The following service records show my grandfather, Frank P Orban’s entry into World War 2 and promotions throughout the War.  He served on the USS New Jersey, USS Lousiville, USS Missouri, and USS South Dakota as one of Admiral Haley’s enlisted staff.  He was Admiral Halsey’s Coxswain (personal Admiral Gig’s Driver) as well as one of the flagmen onboard the ship. Here are 75+ US Navy Service Records showing his service and battles during World War 2 that he participated in on board the USS New Jersey, USS Lousiville, USS Missouri, and USS South Dakota.
