Kenneth M. McLaren

USS West Virginia

I came across your web site the other day while searching for a picture of the West Virginia to print out for my father. His name is Kenneth M. McLaren and he was stationed on the WeeVee right after graduating from the Naval Academy in l923. He's now 99 years old and has severe short term memory loss, but can still remember being on the ship as an ensign. One vivid memory is being catapulted off the ship in an airplane - must have been a scary event for him to remember all this time! Do you know of any others who served who are now almost l00 years old?
