Was he at Okinawa?

Yes during the battle of Okinawa they were stationed on the very outer picket ring. The kamikazes were at a very high altitude so they didn't shoot at them.

Same as your Father, he enlisted in the Navy to avoid being drafted into the Army or Marines.

He served on an Amphibious Gunboats that had a flat bottom. LCS (L) landing craft support (large) ship.  They were referred to as Mighty Midgets because they had lots of guns and rockets for their small size. 

They would go in close to shore before an island invasion and drop off Australian Frog men that would deactivate mines.

They would also go in close to shore before the invasions and blast away at Japanese positions with rockets and guns. The Japanese wouldn't return fire because they didn't want to give away their locations before the troops landed.

After the war ended they spent months working with mine sweeper in the South China Sea. The mine sweeper would snag a mine which brought it to the surface and they would machine gun the mines until they exploded.

He commission and decommissioned his LCS (L)
He was the only crew member that was on it from sea trials to scrap storage mooring.
