Most of the pictures I've posted here have also been submitted to Navsource.org. as well. On the LST 512's page, you can link to a PDF version of the ship's history on the tour. Since it was a digital scan of a 3rd or 4th generation photocopy, a lot of the pictures don't show great quality, but you can see more of the display areas on the tank and main decks.
There are 2 pictures of a Marine, last name Fagan, who had a pet duck, "Siwash" (corrupted from "Sidewasher).According to Bob Kepler, anotehr Marine, Fagan would take the duck ashore, give him a few drinks, then "everybody got a laugh out of a drunk duck."
