Google uss bataan cruise books there is a NavyDE site that has a bunch of the cruise books online. The uss independence patch is an early one from right around 1960. So you can bounce between the two cruise books to check for your pilot

Yep...I looked through the Bataan and Independence but couldn't find his name on the rosters for the cruise books they have listed. Did see that VS-871 was the anti-sub patrol unit for Bataan during '52-'53, and used the Black Cat patch seen on the left shoulder.

Here is a picture of the VA-75 Skipper from the Independence 1960-61 cruise. Nice view of the VA-75 patch.

I did pull that picture from the cruise book, but I was surprised that I couldn't find my pilot's name in the VA-75 roster for the 1961 USS Independence Cruise.
