Poehler, Allen, - Photo Div - 1946 - - Submitted 4/10/13

I came across your USS Estes website today. My father, Allen Poehler, was a young officer on the Estes at the end of WWII. He was in charge of photography, among other things. I am sending you pictures of the day when Chiang Kai-shek visited the ship, as Lewis Heaverlo mentions on your site. I hope you all enjoy these. My dad spoke of this several times and was very proud of his service in the Navy.

He retired from the Naval Reserve in 1975 as a Captain, and died in 2008.

All the best to you,
Bill Poehler
