My grandpa died a couple hours ago, he was a WW II veteran, in total he was on two battle ships through the time he was in the war, he was fighting when the planes were crashing into the planes and is even in a book (two pages i think) of having to jump over dead bodies to get around the ship he just recently got short term memory lose over the last 2 years after he fell off a ladder putting away Christmas ornaments, he remembered everyone just not stuff over the last hrs or weeks. He was a great person. One of the ships he was on was the USS Haraden (DD-585) and the name of the book he is in is called At War with the Wind he is in the back at page 465 and the two pages are in the 300's. He told a story that he walked out on deck and no one was on that side so he looked around and then he heard a kamikaze coming at him so he ran out of the way just in time as it exploded close to him and he was able to bring back a piece of the wing about the size of a shoe (length not width). He was in his late 80's, Its sad to know that he is gone but he had a good and long life.
