Today we will bury my Grandfather who died 06SEP14 at 91. He served on the Nashville from 1943-1946. He was there when it was MacArthur’s flagship in Leyte Gulf
He was there for the kamikaze attack
He was there when the Nashville pulled into Shanghai after repairs in the US
While they were in for repairs, he went on a blind date with a girl from Oklahoma who was in Bremerton working for Western Union. That blind date turned into a 68 year marriage.
Sure am going to miss him…
