I am sending this photo of the USS Hank for my father, Gerald E. Moore (SOM 2/C), who joined the Hank in New York in 1944 and sailed on her till 1946. Location and date of photo is unknown but it does show some hard wear on the hull so my Dad thinks it may have been at anchor at Ulithi. The picture was framed at his discharge and has his ribbons and the ship's battle stars along the bottom of the frame.

I'm out here in North Dakota visiting my uncle, who was on the Hank. I bumped into your web site and asked if he'd like to be listed (which he now is), whether he'd like to get in contact with shipmates (which he does) and whether or not he'd like to submit some of his photos (which he does). I got several of his photos scanned and placed on a disc, which I'll take back with me to California tomorrow. I'm pinging you here to see if this is the place to email you the photos. Let me know how many you'd like me to send and what you might be most interested in.

My uncle was very impressed with your site and appreciative of all the work you've done. I hope your new computer upgrade is serving you well.

Yours sincerely,
Phil Stillman, from Silicon Valley
