Intelligence Staff Photo

I recently located the above photograph that was labeled as the USTDC Intelligence Staff. I believe the shot was taken at the main entrance to TDC, somewhere between 1957 and 1959. The size of the group suggests to me that it may include more than just the J-2 folks, but perhaps someone who was there at the time can clarify that.

One of the individuals in the photo is LT Tom Hahn, who is in the center of the third (standing) row, behind another naval officer who is wearing glasses. Lieutenant Hahn, a Native American, had a remarkable military career, retiring from the Navy as a Captain in June, 1972. You can find a summary of his military career, with many great photos here.

For more information about the history of the Lenape-Delaware, be sure to visit this site as well.

Many thanks to Chris Hahn, Tom's son, for sharing information about his dad and the tribal history.

If any of you recognize other faces in this photograph and have information you could share about them, please let me know.
