I am so excited I'm beside myself!!
On your link to pictures of Gun Loaders, I think I can identify person (#3 & #5)as my father "Charles Edward Boullt"!! and on your link to pictures of Gun Loaders, I think I can Identify person
#3 in picture with 5th Div. Gun Crew, 1942
#5 in picture with 5th Div. Gun Crew, 1942
Oh My God! This is Him!!! In picture number 179 person #5 front row to the right squatting down, with one knee down with one hand on that knee, and the other knee up with arm and elbow on knee....I have seen my dad many time in this same body position while fishing!!!
Also that dark hair and eyes, and that darker skin tone, this is my dad, he had dark brown eye, black hair, and dark olive skin to due his grandfather being part American Indian. My gosh, from of the time of my birth till today I have light olive skin from my Dad! Plus!! My brother, Charles Edward Boullt Jr. who's skin tone was white and has blonde hair, favoring my mother, in body and facial features my brother looks like a carbon copy of my father! This is unmistakable, in group picture 178 person #3, and 179 person #5 is my Father Charles Edward Boullt! Wow!! Thank You!
I would also like to add, my brother Charles E. Boullt Jr. is also a Navy vet from VietNam to Desert Storm. Also, my father's brother (Thomas Eugene Boullt Born: 11, August, 1932) who is still living today, was discharged from the Navy in 1959....Navy men run in my family.
Oh, one more thing, my uncle Thomas E. Boullt some how got two flags that were on the U.S.S. Salt Lake City on my Dads behalf. My uncle Thomas E. Boullt gave them to my brother Charles E. Boullt Jr., and he has them today. I remember one of the flags was the "something" Jack, maybe union jack?? I'll find out for ya on my end. One last thing I do remember my Dad telling me was that he was shell shocked injured in WWII. He used to have bad dreams about that incident and WWII for most of his life afterward. I remember when Dad had WWII nightmares "No" one could try to wake him up or he would defend himself on that person and not wake up while doing it. God Bless, Keep, and Hold Dear, All Our Veterans For What They Did, Went Through, Endured, and Were Haunted By For The Rest Of Their Lives....for us and freedom. A-men.
Thank You so much for fixing Dad a personal page. If there is anything I can do from my end for you please don't hesitate to let me know.
Again, Thank You, Thank You, SOoooooooo Much....., all of this means so much to us the family of Charles Edward Boullt, S1c, Gun Crew - 3rd Loader.
Your New Friend,
Daughter of a Sailor on the ship U. S. S. Salt Lake City.
