I received this great Email from Frank "Bugsy" Moran from the restored cg40450/cg40581.

I'm sending you this because I know you will love it. I met this man's son Joe JR. in the doctors office when I was reading my CG manual for the cg40450. He sit next to me and then said were you in the CG? I

said yes, why? I see that book your reading and it looks old and official. So it went on "low and behold" his father served in World War 11 on the 83324/cg474 in the Pacific theater, like Bataan, Leyte and all around there.   Read the history of Joseph E. Mutascio, Sr. aboard the 83324.

These images are are from a large mural at the Museum of History and Industry, Seattle, Wa. from the 1950's. They might help with some flashbacks of the Ballard Locks and the CG District headquarters, Seattle.
