Comments: Looking for anyone who was on the USS Corregidor CVE 58 with my father, Oscar Darrell Hunton. I'm not sure how many years he served, but I have a picture of the ship, and it's dated April 29, 1952. The ship was pulling into the harbor at Brindisi, Italy. My father is deceased now, but would love to hear from anyone that served with him. I believe he was a signalman.

Thank you.
