I see a lot of military input, and even Japanese perspective. How about input from the Attuans themselves, those who lost everything? There are still a few Attuans left, and I'd really like to see how THEY remember things.

C. at Attu Kiska and Adak. He brought home a translated copy of this diary. I wonder if all of the GI's were given a copy? Scot Novak

If anyone out there has any information about Clarence, (Dig) Fridley, or the last flight of Bomber 31, I'd love to hear from you and to share the information with them. Thanks.

I was just curious about Attu. My younger brother has just joined the U.S. Coast Guard and just recently got stationed in Attu, from Kodiak. My interest was jump started by wondering where in the world my little brother was going to be. I guess I just needed to know the history and to know that he was going to be okay on his new journey in life. Besides, what are big sisters for, right? I enjoyed the site, and most likely will be back to learn more about Attu. Thank you. Laura Henry

My father Lt. Richard W. Burch (from Bonita, CA) flew with the 28th Composite Grp/73rd Bomb Sqd. Adak & Amchitka. Was only there briefly May to Aug. 1943. Might have flown a B-25 called "The Fickle Finger of Fate". Have located Stan Borucki, who was on my father's crew. Would love to find more information about my father's time in the Aleutians. He was KIA 6-20-44, flying B-17 with the 91stBG/324thSqd during a mission over Hamburg, Germany.

Yes, I still have my photos and a ATTU Horny Bird coffee cup. I remember the temps ranged from +23F to +64F during the 358 days I was there. Great fishing!

Reeves flew me in for 48 hours of fishing with some of my troops at Det 1, Shemya,circa1966.The wx soured and we were there around 5 days. My Sgt Major and I hiked up the river, occasionally stopping to fish for trout that inhabited the upland water. We walked all the way into the landing site bay (Battle of Attu) The landing craft were still there just as they were left in the 1940s. A beautiful and mysterious place full of memories and, surprizingly, life.

I am looking for any information concerning my uncle John Karner from Wampum PA who was killed in the battle of Attu during WWII. I know very little about him nor do I know what division of the army he served. I only know that he was killed in action. I was hoping someone who served during that time would recognize the name and share some info on how he was killed and the type of person he was.

Very interesting sight. I was checking the sight out because my son, HS2 Ryan Leverenz is in the USCG, stationed at Kodiak. He will be going to Attu in March for 30 days as a replacement for the corpsman there. He is looking forward to the trip as he will be walking on the same ground that his grandfather, Albert Cole Leverenz, walked on while he was stationed in the Army at Attu during WWII. While checking out the sight I found others who had relatives stationed with the USCG at Attu at the present time.

Clarence "dig" Fridley was my great uncle. He was only married for a short time, prior to his death. It was nice to have to have closer in his death. Our family has wondered for a long time, what happened to him. Most of our clan settled in the Eureka area of California. I noticed some questions in the guest book about the family line. You can e-mail me if you have questions.

Great site. I was stationed at CG Lorsta Adak from '66 to '67. Recently I met a veteran of the battle. He told me of his experience, of wading ashore in leather boots, and then getting frostbite. Of having no place to get out of the weather; they couldn't use the caves the Japanese had used because they had used flamethrowers. He was active in getting the WWII veteran's memorial erected in Olympia. A salute to all of you who served in any capacity during those miserable years.

WE stopped at Attu during a fishery patrol in the Gulf of Alaska while I was stationed on USCGC Venturous in 1975. We hiked around and had some beers with the Loran station guys. I wouldn't mind going back. My hat goes off to all the Americans who served there during WWII.

He's buried in Detroit, Michigan at Mount Olivet Cemetery at 6 Mile Road & Van Dyke. Uncle Ray was assigned with the 17th Infantry, 7th Infantry Division out of Fort Ord, California...

