Here’s a great old commercial. I haven’t a clue when it was made, but it’s pretty doggone good. It certainly captures the beau ideal that we of the Navy’s Aviation side of the family see ourselves as filling.
BTW: For a great and insightful look at what life was like on liberty for my fellow blueshirts, There’s a wonderful article from The Goat Locker entitled “Airdale Liberty Bars“. If you have a few moments, it’s a good read and good gouge. That was my youth.
H/T to my friend Thomas Cheever for the link.
