7th Division
USMC
USS West Virginia
1944-1945

My dad, Wilbur A. Decker, Sgt. USMC, served on the West Virginia until the end of the war.  I have a photograph of all the crew members standing in front of the ship docked at San Diego on Oct 23, 1945.  It is about 29" x 8.5" & I have no idea how it could be posted.  I also have his certificate for crossing the equator on 10/4/44 signed of course by Neptunus Rex.  It is also an odd size.  If you are interested in these I will make some contacts to see how to get these to the website without destoying the originals. Thank you,    D.Decker.   ps. Will you post info about any upcoming USS West Virginia reunion?  Thanks again.
