I had an opportunity to visit VP-10 while they were deployed to NAS Sigonella, Sicily this past summer. They were the first VP squadron to destroy ground targets since the Vietnam conflict.

Shortly thereafter our new home became NAS Brunswick, Maine. I have many fine memories of all the places we have been and people I served with and have managed to stay in touch with a few. Sadly our ranks have thinned. Sorry that I missed the VP-10 Reunion (didnt know about it in time).

I served with NAS Patuxent River, Maryland in 1982, then moved to NAS Brunswick, Maine and stayed for almost 16 years. Served VP-44 with the "GOOCH" and to many others to name. Some real good times were had back in those days. Nothing like flying out of NAF Lajes, Azores, Portugal in high winds, or pulling back a Gin and Coz at Bennies. My favorite stop was the tattoo shop in NS Rota, Spain. I left VP-44 just prior to its disestablishment and went down the hall in Hanger 5 to VP-10. What can I say, AOCS Joe Oswald made me a deal I couldn't refuse. What a tour that was. Made Chief, and worked Maint Control. I learned the finer arts of Maint Control from Jerry Lutz. Thanks Bud. Abe Villerial and so many others in the CPO mess, man those were some good times. After a few deployments, it was time for a little shore Duty, so I took orders to CPW-5. Had a pretty good time there also and worked with some great folks, way to many to list. After CPW-5, I moved to the West Coast to VP-1. If I only knew how much fun the deployments were on the West side, I would have went out there allot sooner. I worked for Master Chief Pat Blewitt, what a great deployment to Dodge. Doha/NSA Bahrain/Oman - so many places and so many good people. I have to say, after I retired last year, I sure have missed it.

NOVETZKE, LCDR Richard C. N999N@aol.com "...From Pensacola it was Hutchinson Ks for multiengine and the PB4Y-2 thense to first squadron duty with VP-6 NAS Barbers Point, Hawaii. Certain events made that a memorable tour. Sally gave birth to two beautiful daughters now both married and parents to two each of our four grand children. Dick did his obligatory tour at the nav table of the P2V5-F while at the same time moonlighting with the local FASRON flying fleet airplanes FASRON was too lazy to pickle. It was great sport and included the F6F, F4U, AD-5, F9F-5,6, Panther and Courger, F2H-4 Banshee and some other minor sports and little known religions that I have since forgotton. . . .I think the SNJ was in there somewhere. Coming off a P2V training flight on the nav table and going to the FASRON line and "checking out" whatever looked like fun to fly was truely a wonderful experience and I will forever be thankful to the Navy and a series of FASRON operations personnel who believed me every time they would asked me if I was checked out in the airplane. Yea Sure. I have fond memories of walking slowly down the stairs from the Ops Office with the flight manual in my hand looking for the chapter titled "How to Start the Airplane". Serveral times I had to have a Plane Captain make the start but from there it was just plain fun. While in VP-6 I skipped the right seat and got a job as PPC with a crew of my own, I was so impressed with myself I figured this was the life for me. Accordingly, I applied for Regular Navy, but with the stipulation that I be sent back to college to complete work toward a degree. The Navy agreed but said it would be 1965 before that would happen so I took my discharge after four years and put myself in school at the University of Minnesota where I finally did complete my undergrad work. That was 1956 and I continued to want to be around airplanes so when the Navy called and offered me augmentation to Regular Navy from civilian life I opted to become a lifer and put the uniform back on and joined my second squadron, VP-10 in NAS Brunswick, Maine. Two signal events occured during my VP-10 tour which incidently only lasted about 18 months. The first event occured because I was the Fleet Air Wings "personal" pilot and as such spent time in Washington while he was on business. At BUPERS I learned that I was doomed to be on sea duty non stop for the next 8 years. Ugg I said to myself. When I got back to Brunswick, several days Iater, I had a nite launch over the Atlantic looking for a oil drum or something that looked like a Russian sub. It was 3AM, 100 feet off the water, flying the same Bureau Number P2V that I had soloed in Kodiak Alaska 5 years earlier. . . .and I decided then and there that I had to leave the Navy. It took me 9 months to get out so back to civilian life I went as a military sales rep for Collins Radio, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. For the next 2 years I flew with the Naval Reserve out of NAS Minneapolis (VP-814). One day I got a call from Aero Commander Inc. in Olkahoma with a offer to come to work for them. . . .which I did. I checked out of VP-814, packed my family in the station wagon and headed for Oklahoma City to find a house then on to NAS Dallas, Texas to check into another VP. Never got there. While on the road, the Berlin crisis hit and I heard on the car radio VP-814 had been called to duty. I figured if I was gonna take thier money I better be ready to do the duty and since I didn't want to go back in the Navy, I never did check into NAS Dallas, Texas and that was the end of my flying of Navy airplanes. I missed it but to me family came first and the two simply were not compatable. At Aero Commander Inc I was called National Accounts Sales Manager which meant I got lots of flying in on various demo tours of new models of the Commander. I got into experimental and production flight test and worked with the turboprop version of the Commander as well as the Jet Commander. After 7 years there, I got a phone call one day from Collins asking me to come back to work for them. . . . I accepted and back to Cedar Rapids we went. Two years into my new job as Director of Sales for Collins, I got fired from the job in what I recall to be one of the classiest political confrontations one could ask out of the corporate world. It was great sport as well as great theatre. Two days later, I was "recalled" and went to work with Arthur Collins at the "think tank" in Dallas. Since I am not all that bright, sitting around thinking all day was not my cup of tea but the gods of corporate life smiled on me and a head hunter connected me with McGraw-Edison and suddenly I was in the station wagon again, this time headed for Ft. Lauderdale to head the Instrument Division. Ft. Lauderale is no place to raise children. Cedar Rapids Iowa is. A call to a banker friend of mine in Cedar Rapids pleading with him to find me a distressed business I could buy (cuz I didn't have any money) led me to the purchase of a company called Midwest Nameplate Co. I formed a corp to acquire the assets and U.S. Nameplate Co. was born. (http://www.usnameplate.com). That was 1970. We have been here ever since. As I grew old the company became more prosperous and on balance I could say life has been good. During the interim, we added two more children. . . .both boys. . .one is here working with me in the company and the other is in SLC in the movie business as a camera sorta person. Wife Sally when not raising kids was the consumate volunteer and had her nose in just about anything that had to do with making kids happier than they were. Meantime she brushed off her political disappointment at Goldwaters failure and ran the Iowa Republican Party for several year as Chairman (person). In 1989 George Bush tapped her for a Ambassador post and she took up residence in Malta for the next four years. I was on the commute from Malta to CID during that time and racked up a ton of Frequent Flyer miles with TWA. All in all it was a grand experience and we were looking forward to Sally's next posting in Austria when Clinton upset the applecart. So now were are Cedar Rapids and Naples Florida citizens. I am in the process of turning my company over to my kids and hoping and praying I can keep my mouth shut and hands off and let them see what they can do with it. I still fly airplanes. I currently have a Cheyenne for serious travel but up until last year had a N2S-4 Stearman for fun and games. It was a beautiful airplane. . .in Navy colors of course..."

