This is further info on Fred (Manuel) Enos, who married Lenora... their only child son Melvin died in a submarine accident in 1943 during the war. The name of the submarine... Tang.
I'm trying to get in touch with Robin Enos who posted the following blog re the Tang:

My late father's cousin Melvin Enos was Commuications Officer on the Tang, decorated with a Silver Star posthumously for his role in the escape. The family still honors Mel, whose name is inscribed on the Submariner's Memorial at Pearl. Alex Kershaw's excellent new book and Adm. O'Kane's book both tell a heroic story. We can never thank these men enough.

I'd appreciate any help in contacting Robin Enos.
