Dad – Navy 1941


A memory about Dad: This is one of the times I wish I had asked Dad (who turned 18 in September of 1941) how he spent his 1st Christmas away from home and in war-torn Honolulu. I do remember that he told us he arrived in Honolulu one week after Pearl Harbor was bombed. He was part of the Navy team that helped to rebuild. When we, the family of four, returned from Australia in 1957, we had a layover in Honolulu. Dad showed us a hotel  where he helped to rebuild the front plaza area. I think this photo was taken when Dad graduated from Boot Camp in San Diego.
