My father served on the USS Preble minesweeper from OCT 1941 where it sailed from Pearl Harbor after the bombing. He was originally an Ensign on start of service and rose through the ranks to Lt Cmdr surviving two serious attacks onboard in the Solomon Islands Campaign. Im listing a lot of his stuff over the coming weeks, it is all genuine and has been stored since the end of the war. I am proud to say, im his daughter, he was a truly amazing man.
