USS Shenandoah Airship Photograph

Recommended Posts

Very simply, it could have been the date the photo was printed. The USS Shenandoah crashed in September 1925.

Yeah, all but one ended pretty catastrophically. Around here, you can sometimes find pieces of the Shenandoah. I've got two of them.

Looking for the following:

452nd and 447th Bomb Group items

Anything 12th Armored- especially uniforms

155th Assault Helicopter Company, Camp Coryell, or Ban Me Thuot Vietnam items[/center]

WWII US Navy Uniforms from the Battle Off Samar: USS Johnston DD-557, USS Hoel DD-553, USS Samuel B. Roberts DE-413, USS Heermann DD-532, USS Dennis DE-405, USS John C. Butler DE-339, USS Raymond DE-341, USS Fanshaw Bay St. Lo, White Plains, Kalinin Bay, Kitkun Bay and Gambier Bay...

This photo and piece of the skin of the ill fated USS Shenandoah was sent to my Grand Mother in Brooklyn, NY by her cousin who lived in Ohio. My Grand Mother was a Navy Mother and I always wanted to join the US Navy when I was kid. So, she sent me all kinds of Navy items to include recruiting posters and photos of ships etc.I destroyed most of the items by tacking them to my wall but these were always amongst my most treasured items.Therefore they survived my childhood.
