There are 2 pictures on this page that are next to the name Ivie, Jo E. I am unsure if both are pictures of Mr. Ivie. He was in the Merchant Marines and transferred to Navy. If you know this individual, please let me know which picture is correct.

Jo Ivie was my father. He's in the 2nd picture as Navy.

He also served in the Air Force later.
