No hard copy yet but that will be next step. And thanks for the response.
My Dad is a pivotal character in the book and to really get a little better understanding about who he was, check out this video of life on a carrier during combat ops in the Pacific.
In another twenty years WWII will have the same distance from the present as the Civil War was when I grew up. That blows my mind because kids my age (and many on this forum) grew up with WWII history all around us. Many of our fathers were vets in that war, Korea or both.
Landing on a deck of a carrier has about as much chance of completion as a drop on a critical wave. And my Dad did it at night. You'll see some pretty wild landings where the pilot still ended up walking away. But mostly you'll see our fathers. Real footage.
