Crew listings
« on: February 27, 2015, 10:17:24 AM »
I am looking for a family member who served on a boat during World War II. Unfortunately I do not have very much info to go on. His name was Charles Joseph Hailey and he was stationed in San Diego during the war. I am not sure of very much else. My aunt seems to think he was an electrician, but not sure. I am trying to help her out. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm having no luck in my searches for Mr. Hailey.  I don't think there is a good database of WWII guys out there, public anyway.

Try getting ahold of the folks over at USSVI (United States Submarine Veterans Incorporated) because they have a great list and IF I remember correctly they now maintain the WWII submarine veterans page also..

Another possibility is Charles Hinman, the keeper of the OnEternalPatrol website at the Bowfin in Hawaii.  I know he has his list of lost submariners, so he might be a source for your quest.  His email is:

info@OnEternalPatrol.com

and the website is:

Good Luck!

You could try the National Archives http://www.archives.gov/index.html. They're hit or miss or the National WW II registry http://www.wwiimemorial.com/default.asp?page=registry.asp&subpage=intro.
