  4. Condolences from a stranger; My Father-In-Law, George Frederick Becker, Jr. , a signalman WWII Coast Guard Vet. on LST 770, on the preemptor of the Pacific Fleet, became an engineer after the war. He worked for Knowlls Atomic Power Labatories, G.E. (now independent) He was involved with the engineering of the nuclear power plant on the Nautilus + many other Navy subs. & ships. Those that have interest, [mind stimulating for the young], you many want to look up The USS Albacore, Portsmouth, NH and the Naval Undersea Museum in Keyport, state of Washington. Emil, Jr. was four years younger than George, Jr.
