Looking for Photo!
Looking for a photo of John R. Litchfield, born 7 March 1899 at Flanagan, Ill. died 15 September 1918 near Thiacourt, France. As a Navy pharmacist's mate serving with the 6th Regiment, USMC, he displayed exceptional bravery in treating the wounded while under shellfire. He was killed attempting to remove a casualty from a frontline trench and posthumously awarded the Distinguished Service Cross. A US Navy Ship was named for John R. Litchfield.
I have a power point presentation that features all 14 ships named for Navy Hospital Corpsman. I am trying to find photos of the Sailors that the ships are named for. I am hoping that descendants of this Navy hero may have a photo that can be authenticated to be used in the presentation and a website dedicated to the history of the hospital corps.
Please email or write if you can help me.
