Message: I am looking for information on my Father's Marvin Groters Sr. military service onboard the LCI(G)34 and the LCI(L)227. My Father never talked about his service and I never pushed it. Now he is gone and I have his military records from the military. He served from 1-11-44 to 4-23-46. It listed his medals as American Area Campaign Medal, Asiatic Pacific Area Campaign Medal(2 bronze stars), Philipine Liberation Ribbon(2 bronze stars). If anyone knows anything about my Father or the vessels that are listed above please contact me at the email I have included. Anything would be greatly appreciated. I found a picture of him with a friend but no names were on it. It was taken on a dock with the ocean in the background and they were in work clothes having a cigarette. Thanks for any help anyone can give me..

Message: I have my Boot Camp picture of San Diego Company 43-363 taken when we graduated from Boot Camp about 30 August 1943.
If any happen to read this, send me an email and I'll send you a copy of our Company.
We're a sorry looking bunch of Boots but our hats are squared off and our Kerchiefs are all regulation depth.

Message: I am a historian and archaeologist and on Monday I completed an inspection of the former LCI L 653. The ship is in extremely bad condition and is slated to be disposed of in deep water off Alaska. A sad but necessary end to a long career in the navy and in civilian service. Given the ship's historic status, I am hoping to preserve any stories or other information about the vessel and would be interested in hearing from anyone who has information, stories, photographs, or objects.

Message: My father served on LCI 95 in the Pacific during WW II. He lives in Michigan at this time. His name is William Nichols. I know that he was in Japan shortly after the bomb was dropped. If anyone out there knows someone who also served onboard during this time would be greatly appreciated.

Message: My Uncle died April 2008. He was LT LA West on the LCI 754 during WWII in the pacific. He only spoke of the war once to me and I recorded it.Last weekend I went through three boxes of his and found a photo album he kept during the war. He received a Bronze star with a V for valor. I also fond a stack of letters he wrote to my Aunt. If anyone served with him or knows of others who did, please contact me.
