James McKeon's son James wrote me about finding his dad here on the Bangust pages as Gunner's Mate. James sent me a copy of the Commendation his father received from the navy for his part in the sinking of the Japanese Submarine RO-42 on the night of June 10, 1942. You can read Gunner's Mate James Francis McKeon's official Commendation from Admiral J.H. Towers below (posted with James' permission):
