    He was not on the USS Menard. He was on a tank transport known as LST-839. He was a baker, barber, and gunner during battle.

      I never heard Dad mention being a barber while on the ship. I did hear him speak about the D-day, the day after. He said the beach wasn’t visible to the eye because there were ships lined up side by side all along the beach. Thank you for your comments here all. We miss our Dad so much. He was so creative, jolly, helpful and so many other wonderful verbs.
