I recently did an oil painting in honor of my
He was on a sea plane tender and reconnaissance
ship, the AV-4 USS CURTISS. He brought back pictures from his reunions
and I asked him the name of the planes they had on board ship.
I looked very carefully at the photos and noticed
an OS2U Vought Kingfisher.
He was on board ship on number one gun at the bow
of this ship December 7,1941. I wanted to paint one of those planes for
my dad and to keep his memory alive.
There are pictures of his ship at Pearl Harbor with
the wreckage of an OS2U on the fantail.
