    Hi Peggy, my dad also was on the USS Trego and was a Machine Mechanic who worked on the diesel motors. His name was Richard "Dick" Higgins. He is still alive at 88 yrs old. I think he may have been friends with your brother. Is he still alive?

    Hi Suzie! Thank you for contacting me! I am VERY interested! I go on FB using my son's name! Is that okay? Sadly my brother passed in 2005, he had cancer! He is my oldest brother! Did your Dad get hurt on the ship? Peggy.

    Does your Dad remember my brother? Was their ship destroyed or can he remember? I would love to know!

    Dad did not get hurt while on board. He is slowly going through the ship crew list trying to remember who all he did know. The ship was not destroyed but decommissioned after the war was over.

    It would be the best to email Pat as I don't check my email daily. We are getting a few family members to join as we find them to the facebook group.

    I will get in touch with Pat. I hope your Dad remembered my brother. My brother was skinny with black hair and brown eyes! I guess I told you that my brother was a US Page at the US Pentagon after he got well in the Naval hospital!
