Subject: USS Black DD 666
My grandfather Anthony Giaquinto served aboard the Black during WWII and survived the war, but unfortunately died before I was born. Being in the Navy myself now, I understand the bonds you make with people you work so closely with constantly. I can only imagine the bond would intensify with what they were going through at the time. I was hoping that someone who knew my grandfather could tell me a little about him during that time of his life.
Thanks in advance,
Walter H. Lohmann
I reported in Mare Island Shipyard, proceeded to Pearl, Okinawa and Philippines, back to Okinawa on Easter Sunday, 1945.
Great web site. Hadn't thought about the BLACK for years until I found this site. I was the Supply Officer and Disbursing Officer.
The ship was sunk and he was one of only a few survivors.he died while I was young, Anyone with any information about this ship I would like to hear from and would be gratefully appreciated.
