      Col Wrenn was my father. He died in 1980 from brain cancer. He left behind 5 children. Our mother, Ruth Adkins Wrenn, died in 1987. Did you know him?

        I’m sorry to hear of the death of your father, I set up this blog to gather together images of Naval and Marine Flyers, that are posted in many place all over the Web, trying to gather them into a resource for anyone to use. I hope you are happy for me to post this picture of your father, If there is any information of other images you would like to add to this post, I’d be happy to put it up.

        All the best

    Stuart, I recently sent about 30 pictures to the USMC museum in Quantico. They vary from formal dress uniform shots to plane wrechage to one that I really like, which is the airfield at Cherry Point in NC in 1945. I’d be glad to send them to you, if you like. All of the originals are now with the museum, but I scanned them all and can Email them to you. Let me know what you think. I’ve looked at probably all of the pics you have for pilot, WWII, USMC, and Corsair. I’m a big fan of that era, those planes, and the men that flew them. It’s an awesome web site. Bobby

    My father, Gerald Walden Sander, was a fighter pilot with VMF-314 on IE Shima in 1945. Dad separated from the Marine Corps in 1946 as a Captain with a DFC. Dad passed away 2000. I would be very interested in getting a copy of those pictures.
