Wow!!!
It is sad to think that the families found out about their son's death through a telegram. Thanks for sharing.

Hey Kurt !

Incredible and historic grouping !! Another powerful reminder of how horribly difficult it was for families with loved ones fighting for freedoms in distant lands...then and now !!

Thanks again,

Vic

Photo of the radiomen from VS-6 days before Otis was killed.



Can you tell me what year the photo of the radiomen from VS-6 was taken. My grandfather was a RM3 in Scouting Squardron 6 when the Enterpise was first launched but he left the service in May 1940.

This website was posted by Ann, a member of the Dennis family. She has done an awesome job with it.

http://www.dondennis...nnis/index.html


I have just been in contact with her and am going to contribute copies of as many things as she needs for her website. She always had hopep his material hadnt been split to the "high winds"over the years and is very relieved it has been preserved intact.

I have some items that do not relate to Otis that I am going to send her.

This is my first time seeing this remarkable grouping. It is amazing that such a complete grouping could be held together in tact. They simply don't come much more complete than this. The help that you have provided to the family member is commendable. Jack
