LtCdr Wayne Robert Cheal USN

XO VF-53 USS Phillippine Sea 1954

Born 8 June 1921. Enlisted in the Navy 10 July 1941. He is listed in 1949 as "AvXR" is that Aviator in the Navy Reserve? Made Lieutenant 1 March 1945. I assume he saw combat in WW2.

Any help gratefully accepted.

Lt (jg) Wayne R. Cheal is among the personnel of VF-81 on 1 Oct 1944. See https://catalog.archives.gov/id/134376652?objectPage=8

Also see https://catalog.archives.gov/id/139945262?objectPage=24 when involved in a barrier crash on the USS Wasp near Luzon on 10 Dec 1944. .

Good man! Many thanks. Another part of my jigsaw to understand the characters of CVG5 in 1953-55.
