My dad, Keith P. Collard, was a Hurricane Hunter in Jax in 1964-5ish. He could have been one in Puerto Rico two years prior also. We lived there but I was young and don't remember. He is gone and all his Navy Memorabilia was lost to an ex. ( I am going to try and get it back). Does anyone remember him or have photos? I have 3 sons and want them to know their grandpa...

I was a PN3 in VW-4 in 61-64 at Roosevelt Roads, Puerto Rico. It was a great tour of duty. Beautiful weather. Great liberty. Squadron personnel were the best. Parsons PN1 and Wallace PN1 were the guys I tried to follow. Wallace died a couple of years ago. I am 78 yrs old now and still kicking. Have a great reunion - I probably wouldn't know anyone.

To SR Schultz. My dad Walt Gillette was there at the same time as you. He was ADR1. He served under Blalock. I hung out with his daughter until the officer/enlisted thing got in the way. She and I were at a change of command or something and were bored we were only 10. However, Dad passed away in 1997. I have his Hurricane Hunter yearbook here with me.

My husband Jim Schmidt was serving as pilot with VW4 out of NAS Jax when we met in 1959. He loved flying, loved the Navy and those with whom he served. We were married in 1960, he flew in the reserves (anti-sub)out of Willow Grove with his brother, Jack Schmidt until our move to the midwest prohibited the monthly commute. He never lost interest in flying and spent many a good hour on his flight simulator programs and introducing the grandkids to the joy and challenge of the air, as well as a member of Fox Flying Club in DuPage County, IL and had the privilege of participating in a program geared to helping disadvantaged kids learn life skills with the hook being the chance to fly upon graduation. Jim passed away June 17 this year - is very much missed by his family of five daughters and myself - but know he is smiling down and thanking God for the opportunities he had thanks to the Navy.

I served the U.S Navy as an Aerographers Mate from 1959 to 1962 and was stationed with VW-4 during that time. It was a fantastic experience, one I have cherished my entire life.

My grandfather was stationed with VW-4 from 1957-1961 as an enlisted man as part of the aircrew at Jacksonville NAS. His name was Richard Veit was anyone stationed with him during that time? I am trying to put together a shadow box. My grandfather died last January and I would love to know more of what he did.

I was stationed in Roosevelt Roads, PR from 1962 to 1965. Flew under the command of Russell Blalack. I would like to correspond with any of the guys that were in the same time I was. I'm 72 years old. Any of us left out there?
