My Uncle was wounded in this battle. John (Jack) Garvey. Trying to find a list of sailors injured on this ship, but have been unsuccessful. Trying to research this for my great nephew.

My father fought at Guadalcanal and wrote his life story which I'm working on to publish. I noticed that you credit your photos as public domain. I'd like to use some of these in the book, but know that I need source and catalog number even though it's permissible to use them. Do you know the sources of these photos? I appreciate your time and help. Thanks, Chuck
