    Memories and Tributes

  • John McKenna provides: Cole was a pilot on our VFP-62 Det 33-60 60-61 Med cruise, USS Intrepid with Crusaders.

  • (6/2/16) I remember wearing a POW bracelet with Cole Black's name on it when I was in high school. I am now 60 years old and I still remembered his name. Was happy to find more info about him on the internet.
