really liked it

It is very easy for me to think of the Roberts and her men as still sailing somewhere only rudely I am not with them .I miss them both, the living and the dead , and sometimes I can't remember in which group a friend belongs . They stay alive and they stay young while I grow old . Young and care free , young all over , young and smiling like Johnny. It is a good way to remember them .

Written by a survivor of the USS Roberts to Johnny LeClerq's mother , ten years after the battle of Leyte Gulf.
