"The Father of the SEALS" is shown in shorts and T-shirt, at his
Photograph signed: "Roy Boehm/Godfather of the/Navy Seals".
Color, 10x8. 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. Fine condition.