I was on USS SanFrancisco, covering the landing. I saw two planes collide over the harbor, one crashed and sank immediatly, the other with a damaged left aileron, managed to get to the runway, cut the engine as the wheels touched down. As the wings lost lift, the pilot, lept out, landing on his feet running in giant strides at 40 or fifty miles an hour(?) and out distanced the plane as it winged over and crumpled to a stop. Would be great if someone knows more of that story, who the pilot was, etc

I was stationed on Attu from Feb 69 to Dec 69, my first unit after boot camp. Had a great summer and managed to get a lot of "Boon-Docking" in... found one cave and tons of 1944 & 45 "Stuff" all over the place. And in winter saw what 110 mile and hour (or at least that is where the "whirly-gig" disintegrated") looks like... remember having to get Tech's out to realign the tower. Lots of exploring... which filled in the time... waiting to leave!

My father, Franklin Ross, served aboard the USS ATTU (CVE-102) as Aviation Ordinance Man 3rd lass V6. He passed away on 9 January 2003. One of the gifts I have is the opportunity to thank him for his service and sacrifice during our reunion on the previous Thanksgiving. He never talked much about his service - only generalities. That Thanksgiving, he offered to share the history of his time in the Navy. He died before that became reality. I am grateful for his sacrifice and all those that serve our nation.

smitty, i really like this website. i heard about Attu on a PBS (I think) documentary. I have dreamed since then of putting together an "expedition" to Attu to tour, commemorate, and honor our soldiers who lived there. Perhaps it's a crazy idea, and I'm just getting started on it. I'm 36 and my dad is a huge WWII student. My dream would be to take him to Attu for a week (outside of winter!). wayne

I was there from 5/62 to 5/63. Our CO was John Irwin, our XO was Dale Strohecker. Bob Reeves of Reeves Aleutian Airways came Attu see the map of his airline route we made on a 4 x 8 sheet of plywood, copied from a matchbook cover. He autographed his book "Glacier Pilot" for me while he was there. His daughters served as stewardesses. If anyone who served from 1962 to 1963 reads this, I would sure appreciate a return email. Attu is not an experience one would forget.

Did a full tour on Attu in the late 70's with the USCG. . Now live in Frankfort Michigan and ran into an ATTU veteran by accident. Found out that there was a reunion of Attu vets in 02 somewhere in Indiana. So I Called up Mr. Don Jones gave him 1200 slides and about 500 pictures of my tours on the rock and told him that any vet that wanted a picture he saw could have it, just give it to him..... That rock changed a lot of men's lives, as it changed mine.... ME

We made a scenverage hunt to Attu and Sheyma looking for old generator parts. Very intresting place- kind of frozen in time. You have a fine site-keep up the good work. Any of you old mob 9 guys that was on the rock in 61 give me a shout. Keep on truckin!!

My dad, Stanley Montandon was on Attu in 1943 with the 4th infantry. He would not talk much about it except that he had burried quite a few of his buddies during his time there. Also, there was a tree that the men had built. Trees would not grow on Attu and they were missing home. If anyone knew him, please email me.

The remotness of the Aleutians has fascinated me, and I checked out a web map and discovered the remotest part was Attu. It's a brilliant website, and so good to learn the history of it. Also like the fact that you have to be dragged kicking and screaming into each new year! Great

I know my grandfather, Floyd Sutherland was a WWII vet and fought in the Aleutian Island campaign...I am almost positive he was at Attu...I was told he was never the same after he returned home to Missouri, he had severe frostbite and nearly lost both feet, he suffered with circulation problems the rest of his life. He never wanted to discuss the war and I only learned of his service through local newspaper clippings my grandmother kept. I hope his service to our country will never be forgotten.

Stationed on Attu in 65-66 as an engine man. I still remember it almost every day. Saw Brinkman's name, we were there at about the same time. I've always wondered what happened the cook who fell off the cliff-I think his name was Horstman-may not be spelled correctly.

