I am Charles Schiedel's daughter and he was one of the crew members of the USS Mountrail. One of my cousins who is interested in the history of his father's and uncles' war experiences, looked up the Mountrail and found your web site.
Dad is now 90 years old and seeing all the faces, the ship, ports, etc. brought back many memories......Some he hadn't thought about in many years.
Thank you and the others for taking the time to put together this tribute to the memory of the ship and all it meant to the men on board. Dad loved the chance to reminice.
I have attached a picture of Dad when he was on the USS Mountrail.
He was a Shipfitter 2nd Class with Damage Control.
