Looking for LST 697 Shipmates

My father in law served in WWII on LST 697 from 1943-1945. He loves telling stories about helping navigate the ship by the stars, being held over the side of the ship with ropes so that he could paint the numbers '697' on the side and of running dice games onboard. We would love it if anyone knows of any shipmates that we could hook him up with to talk about old times.

We will look forward to the museum returning to the South so that we can drive him over to visit for a day.
