Here are the first two audio files of my grandfather talking about his PT experience:

1. Joining Squadron 23
2. To the Pacific with PT 285

These were recorded in 2010 when he was 93. There are a few names and numbers that are misremembered or misspoken. When I get around to transcribing these I'll be able to note those; it's a bit hard to do anything like that with audio presentations. The main one in this set is where he refers to the Colombia River, which must have been the Magdalena.

Ethan,
Thanks a lot for posting your grandfathers audio stories, really enjoyed hearing them. Glad you were able to record them before he passed away.
