story

By the time the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbor, James Loer had already been to war. A crew member aboard the USS Washington, James had been participating in the lend lease program designed to keep England afloat under the Nazi onslaught. As America mobilized, James and the USS Washington headed for the Pacific, where he would be involved in virtually every major operation of the War.
