I volunteered to help the US Navy find relatives of sailors who died on the USS Pompano in September 1943. Stanley Ford Johnson was the son of Ella May Ivins (1878-1969) and Gustaf A. Johnson (1884-1953). He was born March 20, 1916 in Hightstown, New Jersey.
There is a memorial page for Stanley at http://www.oneternalpatrol.com/johnson-s-f.htm
The USS Bowfin Submarine Museum and Park in Honolulu, Hawaii is establishing a Pompano Family Network. Recent developments may prove to be successful in finding out what happened to that submarine, and relatives will be notified if such is the case.
Please let me know if you are a relative or can direct me to one or more relatives so I can find out if they would be willing to be contacted by the Navy. Thank you.
