FRANK H. HENDERSON, JR., LT, USN
Frank Henderson, Jr. '37
Date of birth: January 2, 1915
Date of death: May 18, 1942
From the 1937 Lucky Bag:
Frank was lost when the PBY-5 Catalina he was piloting crashed on Hawaii on May 18, 1942. Nine of his crew were also killed in the crash.
Frank was promoted to LTJG on June 3, 1940; on December 2, 1940 he was designated naval aviator #6944. (Information from Richard Leonard, naval aviation historian.)
Frank's wife and son arrived in California in July 1941 after spending "the last year" in Honolulu. Quite possible that it was the last time they saw Frank.
