My Father served in the U.S. Navy from 29 May 1944 and was honorably discharged 27 May 1946. He served on the USS Hunter Liggett most of his time spent on this ship. He had a picture of this ship on the wall and was proud to talk about it. He did not talk about the horror he saw but toward the end of his life told some of what he experienced to me. This picture would mean a lot to me to have not only because of the ship but because actually drove a Higgens landing craft. can I print this off the computer or can I get copies somewhere. I would appreciate some help as to how I can obtain some copies and do it legally! Thank you for reading my story. Sincerely, Penny Flanigan

This image is a product of the US government and so it is in the public domain. That means you own it as much as anyone else. You can use this photo for any purpose you want. Honoring your fathers service sounds like a perfect purpose to me.
