  • Notes 

    • As paraphrased from a letter (2 October 1993) from Karl Bernstein. My father George was working with a carnival that toured the Maritime Provinces when I was born in 1925. My parents settled inNew York City where my father worked at Madison Square Garden. I attended parochial schools and was raised as a Roman Catholic, the religion of my mother. I joined the Navy on my 17th birthdayin 1942 as an apprentice seaman. I served on an amphibious ship (an LST-tank landing ship) in North Africa, Sicily, the landing at Salerno and throughout the Mediterian as a Gunner's MateFirst Class. We then went to england in preparation for the Normandy invasion. I returned to the United States and attended the Naval Academy Preparatory School. I entered the Naval Academy inJune of 1945 on a Regular Navy Fleet appointment. I graduated in June of 1949. I retired from the Navy in August of 1981.
