2007. The Navy was good too my dad he used the GI Bill

Not bad for the son of a South Georgia Sharecropper.

Comments: I was aboard the Bass when she was hit in Wansan harbor Korea (don't know the date (52???)). She was direct hit on torpedo deck. Several members standing around me were injured pretty bad. I don't remember any names. One member had a severe foot/leg injury. I helped a corpman named "Ski" take the wounded to the 2nd Div latrine area and administered 1st aid. I've wondered many times who they were and their current status. 52years ago is a long time. There was a Chief torpedoman Miller aboard at the time and a Chief Boatswain Boyle. Would like to hear from anyone who remembers this incident. I was a 17yr old BMSN at that time working in the Chiefs mess. Thank you.

Keywords: 1952-1954 shipmates, 1st Div, Deck force crew members or Gunnery personnel in 1st Div.
