WWII US Navy Squadron Patch
Navy Patrol Squadron 7
VP-7  (Early) ---> VP-7F  --->   VP-11  --->   VP-21
4.5 inches

Capt. Marc Mitscher commanded Patrol Wing One, 48 PBYs from VP-7, VP-9, VP-10, VP-11 and VP-12, in January 1939 during a flight from San Diego to Coco Solo, headed for Caribbean war games. There were 336 officers, flying cadets and enlisted men on the largest massed hop in U.S. aviation history. All but three made the 3,087 miles in one hop. Those three PBYs landed and refueled as a precautionary measure.

In August 1944, at NAAS Camp Kearny, California Patrol Squadron SEVEN was commissioned as VP-119. During WWII the squadron operated out of MCAS/NAS Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii and Clark Field in the Philippines. In 1947 the squadron was renamed VP-ML-7 and moved to MCAS Miramar during which it transitioned to P2V aircraft. That same year it moved again to NAS Quonset Point, Rhode Island.
