        It was the navy that developed the AWACS concept at the end of World War II, using Avenger light bombers equipped with radar to control large carrier strikes. These days each American aircraft carrier has four E-2s, and the U.S. Navy has a total fleet of about 70 E-2s.   The navy would only reactivate one of the four (USS New Jersey) for the Vietnam War, and only in partial service. In the late s and early s, the United States disposed of the remaining thirteen battleships in its inventory. The Iowas nevertheless survived, and were finally reactivated (and modernized) in the s.

        Built to duel Japan in World War II, in fact, battleships were recommissioned for the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and the Cold War. The last returned to action in The Iowa class sat in mothballs for about three decades after Korea (except for USS New Jersey, which returned to duty briefly during the Vietnam War).   Vejtasa didn't start out flying fighters. Early in , he flew the SBD Dauntless and saw action during the Battle of the Coral Sea. On May 7, , he took part in the attack on the light carrier Shoho, helping put that ship on the bottom. He received the Navy Cross for his part in that attack.
