Comments: I just want to know if those two soldiers who landed in a helicopter in my town of Guiuan E. Samar who made us kids at the Kindergarten class all line up and gave us the best tasting crackers that I can ever remember, are still alive and who they were. It must have been around 1971-72. Our school was just between the Courthouse and office of the Municipality of Guiuan. I just want to thank them and tell them that I thought they were angels from heaven, how dashing they were and that I said when I grow up, I will marry an American, which I eventually did. I was only 5 years old then but I cannot forget those two soldiers and I just want to thank them for those crackers and for the dream. :)

Do you have any ideas on how to find any shipmates who were in VJ1?  VJ1
was Weather Squadron One (Typhoon Hunting) based on Guam, during the
Korean war.

We did most of the weather tracking for Korea. 

VJ1 was changed into VW3 at the end of the Korean War.  

I was a "Plank Owner" in the Squadron and would like to track down 
anyone who is still alive.
