Good day everyone!!
My name is Philip Caruso and I'm currently on active duty in the Navy stationed with Commander Carrier Strike Group 10, home ported in Norfolk, VA. I am currently deployed aboard the USS Dwight D. Eisenhower. I have been in the Navy for just over 18 years.
I am not the family of any survivor nor any of the original crew. However, my grandfather did serve in World War 2 in the Navy and he was stationed on board the USS Fanshaw Bay during the battle of Leyte Gulf. I love history of the Navy and I love telling it's stories and keeping the tradition alive anyway I can. Someday I would love to attend the reunion as a supporter.
Thank you again for allowing me to join the group!
