Edward G. Almeida



Edward G. Almeida served honorably in the Naval Armed Guard. Edward was born a little earlier than the average Armed Guard (16 June 1915) so he was a little more seasoned, a little wiser, a good man to have aboard your ship, someone you could count on in case of trouble. Edward proved he could be counted on while on board ship in Convoy UGS-40, on May 11, 1944. They were attacked by German JU-88's in the Mediterranean and Edward put some 20MM rounds in the tail of one JU-88 and saw a puff of smoke come from the tail. One plane came so close to the ship they felt they could have leaped in the air and touched a wing. In case you want to get in touch with Edward, send an email to his son at M.ALMEIDA@COMCAST.NET. Edward lives in Brockton, Massachusetts. Edward G Almeida served on the following ships: S.S. ABANGAREZ 11/43-06/44 S.S. ALGIC 07/44-02/45 S.S. COALDALE VICTORY 03/45-05/45 S.S. GOLDEN ROCKET 07/45-11/45
