    Default Honoring relative who served in the Pacific

    Friends, Today, on Navy Day, I honor my Uncle Edward Bradshaw - Coxswain and LCVP pilot. Campaigns included Saipain, Iwo Jima (Red Beach 2), Okinawa and occupation of Japan. In 1984 he gave me all of his memorabilia saying "I know you'll take care of it." I'm sharing a page from his original landing attack orders for Iwo Jima - a mimeograph document made on his mother ship the U.S.S. Rutland APA 192. I can share the entire document if the membership here is interested. The solemn photo was taken before his assignment to active duty in 1944. Neil H.
