We received this site by e-mail from a couple of relatives who came across
it. They were surprised to find George Gorohoff's picture in the ones
published. These are pictures of my father that we had never seen.

It is unfortunate that we did not find this site sooner, as Dad might have
been able to identify some of the sailors in the photos.
George John Gorohoff, CPhM passed away on February 6th of
2001. He had resided for the past 9 years at the California Veterans Home
in Yountville, California. His final resting place is in the veteran
cemetery on the Yountville Veteran Home grounds beside veterans from
virtually all of the wars since & including the War of 1812.
Perhaps this info for a "Taps" section or memorial section of the USS Salt
Lake City may be of interest to others:
He was born in San Francisco Ca on May 2 1917 of Russian born Immigrant
parents, and was the first generation of his family to be born in this
country, He served in the US Navy until his Retirement as a Chief Warrant
Officer until 1954. He was a Pearl Harbor Survivor, & had served with the
1st Marine Detachment on the front lines in Korea, among his many duty
stations. His last duty station was in the Psych wards at Oak Knoll Naval
Hospital in Oakland California. He is survived by 4 sons, 9 grandchildren
& 7 great-grandchildren, a half sister and many nieces & nephews as well
as great & great-great nieces & nephews; he will be missed by all.
Thank you for the site & the information & pictures of the valiant men of
the USS Salt Lake City.
