David McCampbell, shown here as the Wasp’s Landing Signal Officer, later became the United States Navy's all-time leading flying ace with 34 aerial victories.

I ‘d read with a great deal of interest “The Epic Hunt for a Lost World War II Aircraft Carrier” by British author Ed Caesar in the New York Times Magazine of March 13. It described the discovery of USS Wasp at the bottom of the Coral Sea, not far from Guadalcanal. As I had served in Wasp before she left on her fatal voyage for the Southwest Pacific, I was very much interested.
