MessageMy father served on the uss boston ca69 as a radio operator during wwii. I have a question that i would like to ask. Does anyone know where i can get a picture of the radio room onboard the uss boston ca69 that was taken during the war? I have been searching for this for over seven(7) years now to no avail. Would appreciate hearing from anyone who may have some info.
Thanks
