COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Willie Nelson | USS Corregidor (CVE-58)

3:47   |   Following VJ Day, Nelson's ship heads back to the US with a boatload of marines - braving stormy seas on the way. Their passage through the Panama Canal is a tight fit, and they're forced to make modifications to the ship. (This interview made possible with the support of DALE GREGORY)
