Great! That is definatley him, because he worked on freighters before the war for a short time. Is this the only ship he appears on? Also, do you know what D.B. stands for?

As for his death certificate from the Dade County courthouse, I dont know where to start. That is true that he may have had a SS# issued towards the end of his life, but every time I tried to call the Dade County records offices it was a recording and it sounded like they only had more recent records, such as tax records, land records, etc. from the late 1970s up.

How would I check to see if he filed for VA benifits? Is there a number to call?

Thank you very, very much for your help!
