My dad served on the Menifee in the ship's store, during WWII. He was on the ship when it landed units of the 1st Marine battalion for the invasion of Okinawa on Easter Sunday, 1945. He was also on the ship when it became one of the many that carried occupation forces into Japan. He took troops into Nagasaki - his description of the experience will send chills down your spine - it did mine.

I have transcribed all his letters from his naval service and have quite a bit of info about the ship, his routine - he was a VERY good writer - lots of vivid details. I also have the ship's book on CD which I'm glad to share.

Glad to share what I can.

Linda
