I am awaiting my father's military records. His name was Paul Dane Drury & he served on the S.S. Charles M. Hall with Tom Bowerman on that ship.
Tom contacted my mother many years ago, I believe in 1999. He talked to her several times on the phone regarding my dad. He sent her his autobiography and a picture of my dad. We were thrilled to see the picture, because none of us had seen it before. Tom was saddened to hear my father had passed away. We were happy to hear a few stories that Tom had about dad & to read Tom's life story.
I came across what I believe to be certificates where the S.S. Charles M. Hall and S.S. Utahan crossed the international time line. The Hall passed it on 11/18/1942 and the Utahan on 07/08/1945. I am having problems finding anything about the Utahan.
Do you all have any information on this ship?
Thank you kindly,
