If anyone wants to take a look at Bill Brien Holt's profile, it's up. This was the officer that signed my Dad's Aviators Flight Log Book a couple of months in 1945.

Thanks to all who helped track down information and sources for BB Holt. If you want to edit the profile, be my guest. There is information from his obituary I have not entered yet, survivors, etc., and another article I need to add info from. It'll be a while before I can work on connecting him to our One Tree. I need to get him a WWII sticker!

Again, thanks to all who helped!

Good job Pip. Nice bio.
Great work honoring our military pilots!   Did your Dad keep in contact with him?

This reminds me to work on my Father-In-Laws bio.... he kept a diary aboard the U.S.S. Alabama for the last few years of WWII.... he was prone to sea sickness and titled his diary   "Two Years Over The Rail".
Thanks to you and Rodney, both!

Peggy, I also have my father-in-law’s WWII diary. It doesn’t cover a,long period of time, but it does give a glimpse into life on an island. He was in the USS Blie Ridge as a communications officer. I need to create a space for it!
Would love to read it!   Let us know when it's posted.

Here's how I posted  "Two Years Over The Rail"..... someone transcribed it many years ago.... I'll have to try to find out who and give them credit https://www.wikitree.com/photo.php/6/65/Sneegas-1.pdf
Excellent!!! Thanks!
Put in pix of the airplanes he flew too. If you create a free space page, upload the pix to it, then use that pic ID, you can put them in among the bio text. Otherwise, the pix just run down the right side
That’s a great idea!
