Where are you from?: Nordland, WA
Years aboard Gurke: 1945-1946
Comments: I am the son-in-law of George Barker. George passed away on December 15, 2000 and while I was going through his papers I came across his military records and found that he served on the USS GURKE from what appears to be 1945 to 1946. I only wish I would have thought to find this information out before Dad passed away. I think he would have enjoyed communicating with some ole shipmates! Robert McIntosh
