Request -- Information about my Grandfather SFC/DV
Question -- Hello.  My Grandpa was a Ship Fitter Chief and a navy diver in 1941 to 1961.  He recovered men and did underwater welding.  His name was Charles "Monte" Shelton Montgomery and he passed away when I was 13 and I want to know how I can get more information about his career, especically during WW2.  There was some talk in my family about Subic Bay and a hull repair after a torpedo.  He was a great inspiration to me when I was in the service.  I would appreciate any info you can give me.

Request -- Verfication of NAUI card from former USN instructor/Corpsman
Question -- I attended and graduated 2nd class diver school in Key West, FL from around Sep 1971 to Feb/Mar 1972. One of the instructors, a Navy Corpsman and also a diver or SEAL, was a NAUI instructor as well and he issued us NAUI Advance cards after we completed the class. I think his name was Ron or Rob Holden or something similar to that. I'm almost sure his first name was Ron. I want to get back into recreational diving and lost my old paper issued NAUI advance diver card. Since then NAUI has moved from Ontario, CA to Florida and lost my records. Ron could verify my completion of the NAUI advance course so that I can get a replacement card without starting certification all over again. Anything you can do to help would be appreciated. I also served aboard the USS Abanaki and was in Vietnam assigned for a couple of days to HCU1 if that helps. Thanks for your help. I also want to join this group and attend reunions.
