My father, Nicanor Pena, was a crew member of the SS Malama when it was sunk during WWII. He spoke infrequently of his experiences so I, too, am piecing together the history. I have a crew list and a photo of the ship that was given to me by Matson Navigation Company a number of years ago.
Let me know if you would like to exchange info.
