He shares their stories as a part of the Naval Heritage Command Lecture Series sponsored by the Naval Surface Warfare Center Dahlgren Division Integrated Combat Systems Department Nov. 15 at the base theater. “No matter what they did, whether they came back or died out on the ocean, were wounded, or blew up in their plane – all of that is a story worth telling,” he said. “It explains how the U.S. eventually triumphed over the empire of Japan in the Pacific War. It really shapes the world as we know it today.”
