Glenn Certificate

The USS Block Island had the distinction of being the only American Carrier sunk in the Atlantic Ocean and Glenn just happened to be on it.  They were taken to Casa Blanca for a time until they were transferred back to the states for re-assignment!  Glenn was transferred to the Pacific Fleet when he returned but the war came to a close shortly after his transfer.  Hope you enjoyed this bit of family history!  We are so proud of Glenn and his service to our Country! 

Thanks once again for checking in and have a wonderful week, Joe
