The last one in the family. Us Navy Reserve dog tag of S2c Frey, plankowner of DE-405 Uss Dennis, that served during WW2 in the Pacific theatre.
Uss Dennis had an important role during the battle of Samar, credited to sank a japanese heavy cruiser and rescued 434 man form CVE-63 St.Lo.
DE-405 Share a Presidential Unit Citation with all Taffy3 for fighting in this crucial battle.
This is the second dog tag in my collection belonged to a man that served during Battle of Samar.
