My father was sent to Pearl Harbor on Mar 2, 1942, on the Pres. Hayes, as a "Ship's" PVT 1ST CLASS, and was assigned to Co. D, MB NYd, which I understand would be the Marine Barracks at the Navy Yard.It is also my understanding that my father performed salvage operations, to include victims of the bombing of Pearl Harbor.Can anyone assist by guiding me to where I might find more information regarding Company D?
My father then was assigned to the "California" from May 6, 1942 to June 18, 1942, and from there was assigned to the Gd. Co. 1, Nyd, Bremerton, Washington, as a "Ship's Coporal - M/R."Can anyone also assist by guiding me to where I might find more information about the Gd. Co. 1, Nyd, Bremerton?
