More John Wayne Photos …

with 5 comments

Below are some photos that my father had of  John Wayne.  Now, as usual, I know nothing about the photos – the date, the people in the photos, etc, etc.  They obviously were made on an aircraft carrier, which one, I do not know.  There was an aircraft carrier, the Antietam, that was stationed in Pensacola at the time and I believe that it was shown at the start of the movie, The Wing’s of Eagles, but I am not sure.  We rented the movie years ago and watched it, but to me, it was a very depressing story and the movie seemed to drag.  The part showing Pensacola was the best part and it was only in the first 15 minutes or so of the film.  All that being said … these photos are interesting and I have never seen them anywhere else, so I hope you enjoy them.

Like I said earlier, my father did not take these … I can only assume that these were the ones that John Wayne would have sent them.  Knowing my dad, he was not a collector of photographs of other people, so unless they were sent them to him , he would not have gone out and got them.  If anyone knows anything about these photos, please let us hear from you … Thanks again for looking …
