I thought you NIMITZ (and FREEMAN and HENKE and LABERN) researchers might be interested in a line I found today in a letter from my sister to my mother (written. in October 1945). My sister was a newlywed then and her husband was in the Navy band in Washington, D.C. This letter was mailed at Washington, D.C. 27 on October 4, 1945. She wrote: "Floyd has to march in the Navy Day Parade honoring Nimitz and Hulsey. Will be quite a crowd Fri. Gov't employees will get off for 3 hours. He's pretty beat down tonight from rehearsing." He wrote: "I'm afraid your son [-in-law] doesn't feel much like writing a long letter tonite. We played + marched on the field for four hrs. today + then had to play for a short ceremony right after school. Oh well. Nothing a good night's sleep won't cure."

Would that be Chester William Gillespie (1885-1966) who was born at Fredericksbury in Gillespie Co. TX, or Chester William Gillespie, Jr. (b about 1916, d 2002)? I see now that he was the older man (according to http://worldconnect.rootsweb.ancestry.com/cgi-bin/igm.cgi?op...
P.S. Who was Hulsey?
