ELECTRICIAN'S MATE Thompson in Atlantic, Pacific By Dowdd Harington North Atlantic patrol and'.duty in both theatres of the war has "taken Robert Thompson, Chicago sophomore, "into the far reaching corners of the world. With more than two years of sea duty, he feels perfectly at home on the high seas. Bob was called to active service in January, 1942, and received h#s boot training at Great Lakes. From there he was sent to an electrician school at Detroit, where he attended classes for one month and taught classes for three months. An electrician in civilian life, his occupation was to help him immensely in his work in the Navy, He soon attained the rating of Electrician's Mate first class and worked as a refrigeration technician aboard three destroyers during his tour of the Atlantic and Pacific.

In the invasion of Casablanca his ship was the first to go in. After Casablanca he was transferred to the UjSjS.

A trip through the Panama Canal put him in the Pacific where he was to encounter an enemy of different tactics and more determination. The battles were frequent and furious for hint in the Pacific: He participated in the raid on Wake island and every major battle that was to take place while he .was in those waters. Most notable of these battles were the Marshall campaign, Kwajalein, Rabaul, Saipan, Tinian, Truk, Guam, the Volcano island, Iwo Jima and the Bonin Island campaign. In the Bonih Island campaign, the navy task force of which the U.S.S, Conner was a part, encountered a large Japanese fleet, inflicting heavy losses and damages to the Imperial Navy. Three enemy cruisers and four destroyers were sunk and several more were severely damaged. Bob's ship took several hits and was compelled to return to Kwajalein for repairs. While there, Bob was transferred to his third destroyer, the U.S.S. Izard.
