USS SLC..."Enlisted Navy"...Martin Roppolo, SF1c

Apr. 10th, 2000
Dear Sandy,

Here is my brief history of my service in the Navy and my time on the USS Salt Lake City, CA25.

I enlisted at the Brooklin Navy Yard on Jan. 26th, 1942 and reported to boot camp at Newport, RI. in Feb. 1942. I reported to sheetmetal school in San Diego, CA. in April of 1942.

I then reported to the US Submarine Base at Pearl Harbor in Aug. of 1942 as Fireman 1/c. I then reported on the USS SALT LAKE CITY in Feb. 1943 as SF3c. I served in the "R" Division while on the SLC until my discharge.

I was discharged at Ledo Beach, Long Island on Nov. 11, 1945 with SF1c rating.

Thanking you, I remain Sincerely
Martin Roppolo
