Notes for Frank Dechant WAGNER

[NOTE: From "The Birth of the Blues"]

On 24 April 1946, Admiral Chester W. Nimitz, Chief of Naval Operations, issued a directive to Vice Admiral Frank Wagner, Chief of Naval Air Training in Pensacola, FL, that a flight exhibition team would be organized within the Naval Air Advanced Training Command. This flight exhibition team would eventually become the "Blue Angels".
