"YNC Ron Woolsey was VQ-4's Admin Chief in the early-mid 70s. I remember attending his squadron farewell when he picked up LDO." Mike Davidson

"Click on the link to Ron's obituary, then look at the photo gallery of some 190 photos, go through them until you fine Ron being promoted to LDO. He is standing in front of VQ-4's spook, Cliff Greer is on the left side and I worked with him in the vault, he was CMS Custodian." Jack Bowers
