Comments: I found this site after searching for information about the squadron patch on my father's flight jacket.

As best I can tell, my father LCDR Eugene E Thies, served in the early 1950s aboard the USS Bataan.

My father passed away on 26 December 1983 and is burried at Arlington National.

I would greatly appreciate learning all I can about VS-25.

Thanks to all who have contributed to the memory of VS-25.

Sincerely,
Greg Thies
