Hello Guys and Gals:

I was looking for any information on Lt.(jg) Brenton W. Creelman. All I have is he was killed in Action and was a Skipper of a PT BOAT. I have information that does list him as KIA and winner of the PURPLE HEART, but no RON and NO BOAT. Thanks in advance............

Thanks so much. I just met his nephew who has some photographs of the boat after it hit the mine, and crew photos, letters and his purple heart. I am supposed to go over his home soon. I want to provide as much information as I can..............