My 94 year old second cousin told me a story about his friend who was a ham radio operator. His name was Foster Jones. My cousin helped him to learn how to set up the radio that informed them of the invasion. A tragic story that has several versions. When Mrs. Foster Jones came back to NJ she said that the Japanese killed her husband. He has copies of correspondence from the couple. Very interesting story.

Thanks for the information. I was fooling around on a map program and found Attu Island. I wish to offer thanks to all who served and are serving there. Not to mention all our service people. God Bless you all for holding freedom's torch high. Not all forget that freedom isn't free.

My Grandfather was stationed on Attu and was on a bomber squadron of seven planes, I think. His plane did not return from its bombing mission. It was presumed to have gone down in the ocean. About 5 years ago it was found on Kamchatka Penn. in Russia. This past November our family were privileged to go to Wa. DC to see him buried in Arlington Cemetary. His name was Donald Lewallen. Mom has more accurate details. This is a very short version. Mom is Donna Atkins, email:doubled@clatskanie.com for more info.

I was USCG MK II stationed on Attu from 80-81. Had a good time. Enjoyed the hiking, fishing, old remote battlefields-looked like the soldiers had been there about 10 years earlier instead of 40. Anyone who fought on Attu deserved a medal. Wild weather-saw 160 mph winds on the speed indicator. My most fond Coast Guard memory was the experience of Attu. I think of it often and feel blessed to have been there-through the good and bad.

I am the historian for the 65th Artillery. I believe the 65th had three batteries of 155mm's on Attu as well as the 255th AAA (3 batteries) from 1943-44. If anyone has information on this, please contact me. Nice web site.

Trying to get more info on my grandpa's time in the service in the years 1944-1946? I am putting together a scrapbook about his time in the Seabeess. He went to serve in Attu early 1945, was Seabee with Battalion 114. I wish he was computer literate--I think he would love to look at all these comments and browse the websites. Thanks for the hard work!

My Father, Waldo Boehner, was in the Aleutians during the years of 42 and 43. He was a mess sergeant and try as I will, I have not been able to get him to open up about it. I do know he was on Attu at some point in time as he has mentioned it. If there are any vets out there who might remember him, I would really appreciate hearing from you. You can reach me at the above address. Responses from those with info only please.

If any one has info on anymore reunions at Pima Air Museum in Tucson,Az., Please let me know by e-mail. Or if anyone remembers him. Unfortunately, He passed on Dec.21st,1999. PS. He looked similar to Col. Erickson,Who he used to talk about.

My father, deceased 8/6/93, served in the Scout company of 7th Div, 32 Inf. Reg., 3rd Battalion, I Company. He arrived at Atttu from California via submarine USS Shirkhoff (sp.) and paddled ashore Scarlet beach in a raft deployed from another submarine on May 11, 1943. I remember him describing the incredible 'cold and wet' he experienced. He survived unwounded to serve later at Kwajalein, Leyte and Okinawa where he earned the Bronze Star. Thanks to all who served at Attu in 1943.

Very good information on Attu and Joseph P. Martinez.I'm writing a screenplay for a feature film on Attu. So far the research is the most important work. I'm on page five and the story is developing as something like "Saving Private Ryan",.However there is alot of snow in the scenes, mountain climbing and more. I'm very proud to write about a our troops and the residents of Attu experienced. Attu will not be forgotten. Pedro Olivares polivares2004@yahoo.com

USCG Lorsta Attu 1968-1969 Just one of the 35 "Coasties" and 5 Air Force who have been stationed on Attu over the years. My job as ET3 was Loran A maintenance as well as the UHF FM comm link to Shemya which we used to reach the NORAD line and the cherished phone calls home. My year on the island was hard like the weather and yet is one of the places I'd dearly love to visit again.

My late father-in-law, Elmer Gervais, served in the Army and shipped out of San Franciso in May of 1942? or 41? I just read a moving piece written by either he or someone he knew titled "The Ballad of Attu". Has anyone ever heard of it? Mentions names like Goldstein,Bunikor, Bill McCloud, Curly Lake, Harry Groon.

