May 19, 1938 was an historic day for Kitsap County. It marked the first air mail flight from Fleet Field in Bremerton to Boeing Field in Seattle. Bremerton Postmaster Elmer Brandlein and pilot Bob Barrett are shown shaking hands and holding the first bag of air mail to be delivered. This flight was part of the “Roosevelt-proclaimed National Airmail Day.”

While learning about the U.S. Post Office for this story about how the Postal Service may sell its historic building downtown I found the above photo and caption.
