Anyone know what "TSO" stands for in US Maritime Service?
Posted by Sherry Harris on February 9, 2016, 3:06 pm
My father, William Streit Dickinson Jr, graduated as a Lt. JG in the US Maritime Service in 1944 from New London, CT. He sailed on the Liberty Ship "Joseph M Medill" during WWII. |
I have a photo of my father, who passed away in 2003, with other men in New London, CT. Possibly after graduation, but I'm not sure. They are all wearing armbands with "TSO" on them. What do the letters "TSO" stand for?
Also, I'd like to know what month the 1944 classes of officers graduated at New London, CT. My father was in a class prior to July 1944, but I don't know what month.
Any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Sherry Harris
