Treasure Chest Thursday - U.S. Navy Discharge Certificate

It's Treasure Chest Thursday - time to show-and-tell another document or artifact that defines some of my family history. 

Here is my father's Honorable discharge certificate that I recently found in a notebook on my bookshelf hiding behind my boxes of other paper.  I scanned it at the 26 September Scanfest.

The front of the certificate notes that:

"This is to certify that _Frederick Walton Seaver_ a _Mailman Third Class, USNR_
is Honorably Discharged from the _U.S. Naval Personnel Separation Center, U.S. Naval Base, T.I., San Pedro, Calif._
and from the Naval Service of the United States
this _6th_ day of _February 1946_
This certificate is awarded as a Testimonial of Fidelity and Obedience
/signed/ W.L. Gottenberg"

The back of this certificate indicates that Frederick Walton Seaver entered active service on 26 August 1944, lists his birth date and birth place, notes his service as with:

"*  FPO, San Francisco, Calif., Flt Pool
*  USS Halford"

and under Remarks, notes:

"Asiatic Pacific Area
American Area
Victory Medal WW 2"
