POSTMASTER ON U.S.S. CURTISS @ PEARL HARBOR

Comments: My father, William Oscar Easley, was the Postmaster on the U.S.S. Curtiss when it was attacked in Pearl Harbor. He was off ship dropping off mail/picking up mail when the attack occurred, but hurriedly returned to the ship.
I am looking for anyone who might have photos of the Post Office on-board. My dad used to have a photo taken of him in the small post office, but it has been misplaced. In the photo, he was surrounded by stacks of mail and packages of the crew members.
I attended the U.S.S. Curtiss reunion in San Francisco in 2007 and met one man who remembered my dad, who also went by the name Bill Easley. He said that my dad was very kind to crew members who came to the Post Office but had no waiting mail. He likened my dad to a bartender, talking to his lonely customers and trying to cheer them up. I thought that was a nice memory.
My dad died of cancer in 1977 at the age of 62. I believe his rank was Chief.

Comments: I am looking for people who knew my dad. I am trying to find out where he served, personal stories or those who may have worked with him. I know his dates of Navy service were May 1948 to May 1957 He was on the USS Curtiss for at least some of his service possible all I don't know. I know he was involved in Operation MIKI off the Hawaii islands from a newspaper article and he did Korean war service. I believe he was there for the atomic tests in the bikini islands as well. Dad went to Texas and served in the National Guard 49th infantry until he passed away in Dec 1971.... anything would help...... Oh he was a machinist mate/fireman while on the USS Curtiss.

Thanks Jim Danner

Unfortunatley, he is suffering from a disease called ATAXIA, which effects your memory and motor coordination. He believes this is a result of the testing and adverse wind conditions that blew fallout onto the ship. He tells me that at the time they ordered everyone to ramain below for a few days after it occurred. The VA in Tucson does not want to pursue. I would appreciate hearing from anyone knowing of a similar situation or remembers my dad.

She's asking a low price of just $5.00, and I know the ship has a colorful history, so thought I'd mention this.
At eBay.com, the item # is 2190146356, and the auction ends in only about 1 day, 14 hours. If you know any interested people, please check this rare bargain out.

Comments: My father, who died in 1995, served aboard the USS Curtiss when he was in the Navy during World War II. Recently, I found a picture of his ship. At the bottom, I think it says: USS CURTISS (V-4), 19 DEC 1945 At Whangpoo River, Shanghai China. Anybody out there still, that was on it then, or related to someone who was? My dad's name was Charles Johnson. Alot of people called him Charlie. I believe he was a cook in the galley and it was this ship he was on that was hit by a kamakazie. I remember him talking about having to go into Guam to have it repaired, I think. He also talked about being able to see his brother while in Guam. His brother, Richard Johnson, was in the Army at the same time my dad was in the Navy.

Just curious,
