I have been researching a WWII South Pacific Naval unit (VC-38) for a few years now. I need help on locating the photographer of VC-38 - a PHOM First Class John Franklin McKenna. I believe he was born in 1907 and died in 1962. I am trying to locate any information on his life and family (sons and daughters). He was originally from West Virginia, but lived in Sacramento, California after WWII. He might have been married to Gladys B Mitchell on 17 May 1952 in LA, CA.

A bombing mission was photographed by McKenna in 1943 (attached)

Any information or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you
