My dad, Frank J. Ferrier (RIP) also served in WWII on the same ship, the LST 530. He served under the command of Anthony Drexel Duke too. My dad was Chief for the engine room and he talked of Mr. Duke often in his war stories as I recall.

I will try to find a copy of this book to hear of his time on the LST, since that was a period of time that my dad was at sea and I'd love to hear what life was like on the ship. I understand Mr. Duke is still with us, and is live and well on Facebook.
