The S.S. Young America took us aboard at Namur Island on Feb 10th or 11th in i944. The Fourth Marine Div. Invaded the Roi and Naumr Islands (Marshalls) on Feb 2, 1944. It was the first action for the 4th Div. We were transported back to Maui,Hawaii for refit and more training. I believe the ship was a passenger ship in pre-war days. I am trying to find a suitable picture to add to a family/war history that I am preparing.

I liked the Young America better than the APA ships that I had been associated with. My division left Maui and were taken by an APA to Saipan and Tinian in the Marianas.

If you can direct me to a picture I would be pleased.

Thank you,
