One of the issues he and Idiscussed was the picture I have attached. He often said that he wishedthat whom ever had possession of the American flag in this picture wouldhave it in their heart to loan or donate it to the Museum in Ga. Iunderstand there is a wall mural of this picture in the museum. He wasnot sure who had this flag last and was concerned that as the generationspassed that the significance of this piece of history would diminish. The history as I recall was that the flag was drawn on a white sheet withcolored pencils given to the POWs by the civilians during the liberation,someone correct me if I am wrong. I need your help in circulating thise-mail in hopes that someone will know the whereabouts of this archive.
I have attached the roster of the boat but unfortunately that is all Ihave to go on. Any help you can provide would be very beneficial, I knowyou have many contacts in the submarine league. I have also included thelink to the POW museum in case anyone is interested. Please include mye-mail address in your correspondence.I am still working on making my way through the DVDs you did of dad, itis hard and I can only watch so much at a time.The link to the museum is http://www.nps.gov/ande/contacts.htmSincerely,Jeanna Johnson SmithU.S.S.
