WWII USN PhM1c USS J. Franklin Bell (APA-16)
The third and last of some old Pharmacist mate Navy Jumpers photos, this one belonged to a sailor who was on the USS J. Franklin Bell (APA-16), an attack transport that served in many amphibious operations including Tarawa, Aleutian Landings, Kwajalein, Saipan, Tinian, Leyte, and Okinawa. An incredible war record and well deserved Amphibious Forces SSI.
