    There he was trained with particular responsibilities for steering and signals as a quartermaster on the USS LST 877. Before he was honorably discharged on March 6, 1946, Al earned several prestigious medals, including the Victory Medal, American Area Campaign, Point System and the Asiatic Pacific Area Campaign Medal (1 Star).
