Hi Jessica, welcome and thank you for joining us.

I will be adding your grandfather to our 'Hall of Heroes Registry' this weekend. We also have a corresponding photo album, of which, I can add any WWII-era photos of your father. In order to do this, upload those photos to your 'My Photos' app. on your profile. I can then aggregate those to our "Family Members" photo albums.

Just something that we offer if you are interested. Let me know if you have any questions!  Scott Lyons

World War II at Sea: A Naval View of the Global Conflict: 1939 to 1945

By JEREMY HARWOOD

The publication date is 1 July 2015 »

Please join us the evening of 18 June 2015 in the 'Victory at Sea: U.S. Navy, Coast Guard & Merchant Marine' group. We have ten (10) copies reserved for us by our great friend Nichole Schiele and business partner Zenith Press.

From Zenith Press: "Discover how the vital war at sea was fought, from the first battle to the last. As soon as World War II broke out in September 1939, the conflict at sea began and was fought with fury until the unconditional surrender of Germany and Japan nearly six years later. World War II at Sea highlights the key moments in this fascinating, pivotal, and absorbing story."
