This particular article was authored by a gentleman that became a Midshipman after attending the US Merchant Marine Academy in 1940.
He tells of having a ship he was on ...the SS Stag Hound torpedoed out from under him. This is not an intense article...has some humor, the rescue details and so forth and so on...
Is it interesting....yes, at least I thought it was ....I think anytime you hear "first hand" what someone went through in the time of war....is extremely interesting.
