I'm not usually one to post YouTube videos on this blog nor do I normally stray "off topic" from Tulsa's history. However, this footage showed up in my inbox today and I was so moved I wanted to share it. Perhaps because of my involvement with the new exhibit at Tulsa Historical Society is why. It covers the 1940's and WWII is, of course, touched upon quite a bit. More likely, however, it is because any one of these Navy pilots could be my late father. This is rare, color film showing life on a carrier ship in the Pacific. It leaves me in awe.
And so very proud.
