I'm looking for veterans who may have served with my friend Ray Gettman aboard CVE 93 USS Makin Island in the Pacific. Ray flew an Avenger torpedo bomber. He's 88 yrs old now. Anybody out there who was shipmates or crew member? Thanks..Mark Z.

You may be able to look up ships crews. And there is also a link for ship reunions which may provide info on surviving crew members.
