John Duvernay is the gunner on the left 20mm gun
In WWII, my father, John Duvernay's battle station was the 20mm AA machine gun. I was given by a fellow a copy of the "Naval Ordnance and Gunnery" training manual (May 1944), that was put out by the Bureau of Naval Personnel. It has a great section on the 20mm gun.
John and Pat were married on May 19, 1945, when John was on leave from his ship, the USS STARR (AKA-67)
