Todd, Lewis J., was in the Navy July 18, 1952 to August 15, 1955. I have attached a picture of the Satyr, pictures of him on the ship and one with his friend, I'm not sure of the friends name. My dad is the one on the right. Also attached a picture of his "Domain of the Golden Dragon" certificate he received for crossing the International Date Line. The certificate itself hung on my grandmothers wall without being framed until she died. I rescued it from the trash and had it framed about 7 years ago. It was in a very fragile condition. Upon my father's death I gave the framed certificate to my oldest brother because that is what my grandmother always said should be done with it when she died. I am the oldest and a girl I felt strongly about carrying out my grandmothers wishes. New 1-10-11
