Kathleen Collins Posted June 13, 2007 Share Posted June 13, 2007 (edited) Ever wonder whom Dealey Plaza is named after? Dealey was a military man who struck down 5 Japanese crafts in one night during WWII. You can read about him here: http://www.valoratsea.com/dealey.htm Name: Samuel David Dealey Rank and Branch: Commander, U.S. Navy Born: 13 December 1906, Dallas Texas Other Navy Awards: Navy Cross with three gold stars, Silver Star Medal Citation: For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty as commanding officer of the USS Harder during her fifth war patrol in Japanese controlled waters. See his picture below. (He reminds me a little of Black Jack Bouvier.) Kathy Edited June 13, 2007 by Kathleen Collins Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
