This is a picture of me and three of my Chilton ship mates taken Jan 5.1944, I can't remember exactly where we were at the time but their name's were: starting on the left going clock wise:

James Beckwith, Cook from Tyrone,Pa.  Joseph A. Creely, Baker from  Missouri, Arthur Trombly, Coxswain  from Maynard, Mass and (me) Nate Cerniglia, F1c,Schenectady,NY. I had not turned 17 yet.

This picture was stamped  "passed by Naval Censor" but does not say anything else on it and my very poor memory doesn't help either, and having served on two other ship's it's difficult to remember, too many senior moments'
