Cohen Collection


Stanley H. Cohen RD2 was born in Philadelphia, PA. Like many boys (men) of his generation, he served his country in WWII. He served from March 1944 until May of 1946 and again from May 1951 until March 1952. Behind Stan, who was 17 at the time, but looks more like 14, is the medals the DE357 earned during her war cruise.
     Stan also served as one of the cornerstones of the reunion effort in the 80's and 90's culminating with what was possibly the best one for the original nucleus crew in Washington DC in 1999. Below, see the booklet that was produced after that reunion. It contains old as well as contemporary pictures (From all the Davis reunions) of the crew of the Mighty George E. Davis, DE357!
