THANK YOU! THANK YOU! THANK YOU!

A week ago I posted a photo in this Topic http://www.ptboatforum.com/cgi-bin/MB2/netboardr.cgi?fid=102&cid=101&tid=3420&st=20&nd=30&pg=1&sc=20

Wayne Traxel thought one of the crewmen pictured might be Radarman Eugene Eaton.

Using google and the internet, I found Genes daughters. Gene was not in that picture http://s629.photobucket.com/user/rickas47/media/PT107.jpg.html?sort=3&o=3

BUT - They sent me several photos of Gene and other crew members. Gene is the man front right : http://s629.photobucket.com/user/rickas47/media/PT63Crew2.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1 AND My Father-In-Law is the young man over Genes right shoulder. Torpedoman3c John E Mirus.

This is the only picture we have of my F-I-L from that period What a wonderful discovery.

We would still like to learn the names of the rest of the crew. Hope springs eternal.

Another crew picture Genes daughters sent is here: http://s629.photobucket.com/user/rickas47/media/PT63Crew.jpg.html?sort=3&o=2 Gene is back left and the others are unknown.

Sorry to go so long but I really want to express THANX to the members of this forum.
