At age eighteen (1943) I was inducted into the US Navy and served 3 1/2 years on the US Vincennes, C-L64 with 1200 crewmen, and sent to the Pacific Theater where we saw a lot of action. We earned 8 battle stars and we were all so proud to be involved in the war effort. Right now there are about one million of WWII veterans left.
There are only a few of our brave crew remaining so each and everyone of us feel we are one in a million! To our brave crew!