I like to know about the Ballad of Attu. If there is a song. Save it in a special place. I'm a screenwriter writing on the Island of Attu during 1942 to 1943 years. Japanese force were driven out by our troops, liberating American occupied territory.. The song and any other songs can be useful for any film production based on a true story of Attu. Screenwriters have to show the picture in writing as they see the events unfolding. polivares2004@yahoo.com

I was talking with my father Robert Churma, who will be 85 in January. He was part of Fleet Wing 4 and was in a group called VP42. He spent his whole tour of duty in the Aleutians. He was stationed at Attu, Cold Bay, Dutch Harbor and Kodiak. He told me of one episode during his stay when the plane he was in chased a Kodiak with a machine gun . Later word got back that it ran through one of the villages and there was some reprimands going around.

My Dad, LCDR J.Robert Close, was a flight surgeon with Fleet Airwing Four and served on Attu during WWII. He passed away in 1999 and had had a wonderful career as an orthopaedic surgeon. His greatest pride, though, was in his service in the Navy, particularly on Attu. . He inspired me to serve as a naval aviator, and I'm looking at LCDR Close's official navy photos of PBY's and PV1's as I write this. I hope to hear from other gents who knew my dad. Thanks for this great web page. - J. Close Jr.

Excellent Website! I cannot tell you how much I appreciate the information you have collected. I am 22 years old, though my grandfather, Howard, died on Attu receiving both the Silver Star and Purple Heart. I will be traveling through Alaska this summer and dream of making it to Attu if I can find a way to get there? If anyone knows of a way, please contact me. Thank you and thanks again for this website. Jonathan Lee

A wonderful website! My grandfather, Cale Garrison Lewis who was in Company F, 17th Infantry, died at the battle of Attu on Mary 19, 1943. I'm hoping to find others who may have served with him. I also have a unit photo which may be of interest to others.

My father Victor Peolau was there in the Army . I recently got his footlocker and found the patch with the bear and star. He never really talk about what he did. What I do know he was a Spec. 5 and I think he was a radio operator. It must of been tough for all of the men. He never wanted to say much. I dont even know what unit he was in. So if there anybody that remembers him, you can e-mail me at Peplau9@yahoo.com. Thanks Marvin Peplau .

My father, William "Bill" Boscamp passed away on June 23, 2000 in Eagle River, Wisconsin where he lived in retirement for over 22 years. He left us with many memories of his army days and the many kind men he met in the course of serving his country. God bless you all and thank God for your service. Don Boscamp

My Father was Joe Hudson of the 68'th Seabees. He passed away in 1991. All my life the photos he brought back from Attu have facinated and interested me. He drove a truck and a "Cat" and worked with a drill gang on Alexai Pt. airfield with Spencer, Kelly, Hington, & Barry. There is a photo of Chiefs Schunar & Barker, Andy Fox, and Jack Boyd. If there is anyone who knew him then or just wants to exchange some info. please feel free to get in touch with me. photographs.

Enjoying this information and the photos very much. My father, Joe Klak, (deceased 1995) was a photographer with Fleet Air Wing Four during WW II stationed in the Aleutians. We have many more photos from this time/location that his outfit took.

I am writing on behalf of Dolores, as she has no computer. Does anyone remember her husband, Santos Ayela Suarez Jr. from Corpus? He was in the Aleutians and saw fighting from Aug 16, 1941-Oct 11, 1945. Then I believe, he was shipped to Ft Benning, GA where he was qualified as a Parachutist. He was an Apache Indian and his family would like to know what happened to him in AK. He served Aleutians & Korea 4/42-11/44 Induct Ft Sam Houston TX 8/16/41 PFC INF S-R45 Prchts 6/22/45 SEP Ft Benning GA 10/45 No record of Unit. Endured cold, terrible conditions causing leg circulatory problems. Had PTSD. Was Airborne Infantry attached to 73rd Glider division with the 503rd Airborne in Corregidor on The Rock?
