Comments: My father has got his case re-opened by VA and they will pay his disability if he has a doctor to sign this paper stating that he got the rash and cancer from Korea. The VA knows that there is no way that a doctor will sign anything with the repercussions they could face in today’s society. If anyone can help my father get the signature he needs to get the disability that the military promised him over fifty years ago when he gave his all for his country to protect our and freedom but now there is no one to protect his. Please help me with my father's disability claim, he would not want it if it was not his and I would not help pursue it for him if the Navy would not have said that he was getting the disability when he was discharged. Thank you very much. Kelly Bryan

Comments: Searching for anyone who knew Dennis M. Ero Sr. He served on the USS Lowry during Vietnam. Anyone who can give me any good info (stories, memories etc) it'd be greatly appreciated. We haven't spoken with each other in quite a few years and I'd like to have a few things to show him that I am interested in preserving his military stories when I do see him again...I'm his only Son and still proudly serving in the US Air Force Reserves after 10 years with Air Force Special Operations...

Comments: My father, Emmett L. Bryan, was in Korea on the USS Lowery and has a had a lot of trouble with a rash on his body, doctors don't know what it is and he has had a very hard time trying to get the VA to give him a disability on it. My father is 70 years old, he still has to work and this rash really bothers him it crackes his skin, all over blisters. He needs someone who was on that ship to talk to, he deal with the bombs and artillary, he doesn't know if anyone eles has it or not. I don't know how much time my father has on this earth but it would be nice to know he could spend it the way he wanted to not having to bother with this rash and working he spent his time serving his country and he should get what he deserves for it. Pleasr e-mail me or call him at (870)295-4427. Thank you Kelly Bryan KBryan@hotmail.com

Comments: I am researching the Wadsworth, the Lowry, and its men because my Grandfather served on them in 1942 - 45. He is in the latter stages of Alzheimer's and I want to tell his story while he can still read it and be proud. He loves to tell its stories. If there is ANY info you can give me I would appreciate it. He is unable to give me info beyond his experiences and that he was on the Wadsworth in 42, he has many stories of the planes coming in on them. I am hoping to find someone who knew him. He was called "Lunny" because his last name was Lundblad. He remembers the man who called him that but can't remember his name. Whoever it was used to ask him, "What's the good word?" And he would reply with whatever biblical reference he had for the day. He was often the brunt of jokes as he had decided to become a minister when he got off the ship because of the times his life was spared. By the way, he did and he did amazing things. His life was spared three times while on the Wadsworth. So he spent most of his time reading and memorizing the bible.
He recalls the Captain of the Lowry at the end of the war saying, "Full speed ahead to San Fransisco." He says everyone went crazy!
If you have anything to share about this ship and the experiences you have learned about, or web sites that would be helpful I'd appreciate it!
My grandfather was Emmanuel Axel Lundblad, please help me honor him.
Thank you so much,
Carrie Faye
