Petty Officer Fritz Gustafson, United States Navy, was the loader on a twin Bofors 40mm anti-aircraft gun on the USS Townsend. His gun-chief was CPO Fremont Blaine Dalby. A man of few words, he nevertheless engaged in good natured bickering and insults with Dalby with whom he had served for a long time.
Gustafson did not survive the sinking of the Townsend in 1943 off the coast of Baja California.
