William G. (Bud) Bodin was my father. He has since passed away in August of 2009 from pancreatic cancer at his home in Bayfield, Wisconsin.

He has told me many old stories of being on a small island in the Phillippines and working on PT Boat (Packard) engines for about 4 years during his 6 year time in the Navy during WWII. Does anyone out there have any old pictures or stories of him during that time? Can you please share them with me, if you do?

Thank you,
