Status of my father\'s Sqn mates.
Dad was then Cpt. Charles W. \"A-Train or Chuck\" Dryden of 6147th TCS at K-3. CO Maj Merrill Carlton, Ops Officer Cpt. John Planinac, tent mates Ed Haws and Lt John Thompson. Dad\'s tour with the 6147th was Sept 1950 to April 1951.

Looking to reach out to any of his surviving Sqn mates.

Sadly Dad died 24 June 2008 at 87 YO.

Any assistance would be appreciated.
Respectfully,

Edwin W. "Duffy" LaVigne
My Dad, Duffy LaVigne, passed away on 13 February 2013 after a short illness. It was unexpected, even though he was 92. He had been happy and involved in life right up until the end. He still told stories of his Mosquito times to his friends.

Ralph (Curly) Iverson
One of my best friends, Ralph \"Curly\" Iverson was from Pipestone MN and a former T-6 Mosquito pilot In Korea. We always kidded Curly about his Purple Heart as he was shot in the rump. I knew Curly when were both instructors at Bryan AFB TX 1953. Curly was killed on a night flight in a T-28 with student . Crashed about two miles from the field, cause unkown.

Mosquitos Shoulder Patch
My dad, who passed away in 1998, possessed a shoulder patch that just said Mosquitos. He flew in Korea, was trained in the T-6, flew C-47's and C-119's. Does that "plain" patch exist?
Reply:
Supply ended several years ago. Standard patch was a Mosquito with mike pointing target to jets, blue background, "Mosquito" yellow letters.

information request
I just discovered your website and wanted to know if anyone had any information on my Grandfather, James Womack. Excerpt from his obituary: After WWII he became a flight instructor at Luke AFB in Arizona for a short time, but later enrolled at Baylor College in 1948, majoring in education. However, he was called back to active duty at the outbreak of the Korean conflict, and was unable to return. He was first stationed at Langley in Virginia as a personnel officer, but felt that a desk job was not his forte. Womack then volunteered for combat duty, and soon found himself flying aerial reconnaissance missions with the 19th infantry regiment as a forward air controller. These perilous missions, gave him a spot in the famous “mosquito squadron”, and earned him The Distinguished Flying Cross. Thanks for your help! -Paige Joyce
