Fullbore Friday

A little something different today. While we cover the bold face items for FbF - it is rare that we get the opporunity to get a more personal view of what happens every day in the middle of huge events.

Here is CDR Bob Woodside, USN (Ret) as he narrates some 8mm color video he took during what sure looks like WWII flying float planes off the
USS PROVIDENCE (CL-82). It looks like a OS2U-3 Kingfisher.

In addition, Bob was founder of the Naval Air Station Jacksonville Yacht Club in 1956 and passed away, recently. He was 89.

He was an avid sailor and Coach of the Naval Academy Sailing Team. The people we walk by at the NEX ..... and don't even know.

Sorry I missed you CDR Woodside.
