Comments: I'm trying to find my biological father. In 1965 my
mother was on the ship USS GEN. Wm Mitchell TAP-114 for
2 weeks from California going to Okinawa, and met this
man. She said he was a Lt. although the picture was
taken at his boot camp so there is no rank yet. She
said that his name was Tom Brown. (not sure if she was
being honest about his name) and that he had no idea,
she ended up pregnant as a result of their..."meeting".
I am now 45 and wanting to connect with him. One of my
daughters looks just like him. My moms (recently
deceased) name was Deloris Snyder. Please if anyone
knows him or can guide me to a better way to go about
finding him, let me know. My email is
jefjen123@comcast.net . thank you for taking time for
me.

I found this in

Comments: AP-114. General William Mitchell. I am looking for the ships logbook. I am particularly interested in the time period January 1, 1949, to December 31, 1954. My now deceased brother in law was a USMC who was stationed on Guam when the Korean War began. June 25, 1950.

He had come to Guam by ship from San Francisco. He was then transported by ship to South Korea. Wounded, he was later returned to the US via ship.

I know one of those trips was made on the USS General William Mitchell. My surviving sister and his surviving children would like to know this information. Can anyone direct me to a site where I could find the ships record of movement? Thank You. Don White, Jacksonville, FL

Comments: I sailed aboard the Funston in late 1946 on her first voyage transporting dependents to Korea.The ship broke down almost immediately on departure and was towed back into Seattle. We broke down again near Japan but were able to limp into port in Inchon. The captain died on the voyage and was stored in the deep freeze. All in all, quite an adventure for an eight year old boy. I'm trying to lock down the exact dates of departure from Seattle and arrival in Inchon.

Comments: My fathers active duty was in the early 1950's. He came home in 1955. He left Japan on April 1st (His Birthday)went through Formosa and Okinawa then back to San Fran. He caught a ride with a few fellows to Los Angles then caught a bus back to PHX, Arizona. He then caught another bus to Winslow then caught a ride with the mail man back to the Navajo Rez.to Teesto. From there he waked about 10 miles to his mothers house up on the mountain. Big suprise for everyone in the family that day. My father later reinlisted in the Army agin a few years later due to the lack of jobs. He was later discharged in 1959. He lost a toe to frostbite in Germany. He was a guard at a prison for one of Hitlers men, I do not remember his name. When my father was discharged it was because of T.B. in the leg, the non infectious kind. If you remember my father please contact us, or if you have any memories to share. A Daughter of an Army Vet. Thank you and Have a Great Life.

Comments: My husband and I,the then Airman 1st class Donald M.Patterson sailed 50yrs ago from Portsmouth, England on the Darby April 1st to New York. If there is anyone who remembers this trip I am looking for more details of Port of entry, could have been Brooklyn or Manhatten Beach, Don's trunk has Manhatten Beach stamped on it. Also, anyone with memories to share of this trip. I remember one young woman who shared the cabin was pregnant at that time, we were all sea sick, but she was more so. I traded bunks with her so she would be more comfortable on the bottom one. Seemed like we were very close to the engine room, very loud, difficult to sleep. We were an extra day on the ship because of a very bad storm and the ship turned around to help another ship in distress, another ship was able to give rescue help so we went on our way. During the storm at meal time everything went flying off the table and our waiter hit against the side of the ship breaking his arm, not very pleasant. When the men were able to be with their wives we played card games of 'Crazy 8' and 'Hearts', these were new games to me. I am writing out my voyage to the USA for my children and grandchildren, so any information would be appreciated. Thank you, Margaret
