Comments: My uncle Herbert A. Lanier served on the USS Bataan during early 1950's. I am producing scrapbooks in honor of my 6 uncles in one family who all served their country. Uncle Herbert passed away in 1997 and we have very little contact with his surviving family. I would be so honored to have any pictures, stories, information, or contact with anyone who might have known of him or his service on the USS Bataan during these years and the Korean War. Any help would be greatly appreciated. All 6 brothers' pictures will be hung in our County's Veteran's Museum with an accompanying notebook to portray each brothers' years of service. I am so sad that at the moment Uncle Herbert's page is empty. Please help if you can. Thank you.

Comments: My father served on the USS Bataan CVL 29 I believe from 1950-53. His
name was John Smith, and was also known by the names "Jack" and "Mort."
He loved his service on the Bataan. Back in 2000, I found on the Internet
an official Navy cap with the USS Bataan CVL 29 on it and gave it to him
for Xmas. He almost cried and proudly wore that hat until the day he died
in April 2006.

I'm wondering if anyone can provide some stories or info on the role the
Bataan's played in the Korean War.

Thanks very much for your time.

Comments: My father was on the Bataan in Korea in the early 50's, he passed away in 76' we were unable to locate anything from his Naval Service, we are praying that someone may have photos/information/stories from this time era and would so appreciate anything anyone would have that we can obtain to place in the scrapbook that I am currently working on, this became so improtant to me when I started working w/ the VA and having the honor of hearing the stories and helping to take care of our Veterans..I realized how little I knew of my fathers time in the Navy, hoping that I will be able to learn more about his life.
I thank you and God Bless our Veterans.

has her entering New York harbor on October 17,1945.
There was a Presidential Review by President Truman
aboard USS RENSHAW where he was saluted by the carriers, MIDWAY, ENTERPRISE and MONTEREY. The BATAAN
left New York, as she was assigned to another city.
Where was she on Saturday, October 27, 1945?
