Other Comments:
                         Bill had entered the US Navy at age 16, with a forged birth certificate. I knew him as "Uncle Bill". Not a blood realative, but instead he was a local neighbor who my parents selected as my Godfather. He entertaind me at a young age with stories of his Navy flying. I picked up snipets here and there as I grew older, and I just wish I had more details now. I missed out on getting to know him better while I was an adult, as he moved to Florida after his retirement from the Niagara Mohawk Power Company, where he had worked as a "Lineman" and "Line Crew Foreman" .

                         With my growing interest in Navy history, I feel I cheated myself out of a great learning opportunity by not keeping in better contact with him after he movewd to Florida. I cherish the interest the man took in me. This sight gives me a small chance to honor him.
