  1. I saw Lt. David Rittenhouse’s name in a newsreel in the 1957 movie, “The Wings of Eagles”, which starred John Wayne and was directed by John Ford.

  2. Your article on David Rittenhouse states that he “was commissioned an Ensign, United States Navy, 6 September 1918. He was ordered to sea aboard the battleship USS Wyoming (BB-32), and then USS Idaho (BB-42).” You may find it interesting that “in the summer of 1946, then-Ensign Jimmy Carter, the future President of the United States, came aboard as part of the final crew of the old battleship [USS Wyoming].” Also, you may find it interesting that the USS Idaho “was present during the signing of the surrender documents on 2 September [1945 in Tokyo Bay]”.
