Cuba Gooding, Jr. also played Petty Officer Doris Miller in Pearl Harbor

Remember the old Johnny Cash song, "A boy named Sue"? I think P/O Miller's parents might have been motivated by the same principle. Looks like it worked!

BTW world war 1 nerd ,  I compliment you on your presentation of the images. How did equalize their sizing and "frame" them like that? Very slick!  ;)

I use Microsoft Publisher which is part of the Microsoft Office package.
