Comments: I'm submitting this information on the behalf of my father-in-law. He has pictures from when his ship was transferring the wounded to the Iowa. Sometime this past Sept 2010' he ran into someone from the Iowa while at the Chase Bank on Hesperia Rd in Victorville Calif. He didn't get a name or other info. But, he remembers this person pushing another person in a wheelchair and getting into a big black SUV. My father-in-law wants to pass on these picture taken from the Thompson while being alongside the Iowa.

Comments: I would like to find someone that was with my dad Monroe Nichols on the battleship Iowa 1944-1946.

He was from a small town Knoxville,AR

My dad never told me much about what he did or saw. He passed away 6 years ago. Today I found some of his things that had to do with his time in the navy. I would like to know more about the war he was a part of. I guess you finaly realize too late that you should of ask questions. I don' know if he would of talked about it or not. I only wished I had asked.

My dad also had 3 brothers in the navy .

Maybe someone would know about them too. Their
names were Guy Nichols And Marvin Nichols

Comments: My dad, JW Stogner, served on Iowa as a Gunner's Mate 3rd Class something for which I have always had great pride. I have been extrordinarily proud of my dad, for having served his country in a time of war. I was an adult before I found out that Korean War vets were treated badly as they came home from war, as I was born about 25 years after it ended. Just wanted to say that I appreciate what you /all/ did for your country. Thank you!

Comments: He is my father who recently passed away this year. For reasons that I cannot explain I was taken way by an ugly divorce. Just as I was getting to know him again he left me for heaven above. I am trying to piece together memories of my father from when I was young. I feel the need to know more about this painful period of his life. I truly do not understand why this war was so aggressively protested. Did these people not realize the soldiers had no choice in going? This makes he terribly mad! At least many of the Americans today are not treating the soldiers in Iraq this way, maybe we learned something. I hope so.

Keywords: Roy Lee Taylor, I believe he was on the Iowa I have that name in my head. If I remember correctly and there is a 50 50 chance I may be wrong ro right he was a frog man.
