Anyone know about naval aviators serving in 90th Bomb group?

Post by Nigel » 18 Sep 2020 2055

Thanks to some contributors on this board, I've been able learn extensively about my wife's uncle, 2nd Lt Joseph Horgan. However, there is a single mystery that I can't find information about: I have a photo portrait of him, but he is wearing a white US naval aviator cadet uniform.

I'm pretty much 100% convinced it's a US navy uniform (based on on cap type, emblem, collar, pocket location, epaulet, etc, and indeed it is identical to the photo portrait of George H W Bush: https://www.history.navy.mil/content/hi ... 815995.jpg).

I'm assuming a naval uniform cannot be worn unless you are in the US Navy. Did the 90th Bomb group receive transferred US Navy aviators? Does anyone know anything about this?
