To his immediate right (also standing) is Mr. Stark (Covington, KY); Mr. William Stiller is in front of my dad (Anthony Droongowski) and is the sailor who identified these other personnel. Next to Mr. Stiller (front row) is Mr. Lucas from Ohio. Mr. Stiller informs me they called him Ears. In the middle, front row is Mr. Mack (Chicago, IL, the 2nd person to Mr. Stillers right).
