I have an original copy of this magazine because my father, Matthew Arnold Carroon, was on the ship with Richard Wilcox and Bob Landry. My father is in the photograph in the last row of the Chapel service on page 51. He is wearing sun glasses. He was enroute to Pearl Harbor to work as a civilian contractor (Engineer) for the Navy Department at the Pacific Naval Air Base in Pearl Harbor. As the article states they boarded the U.S.S.... While the article is well written for security reasons they did not mention the name of the ship, although they did describe it as "a large Navy transport built in 1917." Dad arrived after a nine day voyage and was, of course, present on Dec. 7,1941. Can anyone tell me the name of the ship?
Many thanks

I was so excited to find this magazine online! My Uncle Jim Gill was the mess truck driver who was killed along with a friend from Bozeman, Montana in the article entitled "We Shoot Down the Japs" on pages 29 and 30. This article has been a comfort to my father and my entire family as it details what happened at Clark Field the day my Uncle Jim was killed. Because the mess truck my Uncle Jim was driving took a direct hit, there was nothing left of him to send home to my dad and his family. Knowing the story of his death is in Life Magazine forever honors his courage and military service and provides a memorial for us to visit and commemorate his sacrifice. Thank you!
