Glen arrived in Boston from Springfield, Il and reported to the ship on the 6th of August, 1943 (about 5 weeks after her Commissioning.) He was part of the Signal Gang, and was a pal of my father (William Kelly) and Roland Tougas, among others. [Several snapshots of Glen are in my dad's photo album.]
He was transferred off the ship on Dec. 26, 1945, after serving Occupation Duty off the shores of Japan.
