UTGOFF, CAPTAIN Vadym V…My father, CAPTAIN Vadym V. Utgoff, was Commanding
Officer of VP-34 during World War II from May 12, 1944
to January 1945 and Commanding Officer of VP-40 and
stationed at NAS Iwakuni, Japan from June 1, 1951
to December 15, 1951. I’m trying to find out if anyone who served with him is
still alive or how I could locate relatives. Dad, passed away on July 18, 2002
of Parkinson’s disease and complications from a stroke. Dad retired in 1963 from
active duty in the Navy after 24 years of service. He became a civilian
professor of aerospace engineering at the U.S. Naval Academy in 1964. He retired
from his second career in 1983 and was named Professor Emeritus in 1985. Dad
wrote a book, Pilot Error (a naval aviator’s career — WWII Black Cats to Korean War PBYs to Annapolis Professor), that mentions some of the
men he served with. They might be interested in a copy of his book but I don’t
know how to try and track them down. Any help you could give me would be most
appreciated. Thank you. Marina Utgoff Braswell marina.braswell@gmail.com…”
