I was in the Sixth Division, Gunner's Mate 2c from 1942 to 1945.
I was operated on for appendicitis while we were at sea somewhere between Pearl Harbor & the Aleutian Islands on March 14th, 1943.
Dr. Raymond N. Whitehead, Lt.
did the surgery and the
Captain Bertram J. Rodgers
was at the helm. I went through the operation fine and was recovering in Sick Bay when we were in the Battle of the Komandorski Island Battle. I was not able to go to my battle station. They sent me to the Ward Room where the rest of the sick and injured were.
