For those who served in the RVAH Community, their families, and friends!

Ernest Borgnine, Formerly Gunners Mate 1st Class, USN (Honorary Chief Petty Officer)

Navy Veteran passes away at age 95

Borgnine joined the Navy in 1935 and served on a destroyer during World War II. He weighed 135 pounds when he enlisted. He left the Navy 10 years later, weighing exactly 100 pounds more.

"I wouldn't trade those 10 years for anything," he said in 1956. "The Navy taught me a lot of things. It molded me as a man, and I made a lot of wonderful friends."

May our shipmate have "Fair wind and following seas" on his trip into eternity.
