A member of VSMB-332, Walter A. Huff poses for the camera. Luckily a roll of 35mm color Kodachrome was ready for shooting!
From a continuation of a series of 60+ slids/color photos from this collection, this image captures the virginal quality of the Marine (USMC) aviator. Prepped for war on the SBD/ Marine Douglas SBD Douglas Fighter/Bomber, the Dauntless was a key implement of many Pacific battles.
Looking towards an uncertain future, Walter Huff grins and bares the inevitable future as a Marine dive bomber pilot!

What great colors!
What ever became of Walter A. Huff? Did he survive the war? If not, how did he pass?
Walter did survive the war. He lived on the westcoast and passed away a few years back.
Thanks for the reply:)
That’s my uncle Walter. He had a lot of great stories. Will always be missed.
Did you know about his WWII service?
