Dealey Plaza


Recommended Posts

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.)
