I picked up an ephemera group that belonged to Ensign Wetmore USN. The box of papers was 25 pounds. I will post some of what I found Wetmore had been a Merchant Marine before the war and had time in the USMC Reserve before that. When The war breaks out he received a commission as an Ensign Navigator and is assigned to the newly converted USS Crater. The USS Crater was being built as a Liberty ship and was converted to a Navy Transport Ship. Wetmore was a part of the first crew to sail her. When Ensign Wetmore is transfered he took the first four pages of his Navigator logs. This the first and last pages that are a part of every order he ever recieved from 1942-45. This is the stack of orders. This is a Marine invasion map of Iwo Jima I found in all of this.
