USS Nevada Album



I recently got a bunch of stuff my grandfather collected while he was in the Navy during the 1930's and '40's. The neatest thing was this very cool leather bound album he had while he served on the USS Nevada in the Panama Canal zone in the mid '30's. It's full of pictures of the ship and his shipmates. It also has the log he kept while at sea.



He also had a bunch of cool Navy battleship postcards which were in pretty good shape considering their age. These two of the Indianapolis and the West Virginia are two of my favorites.





I really loved getting this stuff and I'm proud that he served so well during his time in the service.
