Description

Page fifty-three, photos of Dr. James Lee Fisher and his home, along with the narrative, “We left Manila for home on November 30, 1945 loaded to the gunwales with Army men, their pets and souvenirs. Traveling the northern circle at top speed, it took us 16 days to reach Portland, Oregon: a trip which usually took 3 weeks.

In Portland I said good-bye to the Gage and took the train for Great Lakes where the separation from active duty was accomplished in one busy day.

I arrived home December 22nd in time for Christmas, three years to the day from the time I left and pretty much the worse for wear. I wouldn't have missed it for anything but I wouldn't do it again."

An excerpt from newspaper article at the bottom of the page reads: "During World War II Dr. Fisher was commissioned a lieutenant commander in the Navy. After the war he resumed his practice in Youngstown as a prominent member of the medical society..."
