Grouping from scientist who served on Admiral Byrd's flagship, USS/USNS WYANDOT (AKA-92) on Deep Freeze I and II after WYANDOT finished her duty with Operation SUNEC.

WYANDOT brought the Byrd expedition to the pole to establish the Little America base.

Reposting this one from the same year, same detachment

 

Now that we've seen two different colors for the same detachment, is there something significant about Blue and Red in regard to their duties?

I've always understood NASU to be Naval Aviation Support Unit Iwakuni (now MCAS Iwakuni)

I recently picked up a grouping named to Dave Mericle, same USN Electronics Tech that Mericle Rock was named after. (I posted some pics in the Groupings section)

 

I googled it quite a bit but really havent found much on it. How does someone get a nanatak rock out cropping named after them?? Are there any Navy journals that you know of that I could search? I would like to read up on it.

 

Thanks!
