Comments: I was curious to see if anyone knew him and or remembered him. He
served from 1942-1947. He left the ship in China due to a medical
issue.

Grandpa Erwin sang many of the songs he learned in the navy to all us
grandchildren. He passed away in 1994 but it would be interesting to
learn more about him, especially before I could know him. Any
information would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.
