Thank You very much Ron for such a detailed and helpful reply. I listed DOW because that was what I found in Casuality Report. However in a telegram my mother received it stated that he died from "Cerebral Hemorrhage" But gave no cause. I now suspect that this was caused by an accident or existing medical condition. I will continue to investigate using the sources You have listed. Regardless of how he died I am proud that He served in the Armed Guard and I think that He chose this service because His Brothers were both in the Merchant Marine at the time. I continued the tradition by serving in the US Navy from 1958 to 1962 and again in the Naval Reserve from 1983 to 1985.
Thanks again Ron for Your dedication and the Help You provide to all the Veterans and service families.
