I'm looking for any information regarding my father's, Alvin H. Rhoades, service on this ship during WWII. All I have is a "Seamans Allotment Note" dated 5-19-1945, bound "Westward of Los Angeles" voyage,which payed a $50.00 monthly allotment. My father rarely talked about his service, but I know he was in the South Pacific. He died in 1986, and I'd like to tell my sons more about their grandfather. I thank you for any help you can give.
