Inscribed color photo in dress uniform, adding the SEAL motto, "The
only easy day was yesterday."
Photograph inscribed and signed: "To/Del/The only easy/day was
yesterday/Roy Boehm/". Color, 8x10. 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. "The only easy day was yesterday" is a SEAL motto.
