And What Was Bob Doing 74 Years Ago Today ...

Being back stateside after a tour in the South Pacific, Lt. Commander Henry Montgomery, Jr. appears almost giddy.  Hey, what's a month in the hospital with a severe case of dengue fever, if it means being sent home to recuperate.  It's May 16, 1943.  Bob has been assigned to duty in Seattle, where he stays until August, before being assigned to Terminal Island in Los Angeles.  Yeah, that is one happy sailor.
