I guess your dad was part of the relief crew that boarded PC 1128 in August of that year. A good many left the ship in August and headed home. I have the picture of the celebration when they shot the plane down. Shows them cutting into a big sheet cake on the fantail of the ship. I've got a few pictures of some of the men while stationed at Carter City. That was where the group photo was taken. I'm lucky that mom kept a scrapbook with dad's letters and from the postmarks have been able to trace his locations while in the Navy. Not much information in the letters other than he was homesick and wanted to come home.
