    Just found this post, thanks for submitting. My daddy, Clayton Mitchell was a member of the first crew, involved in shakedown after being reassigned from the Northampton, which was sunk in late 1942. Wish I could hear some stores of action involved with the Boston.

    Thank you to whomever made this site. My late grandfather, Kenneth Stallard, served on the USS Boston and was a member of the first crew. It was great to find my grandfather’s records on this site. We also found out that my husband’s late grandfather, Leo Wesson, was also a plank owner on the USS Boston. Both men served on the USS Boston from 1943-1945. They dont make many like the young heros on that ship, those that have passed on are sorely missed.

    My grandfather MM3 Earl L Graham served aboard Boston 44-46. Thank you for making this site. Some of my fondest memories is of him telling me about his experiences aboard Boston. Sadly he passed in July of 2011. He was the finest man I ever knew and I miss him terribly.

    My father, Alfred Lee Henderson , proudly served on the Boston during the entire war. He was always telling his three girls of the adventures he experienced on the ship. He died on Father’s Day 1996 and he loved going to the reunions.
