Proud of his­toric fam­ily ties

Maryland Independent - - Community Forum -

I en­joyed your edi­to­rial and ar­ti­cles about the sur­vivors of the Pearl Har­bor at­tack. I have a picture of the USS Oglala (for­merly the USS Shaw­mut) on my wall next to a picture of my grand­fa­ther who served on the Shaw­mut between the world wars af­ter he en­listed in the Navy at the age of 15. The Oglala/ Shaw­mut had a long Navy ca­reer be­fore be­ing sunk at Pearl Har­bor. I am proud that my grand­fa­ther, Her­man L. Sem­rau, served on the same ship as Clarence Davis. Steven W. Bren­nan, Wal­dorf
