S2 George Jenks Beaman
Learn about upgrading this memorial...
Birth: 1924
Death: Nov. 13, 1942

George Jenks Beaman, Seaman 2C USN, enlisted in the Navy at the age of 19, shortly after the outbreak of war with Japan. After George received his boot training, he was assigned to the Juneau and assisted in "breaking" the commission pennant, which he sent to his mother in Brooklyn.

After the Battle of Guadalcanal and the loss of the Cruiser Juneau on November 13, 1942, George's family was initially notified that he was considered "missing in action." In the summer of 1943, the family was notified by the Secretary of the Navy, Frank Knox, that George was now considered to have been "killed by enemy action."

Secretary Knox declared that the men who died on the Juneau had "upheld the highest tradition of the United States Navy," and that their bravery "will long be remembered by a grateful people."

In memory of all those gallant men of the USS Juneau (CL-52) who made the ultimate sacrifice to win the Battle of Guadalcanal and will be "forever on station" with their ship. God bless you for fighting for free men everywhere
