One Response to Life at sea

    My Dad, Lester Baer, talked about a time when some sailors drowned when one of the launch boats had some sort of accident. I saw it mentioned in one of the crew’s papers. It made him angry that they had no life jackets on. He also spoke about movies on the deck and how a Japanese plane crashed into the island one night while they were watching a movie. He was older when he told these stories and had some dementia, so I questioned his memory. Nice to see he really remembered.
