Hello from NV
« on: July 18, 2016, 10:59:08 PM »
I have been collecting military memorabilia/ surplus/ firearms etc for about 40 years. I am also a volunteer at the USS Hornet Museum in Alameda, CA and developed two exhibits onboard honoring the men of Air Group Eleven. I am always looking for items associated with CVG-11 and contact information for former members of Air Group Eleven and their relatives. I also have an extensive photo archive of about 2000 photos from CVG-11 (1942-1945).
