USS ESTES AGC-12
William F. Banfield III, - - - Submitted 8/18/07
I am William F. Banfield III and a San Antonio, Texas Police Officer.
My father, William F. Banfield Jr. served on the U.S.S. Estes as a
radar operator during World War II, 1944 to 45 and was involved
in the invasions of Iwo Jima and Okinawa.
I do not know his rank as I am not familiar with U.S. Naval rank.
I do have pictures of him in uniform and his shoulder patches.
I would love to get a roster from that time showing my father’s name.
I also understand that the “History Channel” on cable or dish
has run a piece on the history of the U.S.S. Estes, which I would
love to get. Any help in these areas would be appreciated.
My e-mail address is firstname.lastname@example.org. Home phone (830) 885 5424.
William "Bill" Banfield III
