It was the start of World War II for America. I was 18 years old and had just graduated from high school 6 months earlier. Monday, Dec 8, I was at the Navy recruiters and in Boot Camp Dec 15. 3 weeks later, I was assigned to the Armed Guard and to Little Creek, VA for gunnery training. By the end of January I was aboard the SS Eldena destined for Convoy PQ-13's Murmansk Run. Things happened fast at the beginning of the War. I am so thankful to have survived and I know all of my surviving AG shipmates on this message board are too.
