As a new member, I'm still trying to find my way around the forum, post pictures and put things in the right places. Please bear with me.
All said, with it being Veterans Day I wanted to post this picture of QM1C Gayhart LaRoche. LaRoche was killed when the USS Leopold sank off the coast of Iceland. He is one of the 600 Coast Guard sailors to die in action during WW 2. A brave man in a branch of service that is sometimes overlooked. After his death, his wife, Margaret Hannay LaRoche joined the Coast Guard in his memory. This photograph is from her personal photo album.
