My dad told me that that Peterson, they called Mattress Back, because anytime he had a spare minute he was sleeping, any where he could.  Also that Johnson (my dad couldn’t remember his first name, I said come on it was only 60 years ago!!),  taught my dad to weld.  He said he was a teacher before he got in the Navy, and was very talented.  My dad to this day is a very good welder, and attributes this to that guy.    Jan
