W. Parker Seeley Jr. '54

(1937–    )

My father was an Army pilot and Air Corps flight instructor at Kelly Field in Texas in WWI, and he arrived in France a few days after the Armistice; my father-in-law was a doctor who went in with the Seabees on a number of the Pacific Islands in WWII.

I can remember WWII in Bridgeport, Conn.— a prime bombing or submarine target on the Germany High Command “Grand List” because of the huge war-effort manufacturing done [there]—particularly gas and food rationing. After rationing of food stopped I never have touched another gram of Spam!
