I came across your web site while researching family history. I was interested in information about the ships on which my Dad and his brother served during WW II. My uncle was on the SLC and my Dad the USS Firedrake. I was shocked and thrilled to find my uncle's pictures among the multitude of wonderful information on your site. His name is C. V. Brandon. It seems that a Mr. Jim Forrester posted the pictures and was interested in knowing what happened to C. V.

Thank you so much for responding to my e-mail regarding Jim Forrester and my uncle C. V. Brandon. I'm happy to say I did hear from Jim. He had some wonderful stories to tell. We would love to have a page in honor of C. V. I spoke with my cousin, she was thrilled. We will send you the picture and information soon. I can't thank you enough.

Clarence was born June 7, 1925 in Union, Iowa. I think he took basic training in Great Lakes area. On Oct. 9, 1943 he went aboard the USS Salt Lake City in route to Hawaii for assignment. Along the way, he was assigned to the Salt Lake City in their electrical division. He was assigned to the power shop, where they took care of all the motors and generators. His battle station was the #2 turrett, which had 3 8" guns.
