STANLEY W. “SWEDE” VEJTASA The military veteran and flying ace who shot down seven Japanese fighters while on one mission signed this card Signature: “S.W. 'Swede' Vejtasa/ VS-5 VF-10/ USS Yorktown CV-5/ USS Enterprise CV-6”. 3½x2. Stanley W. "Swede" Vejtasa (1914-2013) served aboard the carriers Yorktown and Enterprise in the early phase of World War II, participating in the Battle of the Coral Sea and shooting down 7 Japanese planes during one mission during the Battle of Santa Cruz. This feat was especially noteworthy coming early in the war, when Japan still retained its best trained pilots and a superior aircraft, the Zero. He also helped sink the carrier Shoho, the first flattop lost by either side. Vejtasa scored 10½ kills and earned three Navy Crosses and the Legion of Merit. He remained in the Navy until 1970, commanding the carrier Constellation in the 1960s. Fine condition.
