Nicholas Graham served on the U.S.S. Blessman during D-Day, Luzon, and Iwo Jima. He served as a cook and was wounded (shrapnel and burns) after the U.S.S. Blessman was hit by a Japanese bomb off the coast of Iwo Jima where it had just finished dropping off and picking up UDT-15. The grouping also came with letters from a mother who's son died during the explosion; she asked him how her son passed and if he was there....very say.

I couldn't pass it up with all the documentation. My high bid was around $1-2 more than what it went for at the end. I was biting my nails.
Great group. A Navy guy WIA at Iwo, nice!
