We want to share these photographs that show some of the servicemen at the NAS Fort Lauderdale base during WWII. They were sent to us by Jennifer, grand-daughter of Seymour Baumgartner, who was stationed at this naval base working as an aircraft mechanic. He was at NASFL for two years from 1944 to 1945. Thanks for sharing your memories Jennifer and Seymour and also thanks to Mary (Seymour's daughter), for helping us with the image captions! We are proud to honor your service, as it is important for our generation and the ones following-- that we do not forget. We hope you can visit someday! We are sure your grandfather will enjoy himself reminiscing about that period in his life, as we have lots of WWII memorabilia for display at the Museum.
