My grandfather literally has saved everything. During WWII he was trained at the Great Lakes Naval Base as a signalman. From there he went to Solomon Island, Maryland for Underwater Demolition, a precursor to the SEALs, training at the (PhibTraBase) Amphibious Training Base. He was also at Ft. Pierce for the same training. Ultimately he was sent overseas as a signalman on LST 339. This is an unused liberty pass from his time on Solomon Island.
