    Hello,

    I have recently acquired some of my great uncle’s possessions from WWII to include his wallet. As I was looking through it I found his Domain of Neptunis Rex card. Dated 2nd Day of October 1944 aboard the U.S.S. Calvert (APA-32), Latitude 00-00 Longitude 154… I wanting to see If I could get his name added to the WWII era members? Also to find out more about him, if possible?
    In his wallet he has pictures of his buddies he served with.

    Please contact me if you would like to inquire more.

    I have been looking over the crew lists for this ship during WWII and am not finding my dad listed. He was Seamen First Class Robert L. Smith and always told me he was an LST pilot. I have his day by day journal he kept with all the invasions he participated in. I remember him and my mom always traveling to conventions since the early 1990’s until his passing on December 31, 2005. Was wondering if he could be added to the ships crew list.
    Thank you all for your service.
    All gave some, some gave all.
    Lest we forget.
    This we’ll defend.

    Not going to pay for information I already know. All I was wanting is him added to the ships rolls on this website.

    My father David Raymond Reese from Dinwiddie Virginia served aboard the Calvert from 1942 to 1945 as STK. Can he be listed on crew list? He passed on 1989. He had a very close friend with the last name “Meinshein” (sp?) Where can I find his information? Thank you in advance for your help.

    Hello,
    Could you add my deceased father to the WWII crew? George Lamar Fussell served aboard the Calvert from 25 Aug 1944 to 30 Apr 1945 as a MM3. I found his service aboard the Calvert vis US Naval Muster Rolls 1938 – 1949.

If you have in information about him or a picture , I would sure appreciate it. I thought I saw him in the picture of the landing crews, But I am not sure . Thank you, David E Grainger

    Hi,
    My dad would have been 100 right now if he were alive. He served as Chief Petty Officer on the Calvert but worked his way up from the the USS Harry Lee first before it got damaged. I always asked questions as I child about the war but instead my 6 sisters and I got an “I remember” story of his life. Not only does it reflect his life in general of remembrances but a masterful collection of his life in the Navy. It was so impressive I would have bought the book if I hadn’t read his own words he left to us. I would love to know if anyone is still alive from his crew and if so if they remembered him. Thanks so much.
