Lt.(jg) Thomas J. Scalese, Sr.(USN Retired) was born April 13, 1906 in Haverhill, Mass. and died April 9, 1975 in Hemet, Ca.
I am Thomas J. Scalese Jr., his only child.
I honestly do not know my dad's service date aboard the Salt Lake City. I was born in Tsingtoa, China in July of 1939 while he was aboard the Augusta but I am not positive of that. Later on in the war he was on board some jeep carriers such as the Gilbert Islands and The Belleau Woods.
I do not have his discharge papers. He got out in 1946 or early 47. He joined in 1924 and served 22 years.
He was an Electrician's Mate and probably was a 2nd or perhaps a 1st class in those days. He was commisssioned in WWII and was a Lt. (jg) when he finally left the Navy in 46..
The above picture is of him and I in about 1942. He was a Warrant Officer then I believe.
