COMBAT STORIES FROM World War II

Alvin Waldron | USS Lassen AE-3 - Navy

8:28   |   Signalman Alvin Waldron was a little more tense than most sailors. He wasn't seeing much combat but he was on board an ammunition ship and was well aware of the potential. Tokyo Rose told the Marines on Guadalcanal that it was sunk and they had no ammunition, but the Captain had outsmarted the enemy.
