My dad was with VF-73 at Quonset Point in the early 50s. I was sort of the squadron mascot then.(Got put into the jet intakes to keep me out of trouble). I remember when they transitioned from F4Us to jets. I also served some time at Quonset during the Vietnam era. Does anyone remember my dad, Bill Rhodes? Would be happy to correspond. email: rhodes310@cox.net. Have a photo of the VF-73 gang taken early 50s. Regards, Bill Rhodes

Hello Gerald Humphrey of Pennsylvania. You wrote asking if I was any relation to a Lorraine Amaral of Providence, R.I. I am sorry that I am not any relation to her. Sorry I took so damn long in writing this. I just happen to come acrooss this message. I apologize for this. As you can see from my home town, I am not that far from the old duty station. Weird. If I can be of any assistance to you, please don't hesitate to write. Respectfully, Manny

I was attached to Utility Squadron Two (VU-2)at Quonset PT from 1951-1954 as a AM striker. We flew targets for ships and aircraft to practice firing upon. We had JD-1, TBM, F6F, F8F aircraft. I have some good memories of Quonset and VU-2. I have some editions of the Quonset News publications from that era. If the museum wants them, contact me and I will send them to you. Haven't been to RI or Quonset for 50 years so I can't comment on the museum.

Was stationed at NAS Quonset Point Jan 1956 through May 1958. Worked Control Tower all watches. Am surprised that there are no P2V's on display or S2F's. Squadrons of them there when there. Anyone remember the Friday Night Fish Frys at the Howard Johnson's? Enjoyed tour of duty. Have not seen museum so will withhold comment about it.
