the singing lieutenant commander

Click image to see large version.
By 1947 Lt Commander Patillo Ainsworth Finlayson (Uncle Pat) was back in the states.  He was relocated to the Orlando Air Force Base and served as Information Officer.  He remained in the Navy until he saw a posting for a job as historian for Warner Robbins AFB.  He remained at Warner Robbins until his retirement in the 1980's.  I'll nail down the exact dates of his time there ~ in time.

This is a great photo. Pat loved to sing.  He sang in the church choirs all his life.  Among his belongings are church bulletins and programs of the many places and events he performed.  He had a grand voice.  All I have to do is think about Uncle Pat and I can clearly hear him singing in my mind.  If you knew him, you can too!
