My father was a GM3 aboard the S.S. George W. Childs assigned primarily to the 20mm Oerlikon A-A cannon. As of this writing (January 2018), he is 93 and is still sharp. Have been working on Armed Guard reports and getting the medals he earned but never received. He also served aboard the LST-1108 and USS Nashville (CL-43) If you're still out there after all these years, please write. The Childs was scuttled at Normandy. There is a photo of it sitting in the sand off of Omaha Beach on a French web site. Other photos of the ship also exist. |
