Four Essex-class carriers at anchor at Ulithi, Caroline Islands, about 1600 on 2 Dec 1944; L to R: Wasp, Yorktown, Hornet, Hancock; viewed from Ticonderoga with sight of her F6F-5 Hellcat fighters .
At the point this picture was taken, my father was aboard the Yorktown. He was a Hellcat pilot.

Cowards die many times before their deaths, the valiant never taste of death but once. Of all the wonders that I have seen, it seem to me most strange, that men should fear, seeing that death, a necessary end, will come when it will come.
