On 1 May 1949 William is listed as Capt. William Sinton, U.S.N. Chief of Naval Air Basic Training, Naval Air Basic Training Command, Pensacola, Florida.

He and my mother were married in Newport, Rhode Island on August 18, 1922.
He went to the Naval Academy and graduatd in 1919, the class of 1920 - they got out early because of WWI. He became a naval aviator shortly thereafter.
In WW2, he comanded the aircraft Carrier USS Ticonderoga after it had been attacked by several kamikazes. He finished the war in Tokyo bay several days after the signing of the treaty with the Japanese.
A slight digression - he went to look for Amelia Earhart in the 1930s
He was transferred to Pensacola in 1946 where he was stationed until he retired in 1949 and became president of one of the Florida National Banks.
