I am doing a photo book for my Dad of the World War II Memorial in Washington D.C. because unfortunately he'll never get to see it in person. He was an officer on LST 698 and I would appreciate any pictures that anyone might have of the ship. My Dad is a quiet man and in my 64 years I have never been able to get him to talk about his war experiences. I did 21 years in the Navy from 1969 to 1990 and always thought somewhere along the line we'd have a conversation about his experiences during the war, but it has never come. He is a very private man and I am content to leave it at that, but the pictures of LST 698 would be greatly appreciated. I know little about his war experiences from a book written by Homer Haswell called "LSTs: The Ships With The Big Mouth". Thanks for any help I get and to all who served in the past or are currently serving - THANKS FOR YOUR SERVICE!
