LST 512 Deck Department. Dad is the BMC on the viewer's left. I can only identify a few of the others; Lt Hardy Glenn, Gunnery Officer, Lt. (jg) Leo Silverstein, First Lieutenant, BMC Joseph Kerdock, (all in front)and BM3 Paul Mackrell, 3rd from right in the front row. Paul lives in Hagerstown, MD.

In remarks contained in a booklet "History of the LST 512, Navy Traveling Exhibit Ship" Lt. Stevens wrote "This ship has given the American Public living along the inland waterway a first hand glimpse of our Amphibious Forces...Every man, an ambassador of good will, has dutifully explained the commonplace, answered innumerable questions, and efficiently handled more than two million visitors. We have successfully stimulated interest in the Navy; we have not let Americans forget its achievements in war, nor its role in maintaining peace."
