I have a picture of the USS Mosley DE-321 , an Edsall class DE.
You have the ship listed but no picture.
Request you give credit to Dori Bolen in honor of her father: Grover
Clinton Pettigrew who was a Gunnersmate on the Mosley during WWII. Mr
Pettigrew passed away in summer of 1999.
Please let me know when the picture is posted so I can let Dori Bolen know.
