We are seeking information on the USS Stembel and her crews.
Files and photos may be E-mailed to us and we will incorporate them into these pages.
Photo of the Stembel's 5-inch gun on 4-Nov-1945 -- I believe they were in
San Diego Harbor at that time. My Dad Harold R. Glaeser, S 1/C (FC) is
fourth from left. If anyone knew my dad, I'll love to read some stories.
