U.S.S. Oklahoma

Boxrucker, Lawrence

We joined the navy at Oakland, California in 1940. After fireman school at Dearborn he reported for duty on the Okie, the rest is now history. We can only guess how it would have been to grow old together.

This has been a rather stressful week for me, losing sleep and trying to say something that will make some sense to you.
