My name is Steve Linen and I am the second son of Charles J. Linen. I was so surprised to see the photo of VMB 423 Squadron (posed in front of aircraft tail number 21}. He is standing in the back row, fourth from the right. I know it is him because, while the image on the internet does not allow for you to make out faces, I have the very same photo that we have hanging on our wall in memory of dad. I also have is flight jacket with the seahorse insignia. After the war, Dad was recalled for the Korean Conflict and during that time he flew R4Q's and R5D's. He discharged in January 1956. Dad passed away on July 22, 1973. He would be so proud to know that his photo was posted on the internet. My best to all and have a great reunion. Stephen M. Linen, MSgt, USAF Ret.
