//michael newman// Date: October 12, 2015 [edited from hard copy received with the album] I am sending my father, William James Rader's photo album detailing his tour in Kodiak during the Korean War in the US Navy.He passed away in 1997 at 79 years of age from lung cancer.Those memories we will send to the National WWII Museum in New Orleans.He was activated along with my uncle Charles Balague' (pictured in the album) who served in the US Army in the Pacific and participated in the invasion of Okinawa.Dad was a professional photographer who did work as a photographer for major movie studios and pulbicity magazines of the period before his induction.When he was recalled to active duty during the korean conflict, my mother was pregnant with me.

Dad participated in many actions in the Mediterranean Theater, receiving a Bronze Star for the invasion of Florence, Italy.Also there are descriptions or amusing comments on the back of many photos.[Included as captions on the web album.] There are photos of plays that Dad and his colleagues appeared in presented at the Kodiak Community Theater, as well as the playbill. Explored a lot of the back roads and bunkers on an old Kawasaki dirt bike. It was always an adventure commuting from the base to the beach.this was a plane from a squadron that was just flying in to relieve another squadron in the area, as i recall... i believe there were about 11 people aboard, four of whom were killed in the crash...it had been raining and the pilot apparently was not satisfied with his approach and was going to circle around for another approach... (this is really testing my memory, after 54 years)...
