Thanks for posting up about your father and his service in the Armed Guard.
I am the adjunct curator for the Armed Guard Museum on board the SS John W. Brown.
We would love to have your fathers items for our collection.
My wifes family lives up on Long Island so we are up in NY several times a year. We also did a mini tour of the former Armed Guard Center in Brooklyn the other year and I made a few short videos of the site on my YouTube channel.
