USS Ingraham DD-444
Message Board

June 3, 2019

I have started a search on my family history and I am hoping to get information on my uncle. He was on the USS Ingraham DD-444. All of my relatives has since passed so I basically am starting from scratch. My uncle, Irenee Cloutier, was my mother's brother. We have no photos of him, no anything. I am hoping that perhaps you or the government do. Any help is greatly appreciated.
