I am trying to find out any possible information about my Dad: Gene McCormick (Eugene Arthur McCormick) who served in the Armed Guard from 3/13/44 to 5/18/46. I sent for his Navy records and they are sparse. It seems he served on the USS Oceanus, SS Francisco Coronado, SS Tjibesar, SS American Arrow & SS Grundy.
I can find no records of some of these ships.
I am trying to write a narative for my grandchildren and want to put some historical perspective about these ships and maybe some of my Dad's friends thoughts.
Any ideas on where I can find out when and where these ships sailed?
