I thought everyone might like this. I work 1 block from this, I pass it everyday and decided to share this with the group here.
From Left to Right- 1 Vega Ventura, 2 SBD's, 1 Helldiver, and 1 Wildcat. On the lower left is the Deland naval air station and an unnamed sailor.

Looking good - thanks for sharing.

I try to imagine something similar at my place - but a wall mural with a u-boat, a pair of Me-109s, a Stuka and a Tiger tank won't happen for obvious reasons

I have driven past this a few times, but I did not know the story behind it until now. Thanks for posting.
