In Their Own Words...

Stories as told by those who were there.

Unless you've experienced naval combat firsthand, no words can express the emotions that are felt. These are not old salt's tales of the high seas. These are stories of actual events, by the people who were there. These are things we should be reading about in the history books. If you have a story to share, please contact us. Please keep in mind the purpose of this page. I will let the stories explain that purpose.
