Folks, I believe this will still work: Google the words "Still Out There" and you should find a short color film that introduces you to Torpedo Squadron 8. Each plane is shown with crew in front and names imposed on the screen. Then they are shown taking off, never to return to this world. Famed Director John Ford (Naval Captain, later Reserve Admiral, Purple Heart on Midway Island) mad e31 copies of this film. One for himself, one for George Gay and the other 29 for the next of kin of the deceased. Commander Waldron's daughter posted her copy on youtube and it should still be there. It is certainly worth the effort to see. And please give a nod of thanks to Richard Fernandez (AKA Wretchard T. Cat) who called it to the attention of his friends. Thanks, folks.
