Thank you for your information, and my sympathies on the death of your father. Every Armed Guard sailor was a brave man.
The Armed Guard website and The Pointer are two entirely separate entities. The Pointer is the property of the U.S.N. Armed Guard World War II Veterans Association, which is led by a Mr. C.A. Lloyd in North Carolina. The Veterans Association has no role in the website and I have no role in The Pointer. That said, C.A. Lloyd and I keep in close contact. I will forward your information to him.
Just FYI, C.A.'s contact information is:
C.A. Lloyd, Chairman
U.S.N. Armed Guard World War II Veterans Association
115 Wall Creek Drive
Rolesville, NC 27571
Again thanks for passing on your information.
