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.
25 Japanese exchange students from the Oak Harbor Public Schools Cultural Exchange Program visit the museum. Along with viewing the PBY aircraft on display, the students participated in a scavenger hunt and got a chance to meet former astronaut Heidi Piper. The museum hosts groups of all sizes and ages.
