|Butch O'Hare In Cockpit|
The story accompanying this photo was rather brief, but it says he shot down five Japanese planes, and was awarded the Medal Of Honor; in my book, any M.O.H. recipient deserves an airport named after them; (or maybe even an aircraft carrier ?)
Bear with me on this, but I think it said this all happened in 1942; then, sadly, Butch O'Hare was killed in action in 1943.
I'm going to go back and see if I can find out a few more details.
