My father, Francis E. Drew a.k.a Frenchy or Holly, known to his friends was aboard the Uss Saipan, he was in from 1946-1950. He always spoke with pride and honor regarding his time in the service. I have some pictures that I will share with this site. I just want to thank each and everyone who has and still are serving and protecting our nation. God bless.

My husband Lloyd Cecil Moss served on the Saipan and made the around the world tour 1952-1953.
He was blown off the ship into the Indian Ocean and ironically was rescued by helicopter. I have photos of the rescue. Is anyone out there that has information of this. Cecil died in an automible accident in 1980.
