I am trying to find out which ship my great uncle, James Frank Dumas was on when it sank. He survived the sinking, but died 7 months after being discharged for the Navy due to lung problems he incurred from being in the water so long when ship sank. I was able to obtain his DD214 and it says he was in the Armed Guard in Brooklyn, New York and in the Pacific. But it gives no names of the ship or ships he might have been on. He entered into the service in March 1943 and was discharged in January of 1946 in San Pedro, California. He died in August of 1946 at the age of 23. If anyone knew my great uncle or knows how I might find out the ships he was on I would greatly appreciate the help! I have been working on my geneology and my whole family really would love information on Frank, especially he only remaining sister.
