Thanks to Ron Carison for the correction about the Santa Clara. I just had a freind die that had kept a diary on the trip to Nornmandy. He had the ship that was sunk as the Susan B Anthony.We made 20 plus trips in convoys from the states to British Isles and we knew the Santa ships were with us on some of these voyages.I to beleve the name was changed. I did find some where that said it was the Santa Clara and 20 were lost. At the time they said all got off safely.I'm sorry if I was wrong on this name.Five ships went to Normandy. Four came out. We spent the rest of the war shuttling troops in and out of France. Then to Marseille France for the Pacific. The war ended and we returmed to the states.
