Another Naval History Website honoring the Ship and Crew of the U.S.S. Hancock (CVA-19).. and the OA/OP Division's Photo Lab in particular (1953-1956), and provided to the World Wide Web by Richard A. Kirsch, PH3, USN (Retired).

Pictured in this photo is the Photo Lab at a Party in Oakland, California in 1954. Rich is third from right, top row, with a Merachino Cherry in his mouth.

The Life of the Party then- he continues to have a great outlook on life and enjoyes every minute of it - mostly with his family as well as playing Golf... Learn more about Rich by reading his Biography to the Left.
