    Seeking information about Father while in Navy

    Paula Wyss Newbie

      My father served in the US Navy approximately 1942-45. He served either on a Battleship or a Destroyer. I have pictures of him on the ship. Is there a way to find out the name of the ship? He was given the flag from his ship even though he was not First Mate. My father passed away in 1957 when I was 8 years old. I have no other records. His name was Wallace Clyde Rowan. The number on his dog tag is: 939 06 34. It also has T4-44 along with USNR.

       

      I am gifting this flag to my son, now a Navy veteran himself & wanted to offer some history to go with it. Can you tell me how to go about finding any records? Thank you in advance.

       

      Sincerely,

      Paula Rowan Wyss
