Hi everyone. I stumbled on this site while doing a google search after pretty much getting nowhere anyplace else. I am looking to see if anyone may be able to tell me what ship my grandpa may have served on in WW2. I know it is a long shot to find someone on here who may have actually known him, but maybe someone could give me an idea of what boat(s) he was on. He entered into service on 9-26-43 and served until 12-22-45. He told my mom he was on a merchant ship in the Philippines. On his discharge papers it states ratings held as AS-S2/0-S1/0-, Qualifications: Gunsmith Work, Service: Armed Guard Center Pacific. Place of separation was P508 Shoemaker, CA. Thanks to everyone in advance if you may be able to help.
