Comments: My dad CDR Albert Greenleaf Boren USNR-R passed away today. His nickname was "Buck". He was 91 and spoke fondly of his time in the Navy. He was retired longer (43 years) than on active duty (27 years). I will miss him eventhough he was seldom around. After he retired he had a wonderlust and could never settle down. God bless.

Comments: I'm looking for information regarding ENS Jack Brinkley. He was flying an F4U Corsair that was shot down in Korea on 23 Dec 1950. I'm military, stationed in Korea, and want to research the incident for my mother, who was friends with Jack in high school.
