Description

The Report of Changes listing the Navy personnel on the USS Logan on November 26, 1944. The current location saw the personnel at the United States Receiving Station, United States Naval Training and Distribution Center (TADCEN) at Camp Elliott in San Diego, California. The form includes the names and ranks of the personnel.

A notable person listed on the muster roll is Lee Kenneth Brady (1926-1996). Lee was born on September 1, 1926, in Troy, North Carolina. His parents were Berrie and Melvin, a textile mill worker. He enlisted in the United States Navy on Jul 20, 1943, where he served on the USS Logan as an aviation radioman and participated in the Battle of Iwo Jima. After his service, he returned to North Carolina, and eventually moved to Florida, where he died on January 28, 1996. He is buried in the Florida National Cemetery in Bushnell.

In 2017, the University of Central Florida was one of three universities selected to launch the National Cemetery Administration’s Veterans Legacy Program. The program engaged a team of scholars to make the life stories of veterans buried in the Florida National Cemetery available to the public. The project engages UCF students in research and writing and fosters collaboration between students, faculty and local Central Florida schools to produce interactive curriculum for k-12 students. The corresponding website exhibit uses RICHES Mosaic Interface to create a digital archive of related data. The public can use the project-developed augmented-reality app at more than 100 gravesites at the Florida National Cemetery, where they can access the UCF student-authored biographies of veterans.
