FROM HIS LOVING

SON

JIM LOWARY


I have attached a photo of some of my father's shipmates.You may use this picture if you like.

Hi Paul

I was looking through the USS Oakland shipmates and clicked on Edgar J. Lowary.  I saw a picture of his shipmates and my father identified one of them as Walter B. Heatherly I am sending you the photo with his name on it.  My dad isn't sure but
he might be the sailor on the very top.  John J. Penharth, but we're not sure. I hope this will help out or maybe you already have ID's for the other sailors. If you do,
I'd like to know who all of them are.

Yours truly,  Christine (Penharth) Kleber

FROM THE OFFICERS AND CREW
OF THE USS OAKLAND CL/CLAA-95


SO PROUDLY WE SERVED
Requiescat in pace!            May he rest in peace!
