Pictures for Heroes

WWII Hero, Mr. Laverne Peck flew over 45 combat missions as a fighter pilot in the South Pacific during WWII. One particular instance nearly left him dead. He and his wingman were catapulted off a carrier for a strafing mission, when Mr. Peck’s engine died. The next thing he remembers is waking up, still strapped in the cockpit, completely submerged underwater. He managed to free himself along with his liferaft from the still-sinking airplane and followed the direction of the bubbles to reach the surface.
What he didn’t know and would later learn is that he was underwater for 8 minutes. His life was saved by a brand new water tight oxygen mask that they were newly issued. He also didnt know that his wingman had reported the crash and noted, ‘No survivors’. Mr. Peck dressed his wounds and gathered himself to prepare what could be weeks alone on the open ocean. Luck struck again 16 hours later, just before sunset, when a detroyer in the distance saw the raft floating in the ocean, and changed course to pick up the injured pilot. He returned to combat in just over 4 weeks time. On sunny days he can catch the sun glinting off the glass that is still stuck in his right eye from that crash. Thanm you for your bravery and sacrifice. If not for men like you we would be living in a different world today. #picturesforheroes #veteransportraitproject #heroesofthesecondworldwar #va #veteran #pilot #fighterpilot #hero #crash #crashlanding #pacificocean #navy #usmc #army #airforce #aircorps #nasa The National WWII Museum Honor Flight Bluegrass Honor Flight of Southern Indiana CNN Fox 11 Los Angeles ABC7 ABC News Ellen DeGeneres

Pretty cool, Wade.

Video we promised of the HELO from Fallon Naval Base landing for a Simulation Decompression Event..... We are the ONLY hospital to do Emergency Decompression for the Naval Base in Nevada. We learn so much from doing these simulations..... this was beyond AMAZING!

General information

Welcome to the U.S. Navy Naval Aerospace and Operational Physiology Program's Facebook Fan page sponsored by the U.S. Navy. This page is intended to provide updated information and discussion on topics about the Naval Aerospace and Operational Physiology Program (NAOPP). The purpose of this program is to train selected United States Navy Medical Service Corps (MSC) officers in a course of instruction leading to designation as a Naval Aerospace Physiologist. This is a warfare designation with successful officers receiving MSC wings of gold. The Naval Aerospace Physiologist training program is designed to develop the skills, knowledge, and self confidence essential for optimal support of the Naval Aerospace Physiology Program. It fosters development of a strong and positive identification with the collective personality, lifestyle, and professionalism of Naval Aviation. It includes training in hypobaric chamber operations, aeromedical aspects of flight, sensory physiology, aviation life support systems, acceleration physiology, emergency egress, water survival, and aircraft mishap investigation. The academic phases of the six month course are taught at the Naval Aerospace Medical Institute and Naval Aviation Schools Command, both located onboard the Naval Air Station in Pensacola, Florida. Classes normally convene in August, October, and December. Upon completing the academic phases, students must demonstrate aeronautical adaptability by completing the prescribed flight training curriculum at Naval Air Station Whiting Field in Milton, Florida. Flight training includes both fixed wing and helicopter experiences. While this is an open forum, it's also a family friendly one, so please keep your comments and wall posts clean.

Today is CAPT P. W. Paul Scrimshaw's 97th Birthday. Congratulations!
Just finished reading the hard copy of this quarter’s Naval Aviation News, and wanted to share since it had so many relevant articles for our community. There’s an article on PEs that is written by Admiral Joyner, and a phenomenal article on night vision technology in the F-35 that talks about how a friend of mine did some of the first shipboard landings with NVC, and some of the challenges that were seen with that test program. There’s also info on CVW-5 moving to Iwakuni, the completion of the F-35 program’s SDD, and CNATRA updates. Enjoy, Ladies and Gents!
These surfaced at TW-6 in Pensacola during a recent office clean up. No date is published. Anyone know when they were created/issued?
Anyone know who this was made after? Hint: TW6 AMSO 2008 'ish
