Harold Henry Reichert

I am writing to share that my father, Commander Harold (Hal) Reichert passed away in January of 2013. He was a Pearl Harbor survivor. Petty Officer 2nd Class (Store Keeper Rating) Harold Reichert during the occupation of Tarawa was assigned to Acorn 14. As his son I have his jungle helmet from that occupation. He was reassigned in the spring of 1944 at which time he returned to the U.S. having been selected to enter the Navy officers candidate training program (V-12). He is survived by four children and the memorial will be held in Santa Cruz, CA. February 9, 2013. Respectfully Curtis R. Reichert, Potter Valley, CA.
