Display Room Two
Under the picture of our former Commanders, USS Georgetown (AGTR-2) and USS
Palm Beach (AGER-3).
Dogs (and cats) and sailors on Islands. Visible pictures are of two dogs
on Midway Island in 1959, Boats
and Fritz on the pier waiting for the shuttle
boat; "Sparky" at Imperial Beach copying code when "it got so
busy, we had to
put the dog on watch."
We are looking for more "pet" on our island bases. We are looking
for a good
picture of "lo Boy" from Guam.
Below "Sparky" is a complete bedroom set donated by RM1 John Grafing while
stationed in Melbourne,
Australia. His hammock, mattress, pillow, mattress
cover, pillow cover and 2 Navy blankets are on display.
In a different part
of Room Two, are PO Grafing Dress Blue's from World War II (with Ruptured
Undress White and Blue Uniform, plus White Hat. We had several
members who donated there beloved
Two display cabinets with a Herbon Cipher system and various World War II
strips ciphers, and
cipher books dated from 1846.
Several Sailors have donated dress blue uniform (with gold hash marks), an
old fashion (1950, 60's) WAVE
uniform, one Marine Corp cover (donated by a
young NROTC Unit teenager), Wave's Cover. We hope to
purchase a curio
cabinet in the near future to house the covers, and other items.
