The year 1965 found Estes in Southeast Asia once more for her second Vietnam deployment, under the command of CAPT Albert K. (Bert) Earnest, USN ( Note 5).
Note 5: ENS Albert K. (Bert) Earnest, USN, had never flown out of sight of land when he, in company with five other brand_new Grumman TBF's headed for Midway 1 June 1942. Too late to accompany the carrier USS Hornet(CV_8), the six newcomers planned to fly into battle from that island. In the ensuing Battle of Midway, Hornet-based Torpedo Squadron Eight paid an enormous price: Only ENS George Gay of the 15 TBD (old and obsolescent torpedo bomber) pilots flying from the Hornet survived the day; of the six TBF's flying from Midway, only Bert Earnest and Harry Ferrier (Earnest's radioman and tunnel gunner) survived, although severely wounded in several attacks by angry Zeros. A more complete account of CAPT Earnest's ordeal may be found in EARNEST, CAPT ALBERT K. USN (RET) AND FERRIER, CDR HARRY USN (RET). Avengers at Midway. Foundation Magazine _ The Naval Aviation Museum. (800) 327_5002. Pensacola. Spring 1996. Albert K. Earnest

It has come to my attention that Al and Mary Lou (BB) Hall enjoy their winters in Mexico.
Albert Earnest (CAPT.), how the battle evolved and how they landed their badly damaged TBM back on Midway Island. Their third crewmember had been killed in action.
