    Hello everyone. Just an obligatory intro post to a new message board. If you're interested in a little background here it goes:

    My name is Patrick
    I'm married with no kids
    I'm from Ohio, lived in NYC, currently in Michigan
    My interest in history is mostly in US Naval, but also includes general WWII, US politics, and pretty much mil his in general.
    I've worked in retail most of my life. While in NYC, I volunteered as a docent aboard USS Intrepid CV-11.

    Thanks for taking a second to say hi. Have a good day.

    I've got a bunch of photos, but nothing behind the scenes, really. The deck below the hanger has lockers and break rooms for the volunteers and workers. Most of the deck directly above (where the pilot ready rooms would be) have been converted to office space. They've only got one WWII aircraft, a TBM Avenger. I was told there were full-size replicas of a F6F and a SB2C, but they were sold for space for actual aircraft.
