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)

Probably 1960's. VP-28 was the Hawaiian Warriors, flying out of NAS Barbers Point. They were disestablished there in 1969.
