Mid-Watch in Verse: USS Maryland — 3 Comments

  1. Dave, I think you’re on to something here. There is a book in all this, especially if you could gain access to deck logs from other times during the war. Could make a really interesting and unique perspective on WWII. And if you needed help editing, I’d be glad to do that.

    • I’d love to do something like that! Alas, it would require some time spent at the National Archives in DC. I’m not sure I’m up to that! 😀

    • New development: I found that a number of deck logs for ships active in WWII are now available at the National Archives. I was unaware of this. After just a few minutes, I already found one poem from a WWII destroyer from January 1, 1945.
