Navy Pacific: Gene Schindler

Gene Schindler started out Dec 7 1941 two days out of Manila where he had been kicked out of radio school for being awol. (Nearly ALL the radio students in class then at Manila later died or were executed by the Japanese). His entire Navy career he could never amass 4 years of good conduct – THUS his “RED” hashmarks instead of “gold”. His first battles were with the Asiatic Fleet and the Java Sea in USS Paul Jones (a four piper can). This story picks up with the USS Gwin. Great story teller and a tremendous history.
