Would trade my first grand child (no strings attached) for that cruise book.
