Hello Forum. I'm acting on behalf off Anne Flanighan, whose husband, Burt Flanighan served on the MV Wendover in the early 50's. Burt is sadly with us no more, but Anne is interested in any stories or anecdotes from anyone who knew Burt, that could be shared here. If you can help, any information would go a long way to helping Anne understand an important part of Burt's life. Thank you.
