During the PBY-Naval Air Museum monthly Speakers Luncheon at the CPO Club. Left to right are Win Stites (93), Neil Stamey(96), Harry Patton(97), George Behrend(99) and the speaker Jack Holder(97).

Jack Holder recounted his WWII experiences which included serving in PBYs at Pearl Harbor on Dec 7, Guadalcanal, Midway and in B-24s(PB4Y1s) during the Battle of the Atlantic. This gathering of five WWII Naval aviators was a rare and unique event, especially for the men themselves who had a marvelous time becoming acquainted and sharing stories.
