Radio Press News featuring Frank

Cover of the USS LaVallette's Radio Press News, February 24, 1944 "My Gawd Frank! What are you doing in there?"

During World War II on the USS LaVallette, “Frank” would be tracking targets on the round screen of the PPI scope in the Radar Room, identifying incoming planes. Television was not available in 1944. Based on this cartoon, George was way ahead of his time!

Everyone was encouraged to buy bonds to finance the war. Typed on the bottom of this February 24, 1944 cover, crew members Berg, Palmer, Dickenson, Pritchett, Shedd and Johnson were all recognized for being “yesterday’s bond buyers.”
