Comments: Hello I m wondering if anyone remembers my father Paul G
Hally who served aboard the Quincy. He never discussed
with me much about his time on the ship. Although he did
show me some of the photos of him boxing. I guess he
used to box aboard the ship which i guess were called
smokers. I m just curious about his time on the ship
as i didn t push the issue. He passed away about 15
years ago and i m sorry i did nt ask more questions as i
know he was proud to serve his country and his time
aboard the ship.

Comments: Hello,
My father, Vearl Chase, was on the USS Quincy CA-71 in
1952 and 1953. He worked as a fireman (boiler rooms).

I am trying to find anyone who was on board during the
cruise in the Mediterranean during December 1952.

Specifically, hoping to find someone who may remember a
severe storm around that time that created problems for
the ship.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you,

Comments: My grandfather is Anthony Tanzola and he served as a pilot aboard a C-47 during the DDay invasion. He dropped supplies for the 101st Airborne then was shot-down into the English Channel. The USS Quincy picked my grandfather and the rest of his crew up out of the Channel. My grandfather stayed with the Quincy for the rest of that mission while they unloaded their ammunition onto the beaches. I've recently started researching his experiences since I know I won't have him to tell me them directly anymore. Anyone that can provide me with different sites, or places to contact I would really appreciate it. Also, if you were on the Quincy at that time and remember this then I would really love to hear from you.

Thank you all!
