Re: A USN LDS? I need help finding owners family
If circumstantial evidence means anything at all, the reference that Bob C. gave below leads to this listing in BARRANCAS NATIONAL CEM. which is located on the grounds of NAS PENSACOLA:
Harkness, Eugene R, b. 06/22/1927, d. 12/24/1989, US Navy, ETC(SS), Res: Pensacola, FL, Plot: 36 0 3650, bur. 12/27/1989
ETC is his rank: Electronics Technician was his specialty and C means he was a Chief Petty Officer.
(SS) is a special designation which means that he was qualified in Submarines.
Harkness's middle name is Russell.
His DD-214N (Discharge) is on file at the Escambia County Court House:
Document # 1984306450
Apparently his wife's name was Pauline.
