|[Editor's Note: George Villasenor was
a young lad of 16 when he joined the U.S. Navy. His
assignment was to become a photographer...with
eventual assignment to Attu, Aleutian Islands, AK.]
My group was attached to Fleet Air Wing Four and supported, among others, PB Squadron 136 located on Attu. Ensign G. W. Richardson was the commanding officer of the photo lab, Fleet Air Wing Four, and received letters of commendation from PBS 136, Commanding Officer E. F. Hayes. Today Johnnie, my wife, is my commanding officer, and works with me to preserve these photos, and to scan and pass them along for others to enjoy and to appreciate what the Aleutian veteran's of WW-II endured.
Some of these pictures had already been processed, and are provided as they were found. Others I took during my assignment to Attu.
