My dad was on LST-530 during WWII......European and Pacific Theater. His commanding officer......Anthony Drexel Duke wrote his autobiography a year or so ago titled "Uncharted Course". It details his life growing up with a heritage of three famous American families.....Drexels, Biddles and Dukes. It also describes his time as commander of my Dad's ship during their landings at Normandy and the islands of the Pacific. He comes into contact with lots of famous folks during his life. He's around 90 years old now and has devoted a good deal of his life and good fortune to giving back to disadvantaged youth.

Just wanted to share this with the group. It may be old news as I don't check this board that often.

It's a good read and especially for me as my Dad rarely spoke about WWII.
