We are working as quickly as possible to get all of the information in for each individual. Due to the website being hacked several times, we are uploading information from our 2001 database backup which is creating a very slow process. We expect to have everyone's full information in by the end of the August. Check here for progress updates. Thank you for your patience. For those of you interested in family history, we will be loading family data sheets and additional resources once the basic information is completed for each sailor.

"I was changing clothes in front of my locker when the bombs began to drop. Chief Turret Captain came in the turret said Jap's were bombing us. We started up in the turret to our battle stations. I was on the shell deck when the bow of the ship blew up. The turret crew gathered up in the gun room and it was very smoky. It was thought by our leader that we were being gassed."
