This photo was Eddie Saboo prior to going to the White House to train the police force and secret service personnel. (I have a letter from the White House thanks him for the training he provided.)
|I was not sure how much you want to
hear and I did not want to prattle
on about something you may not be interested in. So, on the photos I sent; the one of my Dad standing with the medals were awarded for the Atlantic Fleet Belt, Pacific Fleet Belt and I am not surewhich is which, but the box in his hand is full of various medals also. The article about "Shaboo Training the Seabees" (I hope you were able to read it, if not let me know and I'll either type it out or try faxing it to you.) This was prior to going to the White House to train the police force and secret service personnel. (I have a letter from the White House thanks him for the training he provided.) Now, the one of Ernie Pyle was taken in Saipan and the weapon was Not his, he was not allow to carry a weapon as a foreign war correspondent. One of the guy in my Dad's squad handed him the weapon. I also hoped you could make out the inscription at the lower right corner. I you can not, of course I know it by heart "To Eddie Shaboo the greatest little Jap fighter this Seabe Correspondent ever met." The photo of the three men, my Dad was on the right, the other two people were men in his squad, I never know their names.
Anyway, I wish I could send you the whole album, so you could peruse. I also have an article about Tom Mix betting 10,000 on Dad to pin 3 heavyweights in 15 minutes. He did and Tom Mix gave him a diamond ring. Hoot Gibson's name also is in that article. He dated Ida Lapino's sister also at one time and I have a photo of her and him.
He did have a colorful past. Well, I'm at work and my supervisor was just checking on me. So I must close for now. Please stay in contact so I know how things are going with your write-up. OK.
