Like father, like son

My father served in the U.S. Navy in the Pacific during World War II, ending his naval career as a Second Class Electricians Mate (EM-2). He served on several destroyers throughout the Pacific during World War II, even decommissioning one destroyer at 32nd Street in San Diego. Later, Dad served as part of the occupational forces in Japan after the war ended, serving in Yokosuka, where I later served on USS Midway, the first permanently home-ported aircraft carrier. Dad grew up in the small farming community of Ioka, Utah, where his mother was the community nurse, postmistress and much more.
