My wife's great-uncle, Joseph Jerome Fay, died on April 18, 1944 after contracting a streptococcal infection while at boot camp at Sampson.

Would there exist any record (documents, photos, etc.) pertaining to him during his time in training at Sampson.

Also, I learned today that my late father-in-law, John E. Donaldson, also trained at Sampson, and may have been there at the same time as Mr. Fay. A Brooklyn Eagle article from June 25, 1944 noted that John Donaldson was among a number of Brooklynites who were home on leave from Sampson.

John Donaldson (Service # 908-68-22) later served on the USS Hanson (DD-832) in the Pacific following Japan's surrender.

Might there be any record of his training at Sampson? Thanks.
