Mr. Schrank may be interested in joining the U.S.N. Armed Guard WW II Veterans Association. The Association publishes an interesting periodical, named "The Pointer," with articles about the experiences of Naval Armed Guard personnel during World War II. The Association charges no membership dues but gladly accepts donations. Contact information for the Association is: |

In searching ancestry.com for Mr. Schrank, I found that he arrived in New York City as a member of the Armed Guard crews aboard the S.S. MONTEREY in 1943 and the S.S. MIDNIGHT in 1944. He may have served on other ships as well.
