Rhode Island Victory Day

“The planes on deck had just been refueled and all that fuel in probably 90 planes was all aflame … men that were trapped in the fire started jumping. A curtain of fire extended from the flight deck to the water more than 80 feet below. We loaded our ship up with men that we pulled out of the water. Those who did not die immediately suffered horrible burns.

I remember that.”
