The Fighting Lady (1944)

This 40 second clip shows my dad in actual combat during World War 2 in June 1944 east of the Mariana Islands in the Pacific. He was a 23 year old Marine when this was filmed. In the First sequence he is the gunner at the bottom right shooting at Japanese War Planes attacking his ship Aircraft Carrier USS Wasp. He is then shown close up during combat two more times toward the end of the clip. Happy Veterans Day Dad. I love you.
