Shipmate list for the USS Idaho
Does anyone know how I can get a list of the shipmates on the USS. Idaho?
Im looking for information on my Husbands Father who passed away when he was 3 years old.
I went on the military site and filled out the information I have on him which isnt much. And they were not able to locate him in the records.
I was told that he didnt have a birth cert. and on the records Ive found so far is that his name at birth was G.W. Riley no name other than that. I also know that he went by Johnnie and Red. I also was told that he gave the name of George Washington Riley when he joined the Navy as he had to have a full name. No matter where I look I get no where.
I know he was on the Idaho as a gunner and served in the Normandy.
