    My dad was Pfc. Robert Goldwyn, a marine, Flag Allowance Com. Cur. Div. 10. Was assigned to ship in June 1943 at Boston Harbor, where it was commissioned on June 30. He served on the ship until 1944. I have a few pages from a diary he kept listing ports of call from first cruise to the Marshall Islands, action in the Marshall Islands, then a cruise to the Solomon Islands and the Caroline Islands. He writes about becoming a “shellback” on March 9 after crossing the international dateline.
    He writes about an attack on Truk Island on 4/30/44 and mentions a bad knee, eventually getting transferred to a hospital ship, U.S.S. Relief on 5/8/44. On 6/3/44 he was back at Pearl Harbor and remained in the hospital until July 31.
    Dad passed away in 2005. I can reprint details and names of other crew members if anyone is interested.
