My dad served in the Navy (USNR) as a pilot in VS-5 on the Yorktown CV-5. He took part in the 1941 GHQ Manuevers in Sept 1941 down in Lake Charles. Later, when he could no longer fly due to a head injury in a crash, he served as XO and CO of CASU's 4, 8, 9, 14 and 55. CASU 14 was the most interesting - 1943 at Munda Air Base on New Georgia Island in the Solomons. He arrived on the same day the air base was secured after a long battle with the Japanese. This battle is much akin to the battle for Guadalcanal - very nasty for our troops. All but one pilot from VS-5 has left us, but I would like to hear from anyone who served on the Yorktown (Old Yorky). I am also particularly interested in hearing from anyone who served in the CASU's mentioned above, be it Navy, Marine, Army, coastwatchers, seabees, etc!!! Also, anyone familiar with the Navy's participation in the War Games of 1941. Any help will be most appreciated. Retracing my dad's footsteps during his war years has taken two years so far and is still ongoing.
