 Per my facebook comments, one of the best Naval officers I ever had the pleasure of knowing.

Not only one of the best Naval officers that I served under, but also one of the finest men that I ever have met.  Always enjoyed the time with him when he would explain the various things about Naval aviation to me as a young enlisted guy.

He was my CO in RVAH-9 and a really great one. He made CAG and was Captian, USS America.We were good friends and met once after we both retired. RIP, Bill.
