Dad joined the Navy because of that day. He assisted in troop landings on North Africa, Sicily, Salerno, Southern France, and Okinawa. Dad served on the AKA 1 Arcturus. A history of the ship is on the web. I like to read it sometimes, makes me closer to him. It was the first of the ''Attack Cargo Ship'' class. Just like the ship ''Mr Robert's'' served on. I had nine uncles serve during WWII. I would like to hear/see Yall's thoughts on this famous day.
