Coxswain, USNR
Louis served aboard USS Sheridan from
3 Sep 1943 in San Francisco, Calif.
until 1 Mar 1946 in Chickasaw, Ala.
Through the dedicated efforts of Louis and
Estela Perez, shipmates were contacted and the
first reunion of Sheridan shipmates was held
in 2000. Louie and Stella continued to organize
and attend several more reunions, including the 2006
gathering in San Francisco.
The shipmates recognize and thank them
for their hard work.
