USNR dog tag: battle of Samar

Recommended Posts

Dear friends,


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.post-154044-0-38530200-1569611794_thumb.jpg
