August 15, 1945

A couple months ago, I acquired this newspaper. most fascinating, isn't it?

Sixty-four years ago, this is what was in our local newspaper. Note the sinking of the Indinapolis was no small story. Still, in the lower part of the page is a story that is of interest to me and you and anyone else tht reads this site. See, to the lower left? Where it says "Navy Flier Dies In Valley Crash?"

Now, I am still awaiting the accident report from the Navy, but they are, apparently, in the midst of a move and it may be awhile before the files I have requested can be sent to me. Still, it is an interesting find, don't you think?
