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.

Message: I have a house just off Utah Beach in Normandy and I recently found a paddle in the attic belonging to LCI(L)93. This lead me to investigate the story of this craft and its operations on Omaha Beach on D Day. I feel proud to own a small piece of history.

Message: My Uncle, Robert Moore served in the Navy from Sept 1943 to Dec 1945. He was Quarter Master 3rd Class aboard the LCI 977. Bob is now deceased, but I have a picture of his entire crew of 31 sailors with no names. Does anyone know of anyone who sailed with him on the LCI 977 in the Pacific?
