Are there any servicemen out there who served on the U.S.S. Barnett during WWII?
A copy of her WWII Cruise Book is for sale on eBay but is NOT cheap.
My Grandfather served on the Barnett, but has passed away. I have his Cruise Book from WW II, and his certificate for crossing the Equator.
Yes, my grandfather served. Melvin "Rusty" Crutcher. We are searching the web for information on his shipmates and service. Would love to connect with service members. Rusty is doing well and interested to see how some of his former shipmates are doing.

Hey Amy Morris,
Your Grandfather more than likely served on the Barnett after my father(William Green Bryan Jr.) My father was a shipfitter(welder). I see in my USS Barnett cruise book that your grandfather must have worked as a storekeeper or ship's serviceman. There is a pic of him and all the guys he worked with. Would be glad to send you a copy of the pic if you want it. That is if I am able to do it. Computer problems and all. My email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. My name is Ann Bryan Delacruz. Just let me know.
My father was on the USS Barnett for about 3 years during WWII. He died in 2002. I recently found the "journal" he kept then, which was basically a line for each debarkation, embarkation, and invasion. Sicily, South of France, Guadalcanal, Okinawa, Normandy
