Ancient Pelican Posts


The VP-45 Association was "founded" way back in 1991 although informal gatherings began earlier around 1988. The first Association Secretary/Newsletter Editor was Charley Caldwell, a PBM/P5M pilot in VP-45 in the mid-50's. Charley kept great records and provided us with Association Newsletters from the very beginning through 1997. Ray Butler, another of our fine members, also helped us out with a few final missing Posts. Currently we are up to date and have here (and in the New Newsletter section) every Pelican Post newsletter published by the Association.
