John Howard Clopton


Date of Service:

Served on the USS Thomas Jefferson from late 1946
until his discharge from the Navy in 1949 or 1950

My dad went through electronics school in San Francisco after his graduation from High School (Pensacola High, Pensacola, Florida) in 1946. It is my understanding that Dad served as a radioman for his entire career. After his discharge from the Navy, Dad attended the University of Florida on the GI Bill and graduated with a degree in Pharmacy; however Dad was recalled while in Pharmacy School for the Korean Conflict but was able to serve that stint stateside.
