Lieutenant (junior grade) Frank Green

Lieutenant (junior grade) Frank Green was also part of the Cactus Air Force.

He is in front row on the left next to Nesbitt who is sitting. I could not find more information if he survived the war which in a way is good news. The only thing I could find was this…

It might be Lieutenant (junior grade) Frank Green.

This is part of his obituary…

In 1941 he graduated from Whitman College where he made lifelong friends. He enjoyed attending several reunions at Whitman. Frank enlisted in the Navy in 1941. After receiving his wings he trained pilots at Corpus Christi TX for the growing Pacific fleet. He was a carrier pilot and landing signal officer on the aircraft carrier Belleau Wood, in Iwo Jima and Okinawa.

Update

A comment…

I think the Frank Green you’re looking for is Frank O. Green, a native of St. Louis, who was a career naval aviator (1939-60). Before joining the navy he attended Southern Illinois University, where I work in the archives. He appears in several accounts of the battle for Guadalcanal in 1942. He was born on March 22, 1918, a hundred years ago tomorrow as I write this, and died April 22, 2007 in Arizona.
