USS SLC...Enlisted Navy...Earl E. Craig, S1c

My grandfather's name is Earl E. Craig. I believe he served on board between 43-45. I think he was a BM3c. [Records show S1c-S. Eskew] I don't know what division he was in, but he did talk about loading the 16in gun. He had some kind of back injury which got him discharged.

I haven't heard too many stories about his shipmates. I found 2 of his pictures on the website, and he asked me if that was really him. I moved to the Kwajalein Atoll in 2000 to work for the government, and when I told him he said they bombed the hell out of this place.
