Interesting patch, I believe it started life as a VS 723  and was later modified to be a VP 725  gorgeous patch either way  from NAS Glenview IL

Nice USNR patch Bearmon,

 

There were two (2) VP-725 Squadrons.  I wonder if there were two or more different patches for their squadron.

 

1st VP-725 Oct 1958 Jan 1961 NAS Glenview, Ill.
2nd VP-725 Jan 1963 Jan 1968 NAS Glenview, Ill.

VA(HM)-10 HEAVY ATTACK MINING SQUADRON TEN - 1956 to 1959 (Previously and subsequently VP-17)
 
On 1 JUL 56, while deployed to NAF Naha, Okinawa, Japan, Patrol Squadron Seventeen (VP-17) was redesignated Heavy Attack Mining Squadron Ten.
 
VA(HM)-10 was one of two such squadrons in the NAVY. One west coast - one east coast. Flying Lockheed P2V-6 Neptunes, VA(HM)-10 retained the tail letters-"BH". 
 
In April of 1957 the squadron began to transition to the P2V-5F. The squadron's P2V-6M aircraft were transferred to the reserves in preparation for a WestPac deployment in the -5Fs. On 1 SEP 57, VA(HM)-10 deployed to MCAS Iwakuni, Japan and FAW-6 with their -5Fs. All NAVY patrol squadrons received new tail codes letters on 9 DEC 57. VA(HM)-10 dropped their old "BH" tail code and began using "ZE".
 
On 18 MAY 59 the squadron deployed with their -5Fs to NAS Kodiak, Alaska. On 1 JUL 59 Heavy Attack Mining Squadron Ten (VA(HM)-10) was redesignated back to PATROL SQUADRON SEVENTEEN (VP-17)

An interesting 1950's P-2 Neptune pair with the same King Neptune design.....

 

VP-67F1 & VP-742 - USNR Squadrons based at Jacksonville NAS later folded into the fourth VP-62.

 

1 Nov 1970: VP-62 was established at NAS Jacksonville, Fla., under the operational control of Commander Reserve Patrol Wings, Atlantic, with a detachment at NAS Atlanta, Ga. VP-62 was established from the personnel and assets of VPs 67F1 and 7F2 as a result of a major reorganization of the Naval Air Reserve that took place in 1970.  DANAS Dictionary of American Naval Aviation Squadrons https://www.history....fs/chap3-11.pdf

FLEET AIR WING FIVE 
 
Throughout 1945 and 1946, units associated with Fleet Air Wing FIVE were decommissioned or demobilized to post war levels of men and equipment. In 1948, Commander Fleet Air Wings, Atlantic Fleet and Fleet Air Wing FIVE were again made a unified command when Patrol Squadrons transitioned to the P2V "Neptune" aircraft.
 
After the North Koreans crossed the 38th parallel in 1950, the American reduction-in-forces trend was reversed, and several of the subordinate commands belonging to COMFAIRWING FIVE were recommissioned. Although Fleet Air Wing FIVE was not directly involved in the Korean conflict, its squadrons contributed to the war effort by assuming many of the responsibilities of commands, which had gone to the Pacific. The P5M-1 and the P2V were the mainstays of America's Patrol Squadrons throughout the 1950s and into the 1960s. After the Korean conflict, Fleet Air Wing FIVE coordinated the cold war ASW missions of squadrons operating from more than a dozen different bases in Europe, Africa and North America.
 
The 1960s marked the beginning of a new era in Naval Patrol Aviation. In 1962, Wing FIVE began the transition to the P3A "Orion" maritime patrol aircraft. During the Cuban Missile Crisis, both the P2V and the P3A became internationally well known due to their surveillance of Soviet ships. Fleet Air Wing FIVE aircraft also played an important part in America's early manned space program, helping to locate Mercury and Gemini capsules after splashdown. In 1966, Wing FIVE began deployments in the Western Pacific. Based at Naval Station Sangley Point in the Philippines, squadrons flew patrol and combat missions in support of Seventh Fleet operations in Vietnam.
 
The present Patrol and Reconnaissance Wing FIVE structure was developed in the early 1970s. Fleet Air Wings Atlantic/Fleet Air Wing FIVE was relocated to Brunswick, Maine and assumed command of Patrol Squadrons TEN, ELEVEN, TWENTY-THREE, and TWENTY-SIX upon the disestablishment of Fleet Air Wing THREE. Patrol Squadrons FORTY-FOUR and EIGHT were transferredred to Brunswick in 1970 and 1971 respectively, completing the makeup of COMFAIRWINGSLANT/COMFAIRWING FIVE which returned to its former designation as COMPATWINGSLANT / COMPATWING FIVE. Three years after the move to Brunswick, Commander Patrol Wing FIVE was again established as a separate command.
 
With the end of the cold war, Maritime Patrol Squadron assets were reduced and relocated. COMPATWING FIVE disestablished Patrol Squadron FORTY-FOUR in May 1991, Patrol Squadron TWENTY-THREE in December 1994, and Patrol Squadron ELEVEN in August 1997.
