USN/USMC Jet Age Flight Helmets


Recommended Posts

I don't feel comfortable about doing that unless I spoke to him first, and for a number of reasons I don't want to do that. If it were a golf question or the like no problem, but one reason I became the caretaker of his helmet was he wanted to move past that part of his life. I need to continue to respect that.

No problem. I wanted to see if I could help identify the squadron, but I completely understand.

Your grandfather was a true hero. Awarded the Navy Cross (posthumously) for courage a POW in North Vietnam.

 

Interestingly, my uncle was a turret gunner in VMTB-232 from February '45 until his pilot and JASCO artillery spotter were lost on Okinawa in late April.
