Re: my father ... in the armed guard

I got my dad's separation papers from the VA. He served first with the Armed Guard aboard the MS Brastagi (I think he said it was a Dutch ship) in the Atlantic. The USS Black Hawk, AD9, was a destroyer tender where he served in the Pacific and later on the USS Sierra AD18, another destroyer tender, also in the Pacific. They landed in China and went ashore briefly. I used to have a Navy blouse that was converted to a jacket with a dragon and Tsing Tao embroidered on it. Wish I still had it. Thanks for your help Regards--Jerry Manning
