Thanks for this information Vincent, and THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERIVCE!

A couple of years ago I was in contact with another fine Tarawa vet, Robert "Bob" Bollum, D-2-10, who was on the USS FELAND. Bob was wounded on D+3 and sent to Hawaii and then to San Diego aboard the USS SOLACE.

Thank you again, Vincent, and God Bless!
