|57k||Angus R. Goss was born 8 January 1910 at Tampa, Fla., and enlisted in the United States Marine Corps 12 September 1930. Marine Gunner Goss was awarded the Navy Cross and Britain's Conspicuous Gallantry Medal for extraordinary heroism in combat on Tulagi 10 August 1942. Although severely wounded by a grenade explosion, Goss ignored enemy machine-gun and rifle fire, charging into a cave where the enemy was entrenched and single-handedly destroyed the Japanese with a sub-machine gun.
USS Goss (DE 444) (1944-1958) was the first ship to be named in his honor.

USS George Clymer (APA 27) is moored in the background. (My grandfather, RMC Harold Jacobson, took this picture. He served in WWII on active duty then stayed with the reserves until his retirement. He passed away last year and I found a box of his old slide photos and had them put to a CD. I believe it was taken in Pearl Harbor and I suspect the year was 1958 but I don't know for sure. I don't know what ship he was standing on when he took this picture. I would love to find out what ship or class it is.)||John Jacobson
