Inscribed color photo, shown in dress uniform with his wife
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To/Del/Best Wishes/from/Roy & Susan/Boehm/". Color, 8x10. Accompanied by unsigned copy of his printed calling card. Roy Boehm (1924-2008) was a US Navy diver during World War II, participating in many of the major Pacific battles. In the 1950s, he trained in demolition, and tested underwater equipment. In May 1961, President Kennedy called for creation of Navy commando units, and the first team of SEALS (Sea, Air and Land Teams) was formed that December, with Boehm as leader of Seal Team Two. He saw action again in Korea and Vietnam, earning the moniker "Father of the Navy SEALS". Boehm did not live to see his SEALS kill Osama Bin Laden, but his efforts helped make that triumph possible. Adhesive residue on front (not seen head on). Corners lightly worn. Otherwise, fine condition.
