Greetings from Massachusetts, I am researching my grandfather's Naval service from 1942-45. He was wounded in the air raid at Bari Harbor, Italy on Dec 2, 1943, gunner's mate aboard the John Bascom. As many of you know, one of the ships sunk that night, the John Harvey, was carrying 100 tons of mustard gas. The Harvey exploded during the attack, releasing the poison into the air and water, killing countless Naval personnel. My grandfather, Reginald J Baker, received the Bronze Star and the Purple Heart, as well as a citation for heroism. Though seriously wounded, he swam next to the only lifeboat to a jetty, assuring those with greater injuries were safely conveyed in the lifeboat. I hope to get some help directing me to where I can obtain a copy of a Navy Dept press release from Aug 10, 1944, which was titled, "Heroism of Armed Guardsmen Told in Citations." The press release was sourced in "Unsung Sailors," by Justin F Gleichauf (1990). Any info gratefully appreciated!
