Korean War Diary By Fred Eargle
eBook (ePub): $3.99
I began this diary on July 1, 1950. Our ship, the USS Valley Forge (CV-45), was in Hong Kong, China when the news of the North Korean attack on Allied forces arrived. We left Hong Kong and went to... More > the Philippines and Okinawa to take on supplies. I recall one of those days in which we loaded supplies most of the night in the driving rain. I participated in that - working on the flight deck for hours in a rain so heavy it was as if standing under a waterfall. We were all soaked to the skin. Our ship served a vital function in that undeclared war. We did our part in getting our ship and warplanes from one destination to another, on time, handling the radio and teletype traffic vitally necessary for that operation. For the most part, I stood watches in Radio II, the Main Transmitter Room, where I was supervisor. This diary is dedicated to the Radiomen and Telemen with whom I served on the Aircraft Carrier USS Valley Forge (CV-45), OR Division.< Less
