Veterans Day

My Dad- WW2 and Korea. Gave me his Rolex at 16yo. Miss him. BTW engine failure at the end of the cat launch.

One more in flight gear circa 1944.

CV-40 was the USS Tarawa light carrier. Wood decks and lack of ability to touch and go were hallmarks of that period.

Amazing photos! Your dad looked very sharp in uniform. My grandfather also severed in both WW2 and Korea. Brave men. They truly were the greatest generation. Do you still have the Rolex?
