My Uncle Bill was on the Atlanta, and my grandparents received notice that he had been killed in action. Turned out there was another Bill Rohloff on the Juneau who was killed in action and in the confusion of war there was a mix-up.
In the aftermath, my Dad was aboard the Farragut and they were one of the ships assigned to screen the Portland on her journey to Sydney for repairs.
