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 williambanfieldiii@yahoo.com. Home phone (830) 885 5424.

Sinicerely,
William "Bill" Banfield III
