USNR dog tag - ATC, Uss Bunker Hill

Recommended Posts



Let me show you the latest USNR dog tag addition to the collection.

He belonged to a sailor who served on BUNKER Hill (CV-17) from May '43 to August '44.

Checking further data online I found information on this 3 wars veteran: WW2, Korea and Vietnam, served as ATC ( https://www.findagrave.com/memorial/41348501/hofeditz )

Found this name in WW2 memorial (no middle name here but birth place correspond)


Im not able to find info about his rank during WW2 + any additional info about Korea and Vietnam story, if some one can add some other info

Thank you in advance

29 Aug 1944 he is an AMM3c on the BH. He was leaving the BH transferring to the nearest Fleet Air Command.

Oh, tarry and be strong; Tell God in prayer. What is thy hidden grief; Thy secret care.

Yet, if no answer come; Pray on and wait: God's time is always best; Never too late.
