We are extremely saddened to hear of the passing of one of our World War II vets this last weekend. Edwin Cramer passed on February 13, 2016 at the Meadow Brook Medical Care Facility. Edwin was on board the USS Batfish for the 3, 4, 5, 6, & 7 war patrols. Shown below, Edwin is featured in the famous shot of the crew to commemorate the sinking of three submarines in 76 hours.
This leaves only two World War II veterans left from the USS Batfish crew. Please take the time to document and listen to any World War II veteran that you may know.
Here is a link to Edwin's obituaryhttp://www.mortensenfuneralhomes.com/…/obitua…/obituary.cfm…
The visitation is tomorrow at 12:00 pm and the funeral is at 2:00 pm.
The Muskogee War Memorial Park would like to thank Edwin and all other veterans for their sacrifice to preserve our freedom.
Sailor, rest your oar. We have the watch
