Navy Vet's Wartime Movies

In the next few days, we'll have a short obit for Robert C. Woodside, a Navy commander who became an expert in guided missile engineering and later worked as an Army Department personnel specialist. Woodside, 89, died of cancer July 27 at his home in Clarksville.

If you have 10 minutes, you might enjoy listening to him narrate a short film about his experiences a recon pilot. Mostly it's amateur video that shows Navy pilots and seaman training for combat.
