Comments: My father, George Babao Requina, was a member of the US Navy starting in November 1954.

I understand he took USS Antares AK258 that travelled to Europe, Asia, Africa, Middle East, South America and the whole of America.

I just would like to know what benefits are due him. He is past 65 now.

I hope somebody could help me with this.

I trully appreciate any response...

Thank you very much,

Edith
