    Hi Allen. Welcome to the forum. Are there any particular naval battles that you're interested in? I have always been fascinated with the exploits of Taffy 3 in the Battle off Samar.

    Hey y'all, my father served in Co. B 393rd Inf. from 1942 until he was wounded either during or shortly after TBOTB. I have only a few things to go by and one of them is a Christmas menu from 1943 with autographs from his buddies. It's not much to go on but it's all I have.

    I was actually thinking about that and how to go about it. I plan on doing just that sometime this weekend if the computer wizards come over.
