A summary of how it all started. In 1942 A Lieutenant named E.S Caldwell from the Naval Operations office in Washington wrote Walt Disney a letter requesting an emblem design for his new fleet "mosquito boats". Days later a new emblem (see above) arrived from Walt Disney that pictured a little mosquito carrying a torpedo coasting over the water. Soon the Navy and the Army requested emblems from Walt Disney as well.Disney produced many more emblems since. See the rest of the story at the main page.
