Comments: I am the Grandson of a Gunners mate on the USS Boyd. My grandfather served from 1950-1954. He has been having health issues this past year and I want to do something to cheer him up a bit. Im hoping I can find somebody that served those same years and set something up where they can communicate. Any help will be much appreciated.
