USS Tolland AKA 64 - Richard Robison 1944-1945
I was just wondering if there is anyone out there who served on the USS Tolland in the Pacific in 1944-1945. My Father was on this vessel.
His name was Richard Walter Robison. He was from Heppner, Oregon. He was part of a landing craft crew. Unfortunately he passed away in March of 1977 at the age of 57.
I have a scrap book he put together for me that has many pictures of boot camp in Farragat, Idaho in 1943, Charelston, South Carolina, onboard ship, the Phillines, Hiroshima after the bomb was dropped, Davy Jones court when crossing the equator and entering Tokyo harbor in September, 1945 when the peace agreement was signed.
He told me many stories as a child growing up. If there is anyone out there who knew my father or was onboard ship at this same time I'd love to hear from you. This also goes to children of anyone who was onboard. Thanks in advance.
