I would never remember who he was except that my father was on the SS President Coolidge when she was sunk during the war, by our own mines. The crew was cited for unloading all the troops and a considerable amount of gear before she finally slipped off the reef they grounded her on.

My father was an ordinary seaman on that ship.  He would eventually, with recommendations attend the Merchant Marine Academy in New London CT, where he met my mom, while becoming a merchant marine officer.
