Z-437703, A-4414-19609, Merchant Marine
I was in the Merchant Marine in World War II. My "Z" # was (and I suppose still is) Z-437703 and my "A" # was A-4414-19609. I wonder if things are as they were in World War II, do we still use US Shipping Commissioners at "Sign Off" on Return from Foreign Voyages? Does anyone have a copy of a set of Ship's Articles as were used in WWII?
I have always known we were never properly recognized even after the official designation as veterans in 1988. I'M ONLY 82 NOW....
