Blast from the Past – WWII
TBT – From WWII…Betty Grable and Linda Darnell
After The attack on Pearl Harbor, my Dad became a submariner and spent the rest of the War on War Patrols in the South Pacific. My Dad was a believer in “putting in a chit.” That is “Navy” for asking for something. The worse thing that happens when you “put in a chit,” is that you are turned down…no worse a position than before you “put in the chit.”
These are pictures I found in my Dad’s stuff from WWII. Notice he was skeptical as to who was really signing these pictures…and he even attempted to pay Betty Grable…and she replied personally.
