Pearl Harbor

Kay Darling:
A person has a lot of time to idle away when he is on a Battleship and an attack is not expected from the enemy.  As I sat around, clowning, on one of those leisurely days I realized there was action ahead.

We left Pearl Harbor, sometime in the middle of September 1944 with the Aircraft Carrier John Hancock and three destroyers and headed south by southwest.  The Hancock is one of the new carriers.

USS Hancock (CV-19)

We do not know where we are going but I guess the Chaplain will tell us tonight before the evening prayer.

I don’t think this is an ordinary trip this time. I guess there is a lot in store for us.

I love you Kay,
