Bill Waas LST 516
Passage To Freedom Photos

My name is Bill Waas, I served aboard LST 516 as a Radioman Second Class during Operation Passage To Freedom.

You may have seen this picture elsewhere, but that's me standing by myself on the port side of the Bow Ramp.

Below are some pictures from my time aboard, and the operation.
