This one came in today as well.  Great condition and named to Rear Admiral Charles Lynn Strain, who served in the Pacific during World War II as a senior officer with the Navy Construction Battalions (the "Seabees").

I love the "old school" look of the blue covers, and that one is a real beauty. Thanks for posting,

Really struggling to find much info on this Admiral, anybody know anything or can send me in the right direction? I searched the Seabees, USNA graduates, etc... and there seems to be very little out there that I nave turned up anyway.

Thanks,
