VS-891 stayed at NAS Seattle until 1969 when flight operations were closed down and all Squadrons were moved to NAS Whidbey Island . VS-891 became VS 68T1 just before or after the move to NAS Whidbey. It was deactivated (taken out of existence) around 1973 and I believe most squadron members were moved into VP-69 either flying P2v's or P-3's.
I was in VS-891 from July 60 – Nov 70 going from AR to ATN1 and transferring rates to AW when it opened up. I started in the AIRCATS Program. Six months active duty and 7 ½ years reserve time.
VS-891 was activated for the Berlin buildup on 01 Oct 1961 for a year. I made ATN3 shortly after going on active duty and had the good fortune to also be drawing flight pay.
Most of the pictures are from that time.
