(15) Master Chief Warren Wolfgram spent 31 years in the Navy, mostly serving on Carriers and Squadrons. He was a great guy to know; had a great sense of humor, and the reason why I joined the Airdale Navy myself. He was my Godfather, and namesake.

Warren suffered from terminal cancer and died 7 April 1976.

Larry Vergin, AO3, USN - GM Division, USS Hancock CVA-19, served aboard from '65 - '68.

Larry was one of my best friends. He came home from working the mid shift at the Norge plant; went to bed and never woke up. Wasn't sick. The Lord just sent him PCS Orders for the most exalted tour of duty. God bless his memory.

(12) Scott was my brother and I want to remember him here. He died in 1989 of lung cancer at the age of 48. Although he had a short life, he managed to fill it to overflowing. He loved life and his trade. He was a much sought after Precision Sheetmetal Mechanic in the San Fernando Valley of southern California. He had many friends who miss him. I always hoped to be one of them.

(8) Dedicated to Richard Alonzo Jaccard, Ens, USNR
1 July 1918 - 15 Sept 1942

"Richard A. Jaccard, a Kansas man. tall, lean, humorous. Nickname Dick. He was flying a Dauntless dive bomber, at Midway in Scouting Six squadron, off ENTERPRISE, CV 6 at Midway Battle. He was flying in a 4-plane section led by LT Earl GALLAGHER, CO, of Scouting Six. (Scouts and Bombers flew the same plane and apparently remnants were interchanged after Midway to VB-6). This was the evening strike from ENTERPRISE. GALLAGHER and second plane dived on Hiryu, Japanese carrier, and missed. Hiryu had turned shaprply. Jaccard, third man down, scored near the bow. (I can assume that it was this action in which he received the Navy Cross). He was to damage Hiryu who had a deck ready to launch her few remaining aircraft.

"With ENTERPRISE in for repairs, remnants of VB-6, 12 planes, pilots, were sent to Efate, New Hebrides as VB-6. They were to operate with a Marine fighting squadron there ashore.

A call came from WASP CV-7 for 4 bombing planes, pilots. Jaccard lost the draw and was sent to WASP.

While supporting the Guadalcanal campaign from the carrier, ENS. JACCARD was asleep in his bunk when the torpedo hits obliterated the officers' quarters and was killed when WASP was sunk 15 September 1942."


The President of the United States takes pleasure in presenting the Navy Cross to Richard Alonzo Jaccard (0-099665), Ensign, U.S. Navy (Reserve), for extraordinary heroism in operations against the enemy while serving as Pilot of a carrier- based Navy Scouting Plane of Scouting Squadron SIX (VS-6), embarked from the U.S.S. ENTERPRISE (CV-6), during the "Air Battle of Midway," against enemy Japanese forces on 4 - 6 June 1942. Participating in a devastating assault against a Japanese invasion fleet, Ensign Jaccard, with fortitude and resolute devotion to duty, pressed home his attacks in the face of a formidable barrage of anti-aircraft fire and fierce fighter opposition. His gallant perseverance and utter disregard for his own personal safety were important contributing factors to the success achieved by our forces and were in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.

(7) Remembering Captain Herschel A. Pahl, USN (Deceased)
15 April 1920 - 17 October 2010

Captain Pahl lived an honorable life of 90 years, 6 months and 2 days. He was a Naval Mustang and Aviator who flew with legendary "Butch" O'Hare's VF-6 in WWII, and then served 31 years at various duty stations around the globe.

The world lost a true Naval Hero in Hersch Pahl. There are few of these great men still with us, as over 2000 of them pass everyday. Hersch passed from this scene on 17 October 2010 and left an indelible mark on the lives of those he touched.

He lived his life well, and died well. His life was a life of duty, honor and commitment. It is only fitting that I remember him here. May he rest in Eternal Peace.

Lest we forget,
Captain Herschel A. Pahl,
Hand Salute…

Jake Jaccard, YN3, USNR-R '61-'67
We both are USS Hancock CV/CVA-19 Sailors still.


Capt Hersch Pahl's devoted wife Bonnie, also 90 years old, followed Hersch in death 2 1/2 months later, passing away quietly in her sleep, to join her beloved husband. They were married for 67 years, 5 months and 2 days.
