This plane and crew went down at sea during the Cuban Crisis, Nov. 8 1961 on our Eastern Coast. All were lost at sea. My uncle was furthest on right.

Copy and paste below.

TO ALL MY BROTHERS AND SISTERS AND THEIR FAMILIES AND LOVED ONES:

As we get into the 3 and 4 day holiday weekend, let us all remember the true meaning of Memorial Day is not the start of barbecues and swimming pools, but to honor those who gave the ultimate sacrifice while serving his or her country. The National Moment of Remembrance, established by Congress, asks Americans, wherever they are at 3 p.m., local time, on Memorial Day, to pause in an act of national unity for a duration of one minute. The time 3 p.m. was chosen because it is the time when most Americans are enjoying their freedoms on the national holiday. The Moment does not replace traditional Memorial Day events; rather, it is an act of national unity in which all Americans, alone or with family and friends, honor those who died in service to the United States.

God Bless Us All, and have a safe weekend.

My dad told me some unknown info about this that he has found out.  He talked to someone that knew his older brother very well and his brother had told them the anti sub missions were getting more and more dangerous. Guess he said they were getting lower and lower to the water and he was going to cross train into something different in the Navy.

Suits I have no clue.
Thats the crew that was lost in pic. 
Guessing just part of their gear they loaded up to take with them. 
Only 2 bodies were recovered at sea.  My uncle was never found.

Per my mom = The airplane and crew was lost at sea Nov 8. 1961 during the Cuban crisis. Only 2 crew members were found along with small parts of the plane.

Pardon my ignorance here. What is the difference between Memorial Day and Veterans Day? We observe Armistice Day on November 11.

Memorial day is the last Monday in May

Veteran's day is formally November 11 but is sometimes observed on a Monday.

Other than that?

I'll give it a shot with help explaining.

Per Wikipedia.

Memorial Day is a US federal holiday wherein the men and women who died while serving in the United States Armed Forces are remembered.

Veterans Day is an official United States holiday that honors people who have served in the U.S. Armed Forces, also known as veterans.



 Armistice Day (which coincides with Remembrance Day and Veterans Day, public holidays) is commemorated every year on 11 November to mark the armistice signed between the Allies of World War I and Germany at Compiègne, France, for the cessation of hostilities on the Western Front of World War I, which took effect at eleven o'clock in the morning—the "eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month" of 1918.
