Response to SS President Grant-Circa 1942


My Dad was aboard as a US armed guard gunners mate (41 years old at time of enlistment) and crossed the equator on Aug 16 1942 (we have the poster). He went with cargo and troops to Sydney and had to stop and pick up survivors of a battle. I don't know if it was escorted to Australia. I cannot find pictures I know he once had of battle fire on near by ships or exactly when. Later he was on the USS Jose Marti on a run to Archangel and Murmansk in 45 near end of war. He mentioned a ship wreck. maybe he was on the Grant when it ran aground. Maybe in the Caribean? coming from California to New York? My dad's name was Leonard A. McCaffrey
