USS Arkansas

I have been working on research and editing pictures in an attempt to put together a clear picture of Daddy’s Navy years.  It seems that every time I answer one question, it generates 10 more.   His Navy years will be divided into manageable segments:  USS Arkansas, USS Helena Shakedown cruise, USS Helena to Hawaii, bombing of Pearl Harbor, and USS Melville.  I may end up dividing some of these if they get too long.

Please read the blogroll Navy Part 1 USS Arkansas before watching the Navy part 1 USS Arkansas ppt.

I hope you enjoy the information as much as I enjoyed writing it for you!

    Oh, this is so… SOOOO very awesome!! I have NEVER seen some of these pictures and certainly not the first one of Daddy in his “training uniform”. This is so tremendous and such a beautiful gift!! I wonder what stories Grandpa (F.E.F.) told Daddy about his own Navy days?

    Is it just me, or does the last picture of him remind anyone else of Wesley in “The Princess Bride?”
