My Dad served aboard the USS Antietam from 1944 to 1946. Today I found a photo of Hellcats on the deck of the Antietam.
My Dad was a good guy, and I sure miss him. He’s been gone since 2009. He would love riding in this Hellcat I bought, and I can hear his laugh that would surely happen when I goosed it. When I first got the car, I was out driving it and turned on a road to his house, thinking, oh man I need to go show this to him! But then I remembered, I couldn’t. Funny how that type of thing still happens sometimes, even after 14 years. I had a good Dad.