What memories from NAS Brunswick, Maine, State Hotel, Ernies, and all the other places we VPers hung out. I flew for all the time I was there on a couple of different crews. I loved the old P2V5F, then to O&R flight test, NAS Alameda, California, flying test flights on P2s , A3 and P-33s. Then to Naval Air Development Center Warminster PA (SECRET PROJECT POTLID) out of Howard AFB Panama where we flew the OP2E and did the work up project for VO-67 which flew sensor missions out of THAILAND over the Ho Chi Minh trail. VO-67 had three of Vp Tens birds that many of from 10 flew on. Two of which were shot down. Got out of the Navy but couldn't hack the slow mode of civilian life and came back in. Since I couldn't get back to VP I volunteered for Vietnam and was sent to Helicopter Attack (Light) Squadron 3 where I flew 1634 combat missions as a Door Gunner hanging outside a UH1B at tree top level shooting the bad guys. I was shot down twice and wounded twice. Did three 1 year tours. What a heck of a place for a VP Sailor. I went to VAQ-130 finally got back in the VP comunity. Served with VP-50 then to NAS Miramar where I retired. Would like to hear from old Shipmates..." Website: http://www.seawolf.org/ [URL Added 06JUL2001 | 04JAN2001]

Memorial Picture "...SCARBOROUGH, CAPT Wm. E. "Bill"...(VC-5, VP-10, VP-14, VP-72 and VPB-144)...Golden Eagle Emeritus CAPT William E. Scarborough, USN (Ret). Dear Golden Eagles, It is my sad duty to report that CAPT Bill Scarborough, USN (Ret) made his Last Take-off on 11 February 2013 at the Fleet Landing Health Center in Atlantic Beach, FL. He was 96. CAPT Scarborough is survived by his loving wife of 71 years, Sarah K. Scarborough, sons William E. Scarborough, Jr and Michael Scarborough, daughter Kathryn Scarborough Noyes, five grandchildren and two great-grandchildren. A full honors ceremony accompanied his interment at the Elmwood Cemetery in Columbia, SC on 15 February 2013. CAPT Scarborough enlisted in the United States Navy upon graduating from Columbia High School (SC) in 1935. After boot camp he served aboard the USS Erie and the USS Yorktown until 1938 when he was selected for flight training at Pensacola. He was a Third Class Petty Officer at the time and received his wings in 1939. After flight training he was assigned to VP-14 at NAS Norfolk, Virginia and flew PBY Catalina’s on North Atlantic patrols during which time his squadron took part in the search for the German Battleship Bismarck. Immediately following the bombing of Pearl Harbor, CAPT Scarborough’s squadron was sent to the Pacific theater to operate from seaplane bases in Noumea and Espirito Santo, where they took part in the Battle of the Coral Sea, the fight for Guadalcanal, and the Battle of Midway. He later served as Operations Officer of VPB-144 in the island-hopping campaign through the Central Pacific, and it was during this assignment that he received his commission to Lt (jg) in 1944. In the 1950’s, CAPT Scarborough was honored to be one of the few aviators selected to be a member of VC-5, the first Navy nuclear attack squadron. From 1952-1953 he served as Head of Safety Literature at the Naval Aviation Safety Activity (later the Naval Safety Center) and developed a report distributed to Fleet and Shore Stations entitled Weekly Aviation Safety Bulletin based on aircraft accident reports received by dispatch. The bulletin summarized those reports including recommended corrective actions, and in 1955 the bulletin was renamed Approach Magazine. CAPT Scarborough, whose decorations included the Distinguished Flying Cross, was the first enlisted pilot (NAP) to attain the rank of Captain, and during his career he was privileged to command VB 144 and VP 10. CAPT Scarborough retired from the Navy in 1964, but continued his service in the aviation industry as a flight safety engineer for Grumman Aerospace, most notably as a consulting pilot to the NASA astronauts in the Lunar Module program. He was a respected Naval Aviation historian and author, particularly well-known for his “In-Action” and “Walk-Around” books for Squadron Signal, as well as being a willing consultant to many other authors. We honor CAPT Scarborough’s dedicated and lifelong service to Naval Aviation and the Nation, and are further saddened by the loss of yet another member of the Greatest Generation. He will be missed.
