  •  Oh my gosh!!! (4+ / 0-)

    I can't believe I forgot about that diary.  My Dad's ship -- the USS Radford saved many of the sailors from the Helena.  I remember sending that one to my Mom as well and she truly was amazed at the writing and details.  She forwarded that diary to the USS Radford Reunion Committee and it was distributed among the participants.  She also sent it to a dear friend of my Dad's and hers who was a survivor of the Helena who was pulled aboard the Radford.  He cried.  I can't believe how incredible you are to have included that story in the series.  

    I'm guessing that the one I'm thinking of was written by Sandy on Signal -- I was thinking "S" and thought it might be you.

    Thank you for reminding me. I will print your diary again and bring it with me to this year's reunion in Branson, MO.  Bless you, dear, SisTwo.
