VP-6 “Junior Officers Protection Association”
“JOPA” Patch, late 1980s-1990s
Patch submitted by Reed Smith
 
VP-6 TACCO Patch 1960
In January 1960, VP-6 got newly equipped P2V-5FS (Jets) and Julie (active PDC tracking subs) and Jezebel (passive grams and writeouts) Equipment.  All crews had three Pilots (before the days of NFOs). We went to two weeks of J/J School in San Diego. We returned to Barber's Point and flew submarine flights day and night for 11 days.  I was junior in Crew 12 (ALL DAY/NIGHT Patch) and was the designated Tactical Coordinator.  In those days all Pilots went through Celestial Navigation Training in Corpus Christi, TX.  We shared navigation duties on long flights, but the junior Pilot was the ONLY qualified Tactical Coordinator.  I designed the patch for all of the Third Pilots (Tactical Coordinators).
