Thanks for the help on the Turner's gap. Great information. I as a veteran myself (Army 93-95 medical discharge for diabetes) have been doing lots of pondering about the veterans in our family on both my mother's and fathers sides. My grandpa "Pete" Haid was quite a character and had arms as big as Popeye the Sailerman and the tattoo's to go with it!!! Just a great man whom I have some of the fondest memories as a kid growing up in Southwestern Pennsylvania. I hope to make a trek to see the SS John Brown and take my mother on the cruise in his honor...... someday real soon!!! God bless and thanks for the help!!! Anyone else who might be able to help on the other 3 ships or any other places to look for info about this great ships there cruises etc. I would love to do a recreation of his active service (11/43 thru 1/1946).
