Hi Folks:

 

I wanted to post this US Navy grouping I purchased awhile ago, a US Navy officer's pilot grouping consisting of two (2) belt buckles, three (3) cig lighters, three (3) pilot wings, one (1) "CHAIR" pilot wngs, three (3) sets of dogtags, and a brick w/dedication

The officer appears to have been on the USS Enterprise, CVAN-65, when it went on a cruise in 1967. The belt buckle and ZIPPO lighter have the "USS Enterprise, CVA(N)-65.

One belt buckle is really nice and heavy...w/USN pilot wings, "FAR EAST AREA", "VP-47" and the pilots name "GORDON S. PETERSEN"

One "Prince Rocky" lighter has "USS Yorktown, CVS-10, The Fighting Lady" on one side and on the other engraved "LT.G.S.PETERSEN, 86000th LANDING, 27 OCT. 1962"

One "Vulcan" lighter has "SAM PETERSEN, NAS AGANA, GUAM, 5E6 ACIE DUCIE" and on the other side is "DUVA IS DEVINE"

Two (2) clutch back USN pilot wings..and one (1) is marked "1/20 10K" and "250" while the other isn't marked.

One (1) pin-back USN pilot wings is hallmarked "LGB 1/20 10KGF"

One (2) set of "CHAIR PILOT" Gold wings......guess when he got promoted....he started "piloting a chair/desk" ...really cool piece

Two (2) sets of regular dogtags w/same ser#s and one (1) set of "old" Oval dogtags for the same "GORDON SAM PETERSEN" w/different ser#.

A red brick from an Officer's Club at Sandy Point dedicated.

 

I also found a picture of LtCdr Petersen as the Communication Officer for the USS Enterprise in the 1967 cruise book.  In addition, I found LT Petersen listed in the USS Yorktown 1962 Cruise book listed in the VS-23 (Air Anti-submarine Sqaudron). He is in the front row, the 3rd officer from the left.

Thanks....I agree....I'm still trying to figure out the cig. lighter with "5E6 ACIE DUCIE" for NAS AGANA, GUAM.  Is 5E6 ACIE DUCIE an aviation unit or a ground support unit?

The Acie Ducie club was the E-5 and E-6 enlisted club. It was for First and Second Class Petty Officers, hence the name "Acie Ducie". Had a lot of fun in Acie Ducie clubs!!!

I seem to recall many years ago that NAS OCEANA in Virginia Beach had an " ACIE DUCIE " club on the far side of the field and was accessible via Potters Road. I think its now the ' Skeet Range '.  Not sure if the building is still there. Anyone remember ?

Edelweisse, I just recently purchased LCDR Sam Petersens USN flight jacket, I was doing some research on him and saw your post! The jacket is complete with many patches from the USS Yorktown, USS Enterprise, CVSG-55, VS-23 anti submarine air group squadron patches and VP-47 Japan 1956-1957 patch. The jacket is in great shape too!

I love the brick from the Sand Point O Cub. I was stationed there in the 80s when it was then Naval Station Puget Sound. It closed not too long after I left. Thanks for posting.
