Here is a late update. Everett D. Johnson was a Y3c on the USS Argonne 12/7/41 during the Pearl Harbor attack. His SN is 321-37-51 . He enlisted 8/24/40 .

Kurt

Further thoughts Kurt, The USS Argonne was in the Pacific for the entire Second World War as a repair and supply type ship and only earned one battle star for the Pearl Harbor attack. Johnson probably only served on that ship during that time period. If he signed on in 1940 that means he got his good conduct medal for only 2 years, is that possible ?

Thanks, Fred


Anything just made for collectors just isn't worth collecting.

the enlisment bar only has his name engrave on the reverse. Not as fancy as many of the onse shown previously, but I still love it. The year 1938 is engraved on the front of the bar. Because that date is so close to WWII, I can't help but wonder if he served throughout the war, perhaps being eligible for a second hitch bar. Thanks for looking,

G

I will probably do a thread on this GCM later on, but it needs to be on this thread too. This medal is part of a large grouping.

 

GCM to the Submarine S-38 dated 1928 . The recipient of this medal was present 12/7/41 at Pearl Harbor on a different sub, the USS Narwhal . He served on the Narwhal during her first two patrols. He received a commendation letter for the 2nd patrol.

 

The bars are dated and both have his name engraved on the reverse.

According to St. Louis the records could not be found, i.e. misfiled, misplaced etc. The second award bar is dated 1929.
