Memorial Day, WWII
And thanks to all of you.
Was my grandfather, Joseph Zincavage given this medal for his service? Do you know any information about his jobs while serving during WWII?
I was very close to him. Although he spoke more about the USS MARYLAND more than anything else, I know little about his role on the battleship.
Any info you can give me would be enlightening.

Joseph Zincavage was my father. Edith was my mother.
Thank you for this website.
I did not know that Aunt Eleanor had died.
My father, to his dying day, talked about the war. He saw (as he called them) the Lad’s who lost their lives in battle. He told us, in detail, how he saw them die. He spoke of the suicide bombers going into his and other ships. Right before his death, repeating this, again, he cried!
Joe Zincavage was my grandfather. I don’t think any of us really know what his role was in war but I would say his greatest accomplishments were achieved in his love for his family. He will live forever in our hearts.
Joseph Zincavage was my Great-grand father and i have had the oppertuinity to grow up getting to know him and hearing some of his story’s. with most people don’t meet their great-grandparents. He was alive till i was 18-19. know I’m 29 now, and i always wondered what he did in the war. Be for he past away all he talked about was the war. I always wonder where the u.s.s. Maryland was docked finally or taking out of commision and scraped. i would love to tour that ship if it still exsite. I always Remeber him smoking them Optimo Cigars…
