USS Helena part 1

I really have a treat for you today!  After weeks of working with Daddy’s Naval records and reading everything I can get my hands on in order to place his story within history, I hope you are going to enjoy what you see and read.  Daddy rarely talked about his Navy years so my information has come from information passed down by other Helena sailors, historical records, and information I received by writing the National Personnel Records Center and requesting Daddy’s Naval records.

Due to the volume of information I have put together, Daddy’s years on the Helena will be divided into three parts.  Part one covers from September 18, 1939 until March 2, 1940.  Once again, please read the story first so that the pictures on the PowerPoint will make sense to you.

I would really love for you to share your thoughts, especially through Facebook since that platform will allow dialog!
