    Uncle was an aviation mechanic-recip engines. Missed Pearl Harbor because they were taking planes to Wake, but made Midway and just about everything else from there to VJ day. Dad was supposed to join him, but then the Navy wouldn't let him because of 2 only sons rule or something similar. Dad worked on bomb sights and recon cameras.

    Yup, they spent a lot of effort moving people around--my dad was in radio school, sub school, eventually some civil affairs thing learning Japanese, but was finally sent on to Okinawa on D+10. A horrible experience. He was there for a year after the war. My late father-in-law moved from one thing to another and never left the states. His brother ended up in Germany as BAR man at the end, and said most of the Germans he saw were running like hell with their hands up to surrender to the Americans before the Russians got there.

    Thanks for the reps. Dad got stuck in Klamath Falls, Or. NAS while his brother was in the Pacific from Midway to Japan. Dad finally made it to the Air Station on Ford Island at Pearl Harbor before the war ended and they sent him home.
