My dad Horace C. Smith, served aboard the USS Lovering. He joined the Navy in 1944 at age 35,
he could have got a deferment.He didn't think it right for 18 year olds to go when he was willing and able. He and a friend joined on the buddy plan. That didn't work out. He went one way and his friend went another. He sort of became the ships tailor. I think he might have been one of the oldest on the ship. I too, would like to know what campaigns his ship was in.
Hello. My brother, Clarence Vernon Tollefson,SO1 served aboard the USS Lovering 1944-1945. Hoping to contact any shipmates from that time. I'm also interested in specifics on her compaigns in the Pacific. Reach me at: Ozzie Tollefson, email@example.com Thank you very much.
My Dad, Robert E. Mills served on the Lovering. He was very proud to have done so and some of the fondest memories of his life were of this ship and the friends he had there.I heard many wonderful and humorous stories growing up and Dad just loved telling them over and over. He passed away a few years ago and I just wanted to say thank you for making this part of his life so memorable.
