For close to seventy years, Robert J. Steinmetz Sr.
never spoke about the time he served in the Pacific
during WWII. Not even his wife or four children knew the details of the three years he served in the United States Navy.


Codename: Sob Story is the true story of how Steiny, a 19-year old Philadelphia native, fought and survived aboard the USS Gear ARS 34. Through seven major Pacific invasions, hopeless nights and longer days, he learned war is not something you can get away from--it stays with you for life.

An "as told to" memoir, written by his granddaughter
