I noticed Hurricane Hunters listed on your Reunions page in the Winter issue. My deceased husband was a member of Meteorological Squadron Three when it was home-based in Opa-Locka, Florida, 1947-48. He flew many ofthese missions.

While looking over an old picture album I found this picture taken in the Dominican Republic along with the names of the flyers. Thought you might find it of interest.

Thank you for your wonderful magazine. As a Navy Widow at age 85 I thoroughly enjoy it!
