VICE ADMIRAL VINCENT DE POIX
The carrier pilot, carrier commander and DIA Director signs an ace of hearts
Playing Card signed: "Vincent de Poix/2 kills", 2½x3½. The Ace of Hearts from a standard deck of playing cards, signed in red ink with his aerial victory total ("2 kills") from World War II. Vincent de Poix (b. 1916) was a US Navy fighter pilot aboard the USS Enterprise (and later the Saratoga, 1942-1943) in the Pacific Theater of World War II. Two decades later (1961), he would become the first commander of a new USS Enterprise, the Navy's first nuclear carrier and at the time the largest ship ever built. De Poix held a carrier command in Vietnam, and ended his military service, by now a Vice Admiral, as Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency (1972-1974). De Poix streamlined the DIA in a period of personal cuts, and strengthened its human intelligence capability through the defense attaché system. Fine condition.
