Squadron (Ron) 4 Emblem

Ron 4 Emblem

Based in Melville, Rhode Island, at the PT Training Center, Squadron (Ron) 4 was the unit that gave the PT sailors their first taste of life on a PT boat.  The insignia of Ron 4 included the iconic mosquito image, in this picture cast as the wise instructor teaching the junior bugs the finer points of their boat.  This picture is courtesy of PT Boats, Inc.  As proud as the PT sailors were of their special role in the USN, they never took themselves too seriously.
