Here is a picture of Jim, Bruce and Chuck from our last reunion in Nashville in 2018.
Ron Meehan passed away May 8, 2019 at home. He had cancer and all the chemo etc. finally caught up with him.

The end of an era again and VP40 to the rescue

I am very sorry to announce that David Fulcher passed away on Jan 13, 2019 at home.
He passed away from a heart attack. Dave had been suffering for a long time due to his cancer of the tongue.
He had survived a few surgeries for it, but I think it finally got him.
I am going to visit Iris and try to help her. I will report more when I return home.
Dave was one of the GOOD ones.
Dave was in VP40 from 1962-1965 as an AX2. He retired from the Navy as a LTCDR.
If I get his OBIT I will post it here.
Well we made it through 2018.
I wish you all a Happy and Healthy New Year 2019.
I will be adding more 2018 reunion pictures here soon, and also firming up our 2020 reunion and posting it here also.
Your 2019 dues are now overdue. !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The annual dues are $20 and due at reunion time. IT is easier for us both if you pay for 2 years $40 usually at reunion time.
There are a few that have paid for 2019, MOST of you have not paid 2019 and for that matter 2018, and 2017..
If you do not know if you are delinquent email me and I will give your your balance. In the past there are about 50 people that pay their dues and the other 250 DO NOT pay.
If you want this organization to continue, it is important for ALL to pay their dues. It would also be nice for you to contribute pictures, stories, or at least
communicate with each other and or me so I can provide content to this website. I realize that we are getting older but that is more reason to keep in touch with each other.
enough rant for today
Happy New Years everyone.
Maybe 2 more upload batches and they will ALL be up here on the web site. COMMENTS are welcome
If ANYONE has pictures from the reunion and want to contribute, please send them to me and I will add them to the group
