Description

Page fifteen, photo of Dr. James Lee and Ethel M. Fisher, military patch, and narrative, “In August, 1944 orders were received to report to Pre-Commissioning School at Seattle, Washington preparatory to assuming duty as Senior Medical Officer of the U.S.S. Gage, A.P.A. 168, then under construction at Portland, Oregon. After a short visit home I proceeded to Seattle, where I went to school for six weeks. In October the ship was nearly completed and I rode her down the Columbia River to Astoria where she was outfitted. On November 12, the ship was commissioned an Attack Transport of the Amphibious Corps attached to the Fifth Fleet. On Thanksgiving Day, Nov. 25th, 1944 we upped anchor and sailed out of the Columbia River into the Pacific Ocean."
