No listing as crewmember?

Why would my Father-in-law's name, Robert C. Olsen, Seaman/2c, NOT be listed on the crew-members page for the USS SPICA, 1944-45? That's the ship he was on!  Any comments appreciated.

Happy Independence Day!

Besides living in Canada for 6 years, I’ve had the privilege of traveling to Germany and France when I was young. With business, I traveled and worked with companies in Iceland, France, the UK, and Italy. In the Navy, I did humanitarian operations throughout the Bahamas and Puerto Rico. We also did joint training operations in Europe with the UK, France, and Israelis. I served in Desert Shield and Desert Storm, spending time in Egypt, Israel, United Arab Emirates…

Another soon to be homeless Vet.

My Wife of 18 years walked out the front door April 29th and is filing for divorce. I haven't seen her or our Son since. She and Her Brother have kicked me and our Daughter to the curb! All the bills; water and electric, natural gas, telephone, cable and Internet were in her name, and she paid the rent. She get's SSI (Supplemental Security Income) and disability payments because she's handicapped. Her brother manages her bank account and controls the money.

Now I decided to create T-shirts commemorating the 60's, cold war and where I was and might have…
