A message from crewman Leo
Decounter's son, Douglas:
I would like any information on exact dates
of my father service on the San Juan, division information, battle
stations or any other comments. I am currently working on a model of
the San Juan as she appeared at the Battle of Santa Cruz, Oct.23,1942.
If any vets could offer any details on the exact location of the bomb
hit, or any other details of the ship, I would be very grateful.
I can be reached at
