uss burleigh navy transport guadacanal
My Dad was on the uss burleigh He was a carpenter's mate in the navy 1st class.He is no longer with us due to natural causes.Here is a little web site with short stuff about him.http://community.webtv.net/LauraPauline/TheWritingsofGaberialhttp://community.webtv.net/LauraPauline/TheWritingsofGaberial Gentile.Orhttp://community.webtv.net/LauraPauline/TheWriningsofhttp://community.webtv.net/LauraPauline/TheWriningsof
I transcribed a one page short story he wrote about his experience in April 1942.If anyone was on the Burleigh with him it would be intresting to hear from you.Sorry to say however most or a lot of the old guys are gone! :(
His missive is intitled "A Bit of Humor in the Midst of Battle"Hope this cheers someone up or is intresting and maybe someone will know of an old 'buddy'.I'm sure the burleigh was scrapped eventually.There are a couple of links about the ship on the site.
