Subject: USS Maury DD401
My brother, GM3/C Daniel G. Gama served on the U.S.S. Maury DD 401 from late December 1941 through to the end of WWII. I have tried to add his name to the Maury's Crew List but the Crew List form does not list the Gridley Class destroyers so I can't add his name to the list. There were only four Gridley Class destroyers. I appareciate any help you can give me on getting his name on the Maury's crew list.
My brother Daniel passed away on March 14, 1998 and believe me, he was really proud of his service on the Maury. The Maury was one of the most decorated ship in the Pacific. The Maury earned 16 battle stars and a Presidential Unit Citation. My brother received a Bronze Star for bringing down an emeny plane with a 20 MM before it could hit his ship.
His daughter, my niece, has a picture of him and the first chance I get I will scan it in a "jpg" format and email it to you if you like.
P.S. His last name had only one "m" and mine has two "m". So list his name with just the one (Gama)..
