      AOC Hamm – I served under you in VP40 (75-77) at Moffett. I am trying to see if I’m able to attend the reunion in San Diego. If so I hope to see you, and I hope all is well with you and your family.

      Sincerely,
      AO2 Wright

    I received this message from Dave Fulcher, can anyone answer his question
    Message:
    I was just wondering if anyone knew what happened to AE2 Rich Heffron (61-64) Crew-10. He got orders to FASOTRAGRUPAC, NAS North Island when he left
    VP-40. That’s when I lost track of him. Rich and I were High School buddies. When I got orders to NS Sangley Pt. AT Shop, Rich was in VP-40. He talked to his PPC, LCDR Wisenbaker, who got me transferred to the squadron. Not only that, I was put in Crew-10 with Rich and the following day we departed to Hong Kong for 5ive days R&R. What a deal!
