Hey Cyd -- Wow, related to Frank McCrary! A giant around here in naval history! I believe he was also an commander of one of the early carriers that would come in here, Saratoga maybe. Great to hear from you!! -- Bruce Linder
Yes, The Saratoga. Unfortunately he passed away 2 years before I was born, so I only know him from photos and stories. My maternal Grandfather was RAdm Fred Dickey, who was also a pilot (seaplanes) in the 20's and 30's, was on the Wasp, then was 1st Commanding Officer of The Hancock. Feel blessed to have been born here and into a family with roots in this special place!
