Good Evening,

I am on a quest to locate a challenge coin and photos of the USS Manta (possibley grandpa on the ship) for a birthday present. He served on this ship from July 12, 1952 until July, 24 1954 according to his DD 214 papers. I have just started my search. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you and have a wonderful week.
