Rolland Shea Papers

 Collection
Identifier: A2015.28
Mr. Shea is a former naval aviator and flew with VA-95 during the Intrepid’s first Vietnam War cruise. Shea’s career included a tour of duty where he was responsible for the training of South Vietnamese pilots on the A-1 Skyraider. This collection centers on that duty. This is a seldom told story and the collection helps tell it in great detail with archives and photographs. Though not a direct Intrepid story, the collection is worthwhile to keep, not only due to the connection with Shea but for preserving this little known history of the Vietnam War.
