  • Notes 
    • Bill Holliday learned his trade while in the Navy Seabees serving as an Electricians Mate. He told his story in these brief comments when discharged:

      Holliday, William F., EM 2/c, 146th Seabees, Mystic.
      "We went in early at Normandy, and served as a supply outfit for many Navy units operating there. It was hot work for a while but we completed our assignment okay. Before going to Europe, I'd spent 14 months in Iceland with the 28th Sea- bees. After Europe I went out to the Pacific to Okinawa where we also handled a supply depot. I'd seen enough of the world to suit me for a while when I finally headed for home and a discharge."
