Response to 65 years ago, his voice was stilled but it still echoes today.
We had left Okinawa,USS LST 576 Monday April 9, 1945, headed for Ulithi. The first entry in our deck log for Thursday April 12, 1945 as follows:
[00-04 Underway in accordance with TASK UNIT 51.29.10 Secret Dispatch 080740 in Position #13, Division I. Base course 123 degrees T, eight (8) knots.]
So we was at sea 65 yars ago today.
Also on Saturday April 14, 1945 it is reported on the 08-12 watch in the deck log that our "Flag lowered to half-mast in commemoration of our President's death."
