Name: Richard Charitat
Date: 2000-01-01
Crewmember? Yes/My dad.
From: Houston, Texas
Comments: My father was wounded on the 794 during the invasion of Okinawa. He had already won a purple heart when he had been wounded earlier in the war on LST 354, near Vella LaVella (1943). He turned down the second purple heart, (probably saw no point in it.) My aunt was "surfing the web" recently, she entered her last name, and your site came up. Sure enough, it mentions my father being wounded on April 7th. I think your web site is great, and full of very useful information. I"m going to try and get my dad that second purple heart while he is still alive. The data on your site will help a great deal.Richard Charitat
