I am Jim David AMH2. I served in VF-62 from September 1961 until June 1964.

VF-62 squadron was on the Lexington, Enterprise and Shangri-La during my tenure.

There doesn’t seem to be much information on the squadron so I have taken it on myself to try to bring together, on one website, all the information I have been able to garner.

My shipmate Jim “Hoot” Gibson has volunteered to be the “webmeister” and I am the Researcher in Chief.

So... watch this website for updates as we are able to get all our information in proper format for the site.

We are pleased to do this.

Meanwhile, if you have any information about VF-62 please send them to JimD@VF62.org. I would be pleased to receive any and all information.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
