A true tribute to the U.S. Navy in the Pacific.

A real look into the daily lives and feelings of our Naval heroes of the Pacific. Makes me appreciate the suffering and sacrifice of our Navy and Marines in the Pacific in World War I I. I served with VF 194 off Yankee Station on the CVA 14 USS Ticondaroga and CVA 34 USS Oriskany and not been called to make the sacrifice that the WWII Sailors and Marines were expected to endure. Thank you for your service.

This was a quick read and focused on personal experiences of some crew members during WWII in Pacific campaigns. It follows one of them from youth to enlistment at age 16 and assignment to an aircraft carrier. The effects on the crew of being in a constant state of readiness and enduring the attacks by suicide kamikaze pilots including the lasting impact on them in later life after the war. I liked the way it followed mainly one individual but still explored some of the broader picture.
