Thanks Kevin:Captain Arnett was a "Mustang".I believe that is what they were called.He had been a Chief Petty Officer Signal man on Submarines before he got a chance to command a lowly LST.Died at such a young age (46). I presume he had been discharged from Navy.. I wonder if an accident. Enough rambling.. Thanks for the advice.I did order a death certificate and a film of the San Jose Mercury ( I think that was paper)If those ploys fail I will take your advice which sounds like the route to go.I liked Navy Life and hope you do also
