    Fugari, great picture. Where did you find this? I have a copy of "The Chronicle of VC-84" cruise book and this picture is not in it. Do you have anymore pictures of VC-84? Would love to see them.

    Weston Scott is kneeling in front of Sedaker. The other two look to be Robert Hooks standing and Melvin Simpson kneeling. Hooks and Simpson is hard for me to indentify because my picture of those two in my cruise book are fuzzy. But that appears to be the original 4 of Fighter Division Two. One of the pilots from VC-84 explain to me a year or so ago that each divsion had 4 pilots at the start. Then later they added 2 extra pilots to each division which made it 6 FM-2 pilots to each division. Fighter Division Two picked up John Stroppel and J.D. Hubbeling Jr sometime later in the cruise.

    Weston Scott got shot down and killed March 27, 1945 in support of the Okinawa campaign. Sedaker, Scott, Hooks and Hubbeling were chasing a Val when Scott is believed to been hit by friendly AA from other vessels. Scott is believed to have gotten out of his FM-2 but is parachute never or just partially opened. The Val was shot down and credit was given to Sedaker. The ACR seems to think all 4 of the aircraft got hits on the Val but Sedaker finished the job.

    Okay, now I have a connection . . . two, in fact . . .

    Like Sedaker, my father was also XO of BHR, this when she came out of the conversion. Somewhere around here there's a big chunk of wood with a brass plaque celebrating my father being the first to land aboard and first to launch from BHR's nice new angled flight deck.

    Later, when my father was CO of USS Ranger (1961-1962) the assigned air wing was CVW-19. So, connections, one BHR, two CVW-19. Taaa Daaaa.

    Yes Sedaker was XO for the great George Bullard and Jimmie Johnson was Marshall Beebe's XO when my step-dad was onboard. 1958-62ish
    This is the only photo I have found by chance in the NA.

    According to Neil Armstrong's authorized biography "First Man" written by James R. Hansen, Marshall Beebe was Neil Armstrong's Air Group Commander on the USS Essex during the Korea War.

    George Bullard was a long-time family friend; he and my father were classmates at USNA, class of 1938. George was captured by the Japanese after being shot down and spent two years as a POW. Shortly after the war was over, my father was stationed at NAS Patuxent. One afternoon he calls home and tells my mother that he’s bringing an old friend home for dinner, but doesn’t say who. So, good navy wife, she whips up something nice and on schedule in walks my father with tall, but very, very skinny, George Bullard. She’s horrified . . . dinner is chicken and RICE! Forever after, George was happy to visit as long as my mother promised nothing with rice in it. George and my father were promoted to Rear Admiral at about the same time in 1966, being, literally, a couple of numbers different in lineage. Unfortunately, while on leave shortly thereafter, George Bullard was felled by a heart attack. My father always said that George never really fully recovered from a couple of years as a guest of the Japanese and that his death was the result of the long term effect.

    Marshall Beebe, indeed, commanded Air Group 5 on USS Essex during the Korean War, reporting as CAG July 1950. For his performance as CAG5 he was awarded the Legion of Merit with Combat “V”, the Distinguished Flying Cross (his 4th DFC award) and two Air Medals (his 10th and 11th AM awards). He commanded USS Pyro from September 1959 to November 1960 and then took command of USS Bon Homme Richard in December 1960. In January 1962 he became Chief of Staff to ComCarDivThree from which he retired in March 1963. Captain Beebe’s awards included the Navy Cross, Legion of Merit with Combat "V," Distinguished Flying Cross with three Gold Stars; the Air Medal with ten Gold Stars, Purple Heart Medal, the Presidential Unit Citation Ribbon and the Navy Unit Commendation Ribbon. His service and campaign medals included the American Defense Service Medal; American Campaign Medal; Asiatic-Pacific Campaign Medal; World War II Victory Medal; National Defense Service Medal; Korean Service Medal; and the United Nations Service Medal.

    Rich,
    My step-dad said that Beebe and Bullard were outstanding in every respect. That's high praise from Don who retired a Capt.
    I'll post some shots from the BHR cruise book tomorrow.
