USS Rexberg EPCER-855 • San Diego • 1948

PCER-855 arrived in San Diego from Guam on 15 February 1946 for duties under the Navy Electronics Laboratory. Re-designated EPCER-855 on 7 June 1946, she underwent alterations at Terminal Island Naval Shipyard, San Pedro, that enhanced her suitability for service as a laboratory research ship. Jeff was ordered to the Rexberg on January 22, 1948. On October 8, 1948 he left the ship for the Naval Training Center. His orders read “Expiration of Enlistment”. He must have reenlisted because he was ordered to Guam in 1950. The rest of the family followed in April 1951. Jeff is at the far left in the second row.
