Hello Mark,

I've just finished scanning all the things belonging to Carl E. Powers of Kalamazoo, MI. He was my mother-in-law's stepfather; I only knew him for the last 6 years (he passed Nov. 25, 2005) but we inherited all his artifacts from WWII and Korea. I have enclosed a picture of Carl in uniform, and a picture of the Mighty K. On the back of the ship's photo there is a stamp that says "NOT FOR PUBLICATION Released to the ship's crew by public relations office..." I don't know if you can use it, but I know she has been laid to rest, so you at least have my permission to post both photos if you like. (I don't know the publication rules in that situation.)

I'm glad I came across your site - you're doing excellent work :)

Sincerely,

Julia Griffith and family
