Letter to “Tail Hook Association”
August 8, 1991
I can't challenge George [Bush] for first place as being the youngest designated Naval Aviator, but it looks like I have a pretty solid claim to third place (still in the money).
I am enclosing a copy of my N.A. card showing I was 19 years and 6 months old (exactly). I was a flying midshipman under the Holloway plan.
Really enjoy the "Hook".
/s/ W. L. Hembree
