Like most American families, there were numerous of my relatives that served in the U.S. Armed Services during World War II.
One of them was my great uncle John Davis Norfleet of Hickory (Chesapeake), Virginia.
John Norfleet was a Navy storekeeper (logistics & supply) that learned the trade at a school hastily setup in a hotel in Boston, Massachusetts and then he shipped out to Attu in the Aleutian Islands where he finished out the war.
Postscript: After the war John Norfleet returned home for a short while and then went the University of Virginia, graduating in 1952 with a degree in law. He died in 1985 at Hickory, Virginia.
Am a family historian of the Norfleet family (came to America in 1636/37 at Jamestown from Norfleet, England) and the Richard Golden family (came to America at Savannah, Georgia by way of Ireland). I welcome your photos, stories and memories. If you have no one to leave them to the please consider sending them to me. I promise to keep them safe, to digitize them, and to share them with the world. You can reach me at BillG@GWorx.com
