Picture 11 of 11 from Album WWII photos
USS Porter. My Uncle Doyle was the bosun's mate on this ship. For some reason (I believe it had to do with drunkenness and/or severe hangover) he was at the helm as they passed through the Panama Canal. He was quite a hero and left the Navy with a drawer full of medals and tuberculosis and spent the next 8 years in a VA hospital.
