US Navy World War II Veteran, 1942-1945

Served in the Pacific Theater of Operations.

Navy rank believed to be Seaman 1st class.

Elmer served in navigation on the USS Barnes which was a flat top carrier escort.

The major task of the USS Barnes throughout World War II was the transporting of aircraft and personnel from the United States to the forward areas of the Pacific. In addition the ship served as a combat, training and pilot qualifying carrier.

While performing these duties she launched her planes on several raids against Tarawa Atoll in the Gilbert Islands operation from 20 November–5 December 1943.

Elmer worked for Bell Telephone Company from 1941-1984. This included the 3 years he spent in the US Navy as the telephone company counted his navy years as service years for them.
