My grandfather, Albert Joseph Whittingham (1926-2007), served in the Navy during WWII. I do not know where he actually served or anything. I would like to honor him on his profile. There is even a photo of him in his navy uniform on his profile! I tried the stickers and things, but I am failing.
I believe he served 1944-46. He did not turn 18 until Sep 1944.
EDIT: Ok, this is what I have found so far:
22 Nov 1944: WWII Navy Enlistment.
Served on the USS Duluth CL-87 and the USS Topeka CL-67.
On March 31, 1945, it says next to his military number: S2c SV-6. What does that mean?
He was discharged on July 5, 1946.
I do not know what his rank was or where and when he served.
I appreciate any help. I have never worked with any vets files, so I do not know what to look for or where to look for it.
Thank you so much!!
