Comments: I'm trying to research where my dad was during WW11. His name was Earl FJ Oncale. Most people called him Jack. I know he was on the Horace A Bass. Not sure of the exact date. I know he was discharged June 1 1946. Does anyone remember him?

I didn't join the Navy and was nervous as hell.
Then the captain addressed the 71 Marines he was to take from SoCal to Yokohama---leading a convoy.
Saw the captain was a Mustang and immediately felt better. It was a rocky road and we went beyond the engineering point of no return a couple of times. But I'm still here and mighty grateful to that captain for hs seamanship.

Comments: The History Museum and Historical Society of Western Virginia is seeking the assistance of Navy veterans, as well as Marine Corps veterans, who served aboard the USS Horace A. Bass APD-124.

The Bass was a ship named in honor of Horace A. Bass, Jr. of Roanoke, Virginia, who served in the U.S. Navy as a aviation pilot in Fighter Squadron 3 (VF-3) during WW2. He was awarded the Navy Cross posthumously for his actions during Midway. He was reported MIA during the Battle of East Solomon Islands 24 August 1942, and then presumed dead a year later.

The APD-124 was named in his honor in 1944, and served both in WW2 and the Korean War.

The Museum seeks any information about the ship for its current exhibit, "Ships and Shipmates," about the ships named "Roanoke," and a gallery featuring local Roanoke citizens who served, or are currently serving, in the U.S. Navy. The exhibit will be on display for 3 years.

Items such as photos or other memorabilia of the ship would be appreciated, as well as written memoirs or stories of their time aboard the Bass.

If you can help, contact or e-mail the Museum, any assistance would be deeply appreciated.

Sincerely,
