This group photograph of the Calvert’s 2nd Division Boat Crews came from my grandfather’s collection. He spoke kindly of all these men. Many of the exploits of this group are detailed in the Adventures of a Landing Craft Coxswain book.

Ted Garcia sent in this photograph of his father, David Julio Garcia. David served on the Calvert from ’45-’46 as a cook. Here he is at 86 years old, holding his Navy photograph from when he was 17 years old.
Mr. Garcia would like to hear from anyone from the ’45-’46 era who remembers him. Send me an email and I’ll put you in contact with his son, Ted.
