USS Mississinewa AO-59

Tranquilino Gonzales, Jr., S2c ID’d in crew photo

The granddaughter of crewman Tranquilino Gonzales, Jr., S2c recently identified her grandfather in the Mississinewa Crew Photo. Lisa Peralta Bell remembered her grandfather in a post on the Mississinewa Facebook page on the anniversary of the ship’s sinking. Since we had never been in contact with the Gonzales family, we reached out to Lisa who not only identified her late grandfather, but who also supplied a portrait photo that has been attached to Tranquilino’s crew listing. Thank you, Lisa.
