My father Gotfred and my uncles were officers in the Norwegian Merchant Marine (Gotfred and Arne) and Knut Navy. They went to the Naval Academy in Oslo (Akerhus) in late 1920s-early 1930s.
DOES ANYONE KNOW Relatives or friends who served with them? It would be great to hear any comments shipmates might have...
There was a reception at the Los Angeles Norwegian Consulate honoring Merchant Marine survivors that my father and I attended about 1990. It was very touching and informative on the dedication and sacrifice made by these men.
